My breasts are naturally uneven. I had an implant put in one to even them out. I then breastfed and

wanted to get them fixed after. It's been about 2 years since then and then are still uneven. Dr. said he put in the same ccs in both breasts. He said they looked even in surgery. He also told me he knew one breast was naturally larger and had more tissue. He works at a learning hospital so i'm not sure how much of the work he actually did. Why would he put the same ccs in both breasts if he knew

Asymmetric breasts will always be asymmetric.

The breast is a cone shape and the implant is round or anatomic. The round and anatomic implant can not fill the small breast as the natural breast, because the fill cannot be equal. some times having a slightly asymmetric breast is very acceptable. All or most women have asymmetric breasts. No body will notice except you" the critical person" and the plastic surgeon. The judgement for asymmetric breasts is when one puts the different size implants and decides the best is to accept a little asymmetry . Remember you are beautiful even with slightly asymmetric breasts. A woman is NOT just a pair of breasts.

Hello, 95% of women have breast asymmetry to varying degrees. Pre-surgical diagnosis and planning to correct it is necessary if you want it as a patient. Obviously that did not happen. So if today is your wish, you should have a consultation with a certified plastic surgeon to plan and correct it. Today there is technology that allows us to be certain of the difference in volume between the Breasts and helps us select the appropriate prosthesis volume to correct it.

If you need more symmetrical breast shape, you can revised breast implant surgery with different CC for more even breast size but if your breast shape is much differnt or you have tissue sagging altogether, you may need to revised breast implant with diffeerent cc of silicone and breast lift surgery performed in the same operative time.
