Breast Asymmetry Sydney

About the treatment

Breast asymmetry is common among women, especially since no two breasts are identical. It’s often the result of breastfeeding, hormonal changes or medical conditions that have affected the natural development of the breasts. 

Breast asymmetry can refer to:

  1. shape
  2. position 
  3. volume
  4. uneven size 
  5. position of the areolae or nipples

Drawing on highly advanced surgical techniques, Specialist Plastic Surgeon, Dr Smialkowski performs breast asymmetry correction surgery to restore balance and proportion to the breasts.


In most cases of breast asymmetry correction, patients prefer to enlarge the smaller breast to match the other, though some women prefer to decrease the size of the larger breast instead. 

Dr Smialkowski can perform this as a single procedure, focusing solely on creating uniformity between the breasts or as a combined treatment with breast augmentation or reduction.

  • Restore symmetry to the breasts
  • Balance the breasts’ shape, volume, and position
  • Can be combined with breast augmentation, lift or reduction

Who is a suitable candidate?

While most women have some degree of unevenness, correction surgery is most suitable for those with a more significant difference between the two breasts. 

  • Breasts significantly differ in size, shape or position
  • Tuberous breasts that cause an uneven breast appearance
  • Asymmetrical areolae or nipples
  • Difficulty selecting bras or clothing
