Breast Reduction

Breast and money

If I have asymmetric boobs, how much will it cost to just get 1 boob done and not the other? Is it possible to just get 1 boob done and not the other?

Yes it is very possible to have one breast reduced to match the other side. As for the cost it is very difficult to say without an exam in person.

Yes - this is possible. Depending on the situation, you could potentially reduce, lift or augment one side to get a better match with the other. For example, if you had a C cup breast that you liked on one side, and a droopy DD on the other side - the DD could be reduced & lifted to be a closer match.

It difficult to give you an exact cost as much depends on just what your asymmetry is all about and what procedures will be recommended to provide you the best chance at near symmetry. I would speculate if all was needed was a unilateral augmentation, you can anticipated costs around $3500. A consultation is required and you can have a complimentary one with me if you're willing to do this over the phone or FaceTime.

Yes, you can get one breast done but the cost would depend on what is done to that one and could vary from $1500 to $4K.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. There are many options to be able to improve upon your natural asymmetry, but based on the procedure selected (breast augmentation, lift, reduction) costs will vary. I would see a series of ASPS board certified plastic surgeons in consultation to discuss the best option.

Probably you will be submitted to bilateral procedures because it’s very rare the other side not need some adjustment.

Make a consultation to figure out the details needed.

Yes, you can certainly have surgery on one breast if it will correct the asymmetry to your satisfaction. It will also be less expensive. So find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to discuss what you want to correct and find out what is involved. Hope all goes well!
