Some women are not aware that by nature, breasts are not perfectly symmetrical. This is the reason why they keep on patronizing surgical procedures. The fact that one breast is usually bigger than the other affects most women. Remember that the asymmetries are more visible after pregnancy or other traumatic events that change the size, volume and shape of the breasts. It is not bad to go for breast augmentation especially if you want to correct the asymmetry of your breasts. However, not all asymmetries can be corrected with the help of plastic surgery intervention. Still, there are certain asymmetries that can be essentially corrected and improved.
There are two ways to correct volume asymmetries. The breast reduction surgery is performed by reducing the larger breast to a size closer to the other breast considered to have the more optimal size and shape. It can also be done by inserting an implant in the smaller breast to bring it up to the size of the other breast. Surgeons recommend having implants in both breasts but of different volumes. Using fat transfer to the breasts, aside from the breast implant, can further correct this imperfection.
On the other hand, asymmetries of the dimensions of the areolas can be corrected during a breast lift, augmentation or reduction procedure. Many patients are aware that their breasts will never be completely symmetrical so it is quite natural for them to wonder how beneficent a surgical procedure can be. Due to the numerous types of asymmetries and the different responses of the body during the healing process, there are no guarantees when it comes to achieving the perfect breasts. It may even be necessary for the patient to go through two surgical stages in cases where significant corrections are needed. This is why it is important to have a discussion prior to surgery.
