Asymmetric Breast Surgery Explained

Asymmetric Breast Surgery

If you’re embarrassed about your uneven breast size, you might want to consider speaking with a local cosmetic surgeon regarding asymmetric breast surgery. This procedure will allow a professional to examine your breasts and recommend the best course of action, which is usually enhancement surgery to the smaller of the two although some women prefer to have breast reduction on the larger on. This method of equalizing the size will help eliminate the self-consciousness you may be experiencing as well as make life that much easier when it comes to clothes and bra shopping.

The first step in the asymmetric breast surgery process is meeting for an initial consultation with a surgeon in your area. During this first appointment, the surgeon will examine and measure your breasts before explaining the various options available to you. He or she will be able to determine the size and shape of the implant required on the smaller breast during the surgery as well as giving you an explanation about the procedure itself, things you can expect during your recovery process and the potential risks of breast enhancement surgery.

Asymmetric breast surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure and can be completed in the surgeon’s clinic or a medical facility based on the professional you choose to complete the surgery. You will require a general anaesthetic before the process begins where small incisions are made around the areola and nipple. The surgeon will complete the implant process and use dissolving stitches before sending you to the recovery area. As with most outpatient procedures, you will need someone to accompany you to the appointment as well as drive you back to your residence.

The recovery time from asymmetric breast surgery varies from patient to patient but you can expect to be off work for at least 7 days. Most women are able to return to their regular routines in about 10 days. Some of the common issues associated with breast enhancement procedures is swelling of the breasts and bruising. You will most likely be sore in that area for some time as well. The surgeon will prescribe both antibiotics and pain medication to help you during the healing process. You will also need to remain sleeping on your back, which may be uncomfortable for you based on your regular sleeping patterns.

While you will experience some scarring from your asymmetric breast surgery, the surgeon will do all they can to make it as minimal as possible. The incisions are small and precise and the use of dissolving stitches helps reduce scarring during the healing process. The scars themselves will be concealed by clothing and the skin colour of the areola of your nipples. The level of scarring will depend on a number of factors including your skin type as well as your overall health and past illnesses. A surgeon can give you all the information you need about scarring and how to care for the incision points but they cannot give a definitive answer on what type of scars you can expect. If you have scars from a previous surgery, this will be a pretty good indication of what you will experience.
