Asymmetric Breast

  • It is defined as two breasts different from each other in terms of their shapes and volumes.
  • Unobtrusive mild inequalities between the two breasts are common both in men and women. Remarkable asymmetries at a level that psychologically disturb the person may be caused by many factors and may be seen at various ages.


  • Reduction in one breast may be unequal to the other in the cases of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight gain, and weight loss.
  • Virginal hypertrophy: In this condition, a breast may grow faster and more than the other, in the development period during puberty, and this become a serious psychological problem that does not require waiting until 18 years of age for correction. If the size of the bigger one is normal compared to the size of an adult breast, it is more practical to equalize the smaller breast to the larger one by placing a breast implant.
  • One of the two breasts, which are initially equal, may lose its volume due to a local degenerative disease in advanced ages.
  • Reduction in one breast may be unequal to the other in the cases of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight gain, and weight loss.
  • A change may occur due to inflammation of breast tissue called mastitis.
  • Breast asymmetry may develop after limited cancer surgery.
  • Breasts lose their volumes throughout the aging process, during which an asymmetry may appear.
  • A breast in a man may develop more than normal (gynaecomastia) and cause breast asymmetry.


  • Surgical treatment is intended for equalizing the two breasts in terms of size and shape. For this purpose, a breast larger than normal can be reduced, and a breast smaller than normal can be augmented by placing a breast implant. Sometimes, a breast needs to be reduced while the other one needs to be augmented.
  • Fat cells taken from a person can be injected into her for limited and local breast augmentation.
  • Shape problems in the nipple can be solved and the circular areas around the nipple can be equalized during the surgery intended for equalization of the breasts.
