Breast Augmentation for Asymmetry
If you have breasts that are asymmetrical, it can leave you feeling extremely self-conscious about your appearance. This self-consciousness and make you hesitant about wearing certain kinds of tops or bathing suits. This can also have an impact on your overall self-esteem and body image. To treat these matters, Dr. Vishnu Rumalla often recommends breast augmentation surgery using silicone or saline implants.
The team at Tarrant Plastic Surgery would like to go over some basics about treating breast asymmetry with implants. We can discuss these issues in more detail at our Fort Worth, TX office during an in-person consultation.
Is Surgery a Good Option for Asymmetrical Breasts?
It’s not uncommon for women with asymmetrical breasts to undergo breast enhancement surgery to improve the size and shape of one breast or both breasts. Breast augmentation in particular is an effective option to consider, and uses a silicone or saline implant to alter breast size and shape.
Good Candidates for Breast Augmentation
Good candidates for breast augmentation are women who would like to increase the size of a breast that is asymmetrical, or receive two different implants to improve the overall symmetry of both breasts. These surgical candidates should be in good overall health and not suffer from health problems that would make surgery a risky endeavor.
It’s important that patients understand all of the risks and benefits involved with breast augmentation and the use of silicone and saline implants. We can go over all of these matters with you in greater detail during your consultation at our Fort Worth cosmetic surgery center.
Determining the Right Implants and Surgical Technique
Every breast augmentation procedure must be tailored to the needs of the patient. When addressing breast asymmetry, this is especially important. Some patients will just need a single breast implant in the smaller breast to even out the appearance of both breasts. Other patients may require an implant in one breast and a lift procedure on the other breast. When a woman want to increase the size of both breasts, the ideal size for the two implants must be determined.
As part of the consultation process, we can go over the different surgical techniques and options that are available, and help filter options until they are ideal for you.
The Results of Breast Augmentation
Thanks to breast augmentation, women with asymmetrical breasts can experience even, properly matched, and nicely shaped breasts. Depending on the nature of the surgery and the type of implant(s) used, scarring may be completely hidden from view.
We aim for natural results to help it seem as if patients didn’t undergo any sort of surgical procedure. This is why patient satisfaction after undergoing breast augmentation at our practice is quite good.
Alternatives to Breast Augmentation
Sometimes breast augmentation is not the ideal option for breast asymmetry. If a breast sags more than the other, a breast lift could be the most common sense approach. If one breast is considerably larger than another, a breast reduction could be most ideal. Breast implants may still have a role to play even if these other breast surgeries are used.
The number of options involved should help you understand why a consultation is essential, and why the insight of Dr. Rumalla can prove invaluable to getting the results you’re looking for.
