Breast Asymmetry

Dr. David Shafer of Shafer Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in New York City gave us the lowdown on differing breast sizes (technically called asymmetry). Shafer confirmed that this problem is totally normal and “most patients have about 15 to 20 percent asymmetry in terms of breast volume.” Often the nipples, breast creases and breast location on the chest don’t alight from side to side, so solving the problem is not as simple as getting a reduction or implant in just one breast. “I would never recommend an implant [or a lift] on just one side to improve asymmetry,” says Shafer. “The best results are when surgery is performed on both sides.”

“It’s also very important that if a patient is considering breast implant surgery that they consult with a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery,” says Shafer. “There are similar-sounding names and boards, so patients should clarify the credentials of their surgeon.”

“Most women do have some asymmetry and they shouldn’t be overly focused on minor asymmetry or other issues which are perfectly natural,” says Shafer.
