Breast asymmetry is usually a congenital breast tissue, and many causes can lead to asymmetric breast development. Dr. Yunaev’s expert cosmetic artistry allows him to master techniques in correcting congenital breast issues including breast asymmetry.

It is normal and natural that breasts don’t look exactly the same. However, some patients experience a high degree of uneven breast development. In some cases, this can significantly affect a person’s self-esteem. Breast asymmetry can be corrected with surgical procedures, and different techniques can be used to achieve a harmonious and balanced result.
What can breast asymmetry surgery do for me?
To create symmetry between a patient’s breasts, Dr. Yunaev can perform for example an asymmetrical breast augmentation on the smaller breast to achieve a matching size. In other cases, a breast reduction procedure might be used to create the symmetry. Some other patients might benefit from other techniques such as a breast lift, or a combination of other breast procedures; for example, breast implants of different sizes can be used to create symmetry.
There could be several skin incision patterns used for a breast implant asymmetry surgery, which will depend on each patient’s case of breast asymmetry. These can include a circular incision, a vertical scar, and an anchor type incision. At Breast & Body Clinic we aim to minimise scarring on the breast, but primarily the choice of operation is dictated by the patient’s own biology and physique and the amount of tissue that needs to be removed, lifted or if a breast implant needs to be used to achieve an even and harmonious result.
Before you decide on a breast asymmetry correction surgery, there are some critical issues to keep in mind:
- If breast implants are needed, patients need to be aware that they are not guaranteed to last a lifetime and future surgery may be required to replace one or both implants
- Smokers are at increased risk of complications from any surgery. If you are serious about undergoing cosmetic surgery, you should try to quit smoking
- We generally recommend waiting until breast development, childbirth and breastfeeding have stopped before undertaking breast asymmetry correction surgery
- Ability to breastfeed following breast symmetry surgery may be affected. Talk to your surgeon if you are planning to breastfeed a baby in the future
- Changes in the breasts during pregnancy, or significant weight loss or gain can alter the outcomes of previous breast asymmetry correction surgery
- Breast and nipple piercings can cause an infection
A breast asymmetry correction surgery may be a good option for you if:
- You are physically healthy
- You have realistic expectations
- Your breasts are fully developed
- Your breasts are considerably uneven
- One breast is lower than the other
Remember that the shape and size of your breasts before surgery will influence the surgical procedure and the outcome.
Am I a good candidate?
Naturally symmetrical breasts are often quite rare. If uneven breasts bother you, breast asymmetry may help depending on what your desired outcome is. For example, if you want to increase the size of your breast a uniquely sized implant in each breast may be required to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing shape.
Those who are happy with the size of their smaller breast may just require a breast lift that does not need implants. If your breasts are sagging, a breast lift can correct this. It is important to note that a breast lift may require additional incisions.
Severe asymmetry may require a combination of breast augmentation and reduction to achieve a more proportional size and shape.

What to expect after the procedure
Rest and recuperation are vitally important after a breast asymmetry correction. Your breasts will be swollen and feel sore and bruised. A light support bandage will be provided which you will need to wear for a couple of weeks with a special support bra.
You may feel very tired post-surgery, experiencing the most soreness during the first two to three days for which painkillers will be prescribed. You can also apply ice packs to the sensitive areas for additional relief.
Your breasts will likely be swollen for up to a week after surgery, and it would be best if you were to avoid anything that requires you to lift or stretch.
