For Women Struggling With Asymmetry, Don't Get Mad--"Get Even"

LAS VEGAS, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A desire for larger breasts

is not always the primary reason why a woman chooses to have breast

augmentation, says Las Vegas cosmetic surgeon Dr. Samir Pancholi. For

many patients, cosmetic breast surgery is an excellent solution to

help improve breast symmetry.

"Perfect breast symmetry is the rare exception, not the rule," says

Dr. Pancholi, who specializes in breast augmentation and revision. "It

is far more common for the breasts to have some degree of difference

in shape, size and position." For many women, the difference in size

or shape is so small it is difficult to tell. For others the

difference is significant and noticeable. Women don't need to live

with it though: obvious breast asymmetry can be improved with a

skilled surgical approach.

Breast augmentation surgery can be tailored to address the cause of

asymmetry and create a more aesthetically pleasing breast contour. Dr.

Pancholi outlines some of the common issues that breast asymmetry

correction can help to improve:

Uneven breast development. For some women, each breast develops

differently, resulting in asymmetrical size or shape. By placing a

uniquely sized implant into each breast, a skilled surgeon can help to

improve symmetry. For patients who would also like to increase their

overall breast size, this procedure can achieve both aims. In some

cases, a breast lift or reduction may be required to create a better

match between the breasts.

Variances in the rib cage or chest wall. A chest wall that naturally

bows out can cause the breasts to project to the sides, with nipples

pointing outward. Conversely, if the chest wall is slightly concave,

the breasts can appear to sit too close together. A cosmetic surgeon

can help balance out these anatomical issues with the right implants

and surgical approach to achieve a more symmetrical breast

augmentation result.

Changes in breast shape following pregnancy. A loss of breast volume

after pregnancy can result in sagging, or ptosis, in the breasts. It

is rare for sagging to affect each breast evenly, and women may thus

experience asymmetry in breast shape and nipple position. For these

patients, a breast lift with augmentation can help improve breast

symmetry, shape and volume.

Nipple and areola differences. Incorporating breast lift techniques

with skillful implant placement can help create a more parallel nipple

position or improve the size and shape of the nipple/areolar complex.

A surgeon can also remove excess skin to reduce the size of one or

both areolas.

Improving symmetry of existing breast implants. Occasionally, a

patient may experience asymmetry due to poorly placed implants. "If a

surgeon does not account for any natural variation in breast shape or

position, he or she could exacerbate any existing asymmetry," says Dr.

Pancholi. By adjusting the position of the breast pocket, or space for

the implant beneath the breast, a cosmetic surgeon can achieve a more

natural, aesthetically pleasing result.

While no procedure can create perfect symmetry, a skillful, customized

approach to breast augmentation can significantly improve symmetry.

Dr. Pancholi recommends that any woman bothered by breast asymmetry

consult an experienced cosmetic surgeon, who can help determine the

best treatment option.
