Breast Asymmetry Sydney

Breast asymmetry is a common condition among women. In fact, no two breasts are the same. This is often the result of breastfeeding, hormonal changes or medical conditions that have affected the natural development of the breasts. Breast asymmetry can refer to shape, position or volume, as well as the uneven size or position of the areolae or nipples. For some women, this asymmetry is minor and makes little impact on their lifestyle. For women with a more prominent degree of asymmetry, the issue can raise significant concerns and can begin to affect your physical ability and quality of life.

Drawing on highly advanced surgical techniques, Dr Liew performs breast asymmetry correction surgery to restore balance and proportion to the breasts. As a highly customisable procedure, asymmetry correction can be combined with augmentation, lift or reduction, depending on your aesthetic desires. At Shape Clinic, Dr Liew takes the time to understand your concerns and reasons for treatment before designing a procedural plan tailored to your needs, aesthetic desires and holistic appearance. By personalising treatment according to your figure and body dimensions, Dr Liew creates naturally convincing results, harmonising the breast and the body to sculpt the most beautiful version of yourself.

What is Breast Asymmetry Correction Surgery?

Breast asymmetry correction is a surgical procedure designed to balance the shape, volume and position of the breasts. For some women, this may also involve reshaping the areolae and nipples to match the new contour. This surgery aims to restore symmetry to the breasts for a more proportioned and evenly defined look, encouraging you to feel more comfortable in clothing and more confident about your body. 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 Liew can perform this as a single procedure, focusing solely on creating uniformity between the breasts, or as a combined treatment. When paired with a lift or augmentation, breast asymmetry correction can address sagging skin, rejuvenate the area and significantly enhance your curves to complement the feminine physique. 

Benefits of Breast Asymmetry Correction

Breast asymmetry correction is a complex surgical procedure that requires years of experience and training to perform. In addition to Dr Liew’s medical proficiency, his aesthetic vision and attention to detail allows every one of his patients to benefit from this procedure. Benefits of this surgery include:

  • Enhanced proportion and symmetry between the breasts
  • Balance between the breasts and body
  • Improved physical comfort
  • Improved comfort in clothing
  • Reduced self-consciousness and improved confidence
  • Breasts that complement your unique figure

The Consultation

At Shape Clinic in Sydney, Dr Liew and his team take every measure to create a friendly and welcoming environment for his patients. Understanding the personal and intimate nature of this surgery, Dr Liew and his team strive to help you feel comfortable and relaxed through your entire surgical journey. As a passionate and committed surgeon, he encourages you to openly discuss your reasons for treatment, your needs and expectations, as well as any concerns you may have about the procedure.

During your consultation, Dr Liew will carefully examine your breasts, taking into account the proportions between each element involved in the surgery: the quality and quantity of the tissue, the position of the areolae and so on. He will assess your body shape and dimensions before designing a procedural plan tailored specifically to your needs, goals and aesthetic potential. Dr Liew will take the time to balance your expectations with your holistic appearance to personalise results and ensure the most natural-looking outcome. He will also talk you through each step of the procedure and the measures he will take to address your concerns. Dr Liew will also inform you of what to expect during the recovery period and how to properly care for your body after the surgery.

The Breast Asymmetry Correction Procedure

The correction surgery will vary depending on the surgical needs and current condition of each patient. The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia, which is a safe and effective way to ensure you feel no pain during the process. Dr Liew will then begin by making an incision in the area. For those with minor symmetry, a peri-areola or inframammary incision may be sufficient. While Dr Liew will always opt for strategically placed, more inconspicuous incisions, those requiring significant adjustments will benefit more from a lollipop or anchor incision. Through these openings, Dr Liew will reposition fat as necessary and manipulate the skin to create a well-proportioned and defined result.

During the procedure, Dr Liew may also adjust the areolae to complement the new breast shape. This will involve elevating and tweaking the areolae and nipples to match the position of the breasts. By refining each element belonging to the breast, you will achieve a more holistic and naturally convincing result. Once the tissue has been adjusted and the position corrected, the incisions will be closed with fine sutures to minimise scarring. Breast asymmetry correction generally takes from two to three hours, depending on the extent of surgery required.

The Recovery Period

Once your surgery is complete, Dr Liew will provide specific aftercare instructions to minimise wounds and ensure a successful healing process. Breast asymmetry correction generally requires a downtime period of five to ten days, though this will vary depending on how the breasts are adapting to the new shape. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled after your treatment so Dr Liew can remove bandages and stitches and assess how your breasts are healing.

For the first week of recovery, you should limit physical activity so to minimise any risks or complications occurring. Dr Liew will ensure you are fully aware of how to care for any discomfort, tenderness or pain that may arise during the recovery process. The body will continue to adapt and settle for up to six weeks, after which you will be able to enjoy shapely and symmetrical breasts. If after six weeks you are unhappy with the appearance of scarring, Dr Liew can suggest scar-minimising treatments or laser procedures that may help reduce their visibility.

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. If the lack of symmetry has affected your confidence or self-esteem, or you wish to feel more comfortable in certain types of clothing, then you may want to consider addressing the issue with surgery. Breast asymmetry correction would benefit women with the following issues:

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