Severe Breast Asymmetry Augmentation Correction

Posted On: November 12, 2012 Author: Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Asymmetry, Breast Augmentation, Dr. Linder Bra

The patient (pictured on the left) presents with severe breast asymmetry.  A 21-year-old white female, presenting with hypoplastic left breast, good candidate for augmentation mammoplasty procedure using high profile saline implants.  The patient underwent augmentation mammoplasty procedure using the dual plane technique through the periareolar approach.  She is now eight weeks out of surgery.  On the right breast, a 200 cc high profile saline implant was filled to 240 and on the left a 350 cc filled to 380 cc.

The patient is now shown eight weeks out.  She has excellent symmetry.  There is some redness around the periareolar scar in the Linder Sport Bra.  It is noticeable that she has good symmetry.  There is equal upper pole fulness and the patient is happy with her results.  Breast asymmetry without skin laxity can normally be corrected by different volume saline or silicone implants, although saline implants are slightly easier to use due to the ability to titrate the volumes of the bags.
