Breast Asymmetry: Causes, Risks & Treatments

Breast asymmetry is a common condition characterized by the noticeable difference in size, shape, or position between a woman’s breasts. While mild asymmetry is a natural occurrence in most women, significant variations may lead to self-consciousness and impact an individual’s body image.

At Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery in Knoxville, we understand the emotional toll breast asymmetry can take on women, and our team has put together comprehensive information to help you understand the causes, risks, and available treatments to address this concern.


Causes of Breast Asymmetry

  1. Genetic factors play a significant role in determining breast size and shape, leading to natural variations between the breasts.
  2. Hormonal fluctuations during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause can also contribute to uneven breast development.
  3. Breast trauma or surgery can result in scarring and tissue damage, leading to noticeable asymmetry.

Risks Associated with Breast Asymmetry

  1. Emotional distress and lowered self-esteem due to dissatisfaction with the appearance of the breasts.
  2. Impact on personal relationships and overall well-being, especially when asymmetry is prominent.

Treatments for Breast Asymmetry

  • Breast Implants

Using silicone or saline implants to enhance the size and symmetry of the breasts.

  • Fat Grafting

Transferring fat from other areas of the body to augment and achieve better balance between the breasts.

  • Breast Augmentation

Surgically increasing the size of the smaller breast to match the larger one.

  • Breast Reduction

Reducing the size of the larger breast to achieve better symmetry.

  • Combination Procedures

Utilizing a combination of surgical techniques to achieve the desired breast shape and size.

If you are considering treatment for breast asymmetry, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery in Knoxville. Our skilled Plastic Surgeon Dr. David Lo will carefully assess your concerns, answer any questions, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the best possible results.
