Correction of Asymmetry

The majority of women experience some asymmetry in their breasts. One may be larger or sag lower than the other. For some women these are minor differences, but for a lot of women the difference can be embarrassing and inhibiting. Meeting with Dr. Roberta L. Gartside in our Washington, DC, areas offices will help answer your questions about which cosmetic surgery procedures can be right for you.

When you are looking to correct asymmetry, you may benefit from any of the following procedures:

Depending on the size difference in your breasts, any of these breast surgery procedures may be appropriate.

If you would like to increase the size of one or both breasts, breast augmentation is probably right for you. Dr. Gartside will help you select the size that flows naturally with your body and may recommend a different sized implant for each breast to compensate for your own larger breast tissue in one.

Decreasing breast size is also an option. Not every woman longs for larger breasts. Some women experience physical discomfort, embarrassment, and difficulty with bras and garments because of the large size of their breasts. This is especially true if one breast is significantly larger than the other. Breast reduction to correct asymmetry can make you feel more confident with your body.
