It is not uncommon for a woman to have one breast that is slightly smaller than the other. In most cases this is mild and may not be severe enough to consider surgery. Asymmetric breasts can make you feel self-conscious both in and out of clothing. It can also be difficult to find a bra or swimsuit that fits properly.
You may require surgery to one or both of your breasts this can involve a breast reduction of your larger breast, a breast enlargement of your smaller breast, a breast uplift (mastopexy) on one or both of your breasts. It may also involve surgery to reduce the size of one or both of your areolas (the brown area around your nipple). For simpler cases of volume asymmetry only in small breasts can a correction be achieved with different volume and or profile breast implants.The operation is usually performed under general anaesthetic, and can take up to 2 hours to complete.
