Your breasts could change in shape, size, and volume throughout your life for many reasons, such as pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and aging. For some women, breast tissue changes could result in significant breast asymmetry and adversely impact their confidence, wardrobe choices, and body proportions. However, this cosmetic concern could be corrected for several decades with asymmetrical breast augmentation in Virginia Beach.

The operation utilizes breast implants to decrease breast asymmetry, and Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery offers you a choice between silicone or saline implants. Despite having several weeks of recovery afterward, our patients report feeling significantly more confident in themselves and their appearance after surgery.  If you are unhappy with your breasts’ appearance for similar reasons, consider scheduling a consultation to discuss your ideal changes in-depth.

What Causes Breast Asymmetry?

Breast asymmetrical affects more than 50 percent of all women and may develop due to genetics, weight changes, pregnancy, and growing older. For instance, a possible yet rare cause of breast asymmetry is juvenile hypertrophy of the breast, a condition that affects breast growth during puberty. In addition, women have breast asymmetry during periods of significant hormonal changes, such as puberty and menopause.

In some cases, women may have breast asymmetry due to external trauma to breast tissue, infections, or diseases. However, asymmetrical breasts are more likely to develop if external trauma and medical conditions affect the breast tissue before they fully develop. This condition could leave women in Virginia Beach disliking their breasts’ appearance and result in unbalanced body proportions, making augmentation surgery a favorable solution.

Augmentation Surgery to Correct Asymmetrical Breasts

Currently, the only solution for correcting breast asymmetry is augmentation surgery in Virginia Beach. The operation uses breast implants to improve the symmetry between the breasts.

Most asymmetrical breast augmentation procedures use two different-sized implants to improve breast symmetry, shape, and size. The smaller breast implant goes into the bigger breast and the more prominent implant in the smaller breast for this surgical approach. After surgery, patients may have a larger breast and bra size than beforehand.

Alternatively, when breast asymmetry significantly impacts one breast more than the other, Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery may use only one implant. The surgery places the implant in the smaller breast to improve breast symmetry, so patients typically do not have a larger breast or bra size after surgery. Though the best surgical approach depends on the severity of a patients’ breast asymmetry, either method could improve breast and body proportions.

Consider Augmentation Surgery in Virginia Beach for Asymmetrical Breasts

Though breast asymmetry is prevalent amongst women, many do not like its effects on their breasts, appearance, and body proportions. In that case, asymmetrical breast augmentation in Virginia Beach is one treatment option for correcting the concern for up to 20 years. Further, you could choose to make additional cosmetic enhancements with the different options for breast implant size, shapes, and profiles.

Whether the operation uses one or two breast implants to make your breasts symmetrical depends on the severity of asymmetry and your cosmetic goals. After surgery, your breasts could look younger, voluminous, and more symmetrical, resulting in better self-confidence.
