Breast Asymmetry Correction Sydney
Asymmetrical breasts can cause a considerable social or psychological burden. Breast asymmetry correction in Sydney can bring a woman’s breasts into acceptable balance.
Nearly every woman has a degree of asymmetry when it comes to the shape and size of their breasts. However, a few women have more pronounced cases during which severe asymmetry is expertise whereby the difference in breast size and breast shape can result in difficulty finding confidence, establishing intimacy, and even picking a suitably fitting bra.
If you are troubled by the difference in the size or shape of each of your breasts, Dr Hunt can enhance or reduce the size of your breasts to correct the discrepancy and give you natural-looking, equally-sized and shaped breasts, which may enhance your self-esteem and improve your body image.
What is a Breast Asymmetry Correction?
Uneven or asymmetrical breasts are completely normal. However, if a woman has one larger breast and more breast tissue or a considerably smaller breast, their confidence could take a hit.
A breast asymmetry correction procedure is an invasive surgery performed to reduce the differences between uneven breasts to produce aesthetically pleasing symmetry of the breasts.
What Can Breast Asymmetry Correction Surgery Do For Me?
The technique used to recorrect the balance and symmetry of your breasts largely depends on the degree of difference between your breasts, as well as your individual breast characteristics. Dr Hunt can make smaller breasts larger using breast enhancement techniques, make a larger breast smaller using reduction techniques, alter the shape of both breasts to your desired outcome, or lift your breast to rid you of sagging or drooping breasts.
As you age, you may experience further changes in your breasts that may require further surgery to maintain aesthetic symmetry.
Tuberous Breast Correction
Tuberous breasts, otherwise known as constricted breasts, is a genetic condition that causes breast issues relating to balance, symmetry, and a generally unsightly aesthetic between your two breasts. Dr Hunt can utilise a variety of breast surgery techniques to correct breast deformities associated with tuberous breasts.
Benefits of Breast Asymmetry Surgery
Breast asymmetry surgery can help you get the breasts you have always wanted and correct imperfections at the level of the breasts. There are multiple benefits associated with undergoing these procedures such as:
- Getting breasts that are proportionate to the rest of the body
- Correcting breasts asymmetries
- Correcting inverted nipples
- A boost of self-confidence
How is a Breast Asymmetry Correction Performed?
The approach used to correct asymmetrical breasts depends on the type of asymmetry a patient is experiencing based on their individual characteristics. With that being said, all breast procedures are performed whilst you are under general anaesthesia to ensure you are in comfort.
If you want to enlarge a breast to an equivalent size to another, then breast enhancement is performed using either fat grafting or implants or both.
If you suffer from drooping or sagging breasts, then Dr Hunt can lift your breast to correct your balance.
If one breast is considerably larger than another, Dr Hunt can reduce the size, and simultaneously lift your breasts to achieve your desired level of symmetry. Take a look at our pages for more information on what these procedures entail.
Breast Asymmetry Correction Surgery Recovery Time
The recovery period following an asymmetry correction surgery varies depending on the technique used to approach your imbalance. As each patient differs, the recovery process will also differ. The factors to take into account surrounding your recovery are:
- Does your body heal well?
- Do you smoke? Smoking can increase your risk of bleeding and slow your healing.
- Did you follow the post-procedure guidance?
- Did you wear your compression garment for the duration you were informed?
Most breast surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, allowing you to return home on the same day. You will be mildly sedated following your anaesthesia and are expected to arrange your own transport home. Dr Hunt will prescribe medications to assist you with any pain and swelling you may experience.
You will wear a surgical bra with small pieces of gauze over the incisions for 2 to 3 days after surgery. At home, you will need someone to stay with you for the first 24 hours. Eat lightly for 3 to 4 days after surgery and then resume your normal diet. Make sure you get plenty of fluids.
