Having uneven or misshapen breasts is more common than you think. Still, those who struggle with this issue could often feel self-conscious and find it hard to find appropriate clothing. Dr. Bailey can perform breast revision surgery at our Newport Beach office to address this issue and restore natural symmetry. Schedule a consultation to learn more about this procedure and what you can expect.
What Causes Misshapen Breasts?
Asymmetry in the breasts can occur for several reasons. The rapid changes that occur during puberty and pregnancy can both lead to misalignment and misshapen breasts. Hypertrophy of the breast, a condition where one breast grows significantly bigger than the other, can be another factor. Moreover, injuries and improper healing can also be a factor.
Reconstruction surgery after breast cancer can also leave the breasts misshapen. Implant problems or complications from previous breast reductions or lifts can likewise leave lasting scarring and asymmetry. The good news is that these problems can be addressed through reconstruction, augmentation, and reduction procedures.
Concerns Over Asymmetry
In most cases, misshapen breasts can make it challenging to find clothing that fits well. They can also cause you to experience a lot of anxiety issues. In rare circumstances, asymmetry can indicate an underlying blood condition or cancer. If one or both of your breasts swell or continue to grow abnormally, you need to contact your primary care physician as soon as possible.
Surgery for Misshapen Breasts
Breast asymmetry surgery can be performed to reduce or enlarge the size of one breast, creating a more even balance. If you’ve had breast augmentation in the past and now struggle with misshapen breasts, revision surgery can be performed instead. These surgeries are typically done under general anesthesia and require some recovery before results can be seen. For many women, the results of these surgeries are life-changing, enabling them to wear clothes that flatter rather than hide their curves.
