Causes Of Uneven Breasts

Puberty marks the start of the journey of normal breast development for women’s breasts, as they go through all sorts of changes throughout life. Starting around their early teenage years, their busts will fill out and reach their adult size - but that's just the beginning!

As you age, hormonal shifts can cause further modifications in breast shape or size. Pregnancy can also bring about changes in shape or size, which may linger even after breastfeeding is complete.

There are actually many things that can cause uneven breasts such as:

  • Time
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Implant consequences
  • Hormonal impacts
  • Breast tumors

As is apparent by this list, few, if any, of the causes are anyone’s ‘fault’.

Asymmetry is common and it is thought that most women have been affected by this to one degree or another.

For those seeking a more symmetrical look for their breasts, corrective plastic surgery may be the only viable solution. There's a wide selection of surgeries to choose from depending on your individual case, each one aiming to create a balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

From breast augmentation to breast reduction, mastopexy to liposuction - cosmetic surgeons can tailor-make treatments specifically designed with you in mind. With the right surgical intervention, you could soon have beautiful, even-looking breasts that bring out your inner beauty and confidence. Each procedure has its own advantages and disadvantages so it is important to consult with a medical professional before making any decisions on which treatment option is best for you.

Let’s take a look at the most common ways to fix uneven breasts:

  • Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery, or a ‘boob job’,  is one of the most popular methods for fixing uneven breasts. This involves the placement of breast implants in the chest area to add volume, shape, and create the desired end result.

Additionally, it is usually an outpatient procedure with a short recovery time vs. major surgical procedures. Aside from any abnormal complications, you won’t be laid up in a hospital bed for days.

  • Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer

If you're looking for ways to fix uneven breasts, breast augmentation with fat transfer may be the right option for you. This procedure can help restore volume and contour to areas of the body where volume has been lost, including the breast area.

It involves harvesting fat from an area of the body, then the fat is carefully injected into the breast in layers until the desired shape and size are achieved.

Fat transfer can be used to enhance the appearance of the face, breasts, hands, buttocks, and many other areas. It’s also a minimally invasive procedure that requires no incisions or sutures.

  • Liposuction For Uneven Breasts

The surgical procedure of liposuction is a surgical procedure that can be used to improve body contour, shape, and proportion by removing unwanted fat deposits. It can be performed on several areas of the body including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms, neck, and back.

If you’re concerned about uneven breasts, and maybe even want to reshape another part of your body at the same time, liposuction may be an option worth considering.  

  • Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)

Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is one of the most popular procedures used to fix uneven breasts. The process typically involves the removal of excess skin and tissue, and the repositioning of the remaining tissue in order to raise and reshape sagging breasts.

Depending on the individual's needs, a breast lift may be combined with other procedures such as breast augmentation or a breast reduction, which can further improve the shape and appearance of the breasts, as well as provide a more youthful look.
