Breast asymmetry reconstruction is a procedure that requires tremendous skill.  In fact, components of the operation include 1) augmentation mammoplasty procedure; 2) breast reduction; and 3) breast lifting procedures.  Only experienced Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons should be performing breast asymmetry surgical repair.  In general, breast asymmetry reconstruction requires changing one breast volume in order to create symmetry with the contralateral side.

Example No. 1 below shows a patient with significant bilateral breast hypertrophy with Grade 3 ptosis bilaterally.  The right breast is a 36E size breast, the left is a “B.”  In order to properly repair her breast, reconstructing it, she underwent a straight breast reduction procedure using the inferior pedicle Wise-pattern technique on the right and a breast lift on the left with a small 200 cc saline implant.

1 Cogenital Asymmetry 1

Example No. 2 shows breast asymmetry requiring a larger saline implant on the left with a straight formal mastopexy on the right to regain symmetry.

2 Cogenital Asymmetry 2

The third result shows breast asymmetry repaired with simply breast implants of different volumes.  The right implant was a 510 cc implant and the left 420 cc.  This allowed for excellent symmetry of her breasts.

3 Cogenital Asymmetry 3

Breast asymmetry is an operation that requires skill and experience and the surgery leads to extraordinarily satisfied patients, especially when they are trying to recreate a normal appearance to their breasts.