You will be in pain. You will experience bruising and swelling around the surgical sites. You will be instructed to not bend over, perform strenuous exercise, or carry out any activity that can put pressure on your breasts. Pain can be alleviated using painkillers. The pain may last for up to 5 days, whereas bruising and swelling can last for up to 4 – 6 weeks.
You will be required to attend multiple follow up visits with Dr Hunt to ensure that you have not suffered from any complications, and your recovery is coming along nicely. You can return to light exercise such as walking 3 weeks after your surgery. If your job is not physically demanding, you can return to work after one week, otherwise, you may need to be cleared by Dr Hunt. Full results can be expected anywhere between 6 months – 1 year depending on the treatment you have had.

5 Myths About Breast Asymmetry
There have been many misconceptions surrounding the topic of breast symmetry, often leading women to lose self-esteem and confidence. The truth in the matter is, uneven breasts are completely normal and far more common than having perfect symmetry.
We will tackle the most common myths surrounding the topic below.
1. You don’t need a surgical procedure to achieve symmetrical breasts – There are many creams or forms of oral medications that claim to tighten your breasts and help you achieve a “natural lift”. Unfortunately, there is no product on the market that has been scientifically proven to do such a thing. Cosmetic surgery is more often than not your best option to create symmetry amongst other breast enhancements.
2. Asymmetrical breasts are not natural – Again, asymmetrical breasts are extremely normal, and in fact, desired by some (to a certain degree). Breast development often occurs during puberty. Individual breasts tend to develop at a slightly different pace. Over time, breasts may sag or be affected by other signs of aging that could lead to asymmetry further down the line. Various breast surgical procedures can be performed to correct any imbalance experienced between your breasts.
3. Asymmetry can occur if you don’t wear a bra – Breast sagging occurs due to the supporting ligaments and skin elasticity weakening as we age. This can eventually result in a difference in breast size, leading you to have one smaller breast than another. Wearing a bra has no impact on this, as it is simply caused by our constant battle with gravity. Enjoy your Zumba classes without worrying that your breasts will sag.
4. Implants are your only option – Nowadays breast asymmetry surgeries can be performed using multiple techniques, most of which don’t involve the use of implants. Breast enhancement and lifting, for example, can be performed using fat grafts from areas of fat around your body to give your breasts a fuller look.
5. You will have lots of scars – Although multiple incisions are made during your correction breast asymmetry procedure, they will be inconspicuously placed by Dr Hunt to ensure that not only they will not be visible, but will also diminish over time.
5 Breast Asymmetry Correction Mistakes
Picking a cosmetic surgeon to perform your asymmetry breast correction can be quite a daunting task, especially due to the increasing number of able cosmetic surgeons available today. Below we highlight 5 mistakes that women have made in the past that have led to undesirable outcomes. Make sure you learn from these so that you do not repeat the same mistakes.
1. Not researching your surgeon – Subspecialising in various aspects of plastic surgery has become more widely available. As such, more and more doctors are claiming to be the best breast surgeons in your region. You need to research your doctor before making your choice. Check out how long they have been performing their procedures, what other patients have said about them, and whether you can look through their before and after gallery.
2. Unethical reasoning – Altering the asymmetry of your breasts to produce a more aesthetic look is desirable by many. However, opting for the procedure to please somebody else can leave with you a changed breast shape that you did not want in the first place.
3. Not checking whether or not you are a good candidate – Many surgeons lay out their criteria of what they think is a good candidate to ensure that their clients are not put under any additional risk of complication.
4. Not setting a realistic goal – breast enhancement or alteration is often presented in fictional programs as a highly desirable procedure that produces seemingly outstanding results. However, understand that not everything on TV is real, and most of the time there is a serious amount of photoshop and make-up used to accentuate the size, shape, or symmetry of a woman’s breasts. Set realistic expectations by looking through real photos using before and after galleries.
5. Not asking the right questions – Use your time during your consultation with Dr Hunt wisely. Ask the questions you can’t seem to find an answer to and establish that you do want to proceed with the procedure.
