By the term breast asymmetry, we mean the asymmetry in the size, shape, and position of the two breasts.
Breast asymmetry may be minimal and unnoticed (there is never the absolute symmetry), or it can reach very big differences between breasts with a psychological effect on woman.
It is believed that more than half of the female population exhibits morphological differences between breasts without significant aesthetic impact. The causes of the phenomenon may be related or acquired.
Depending on the method of recovery chosen by the plastic surgeon, restoration of breast asymmetry can be done by reducing the largest breast, or by increasing the smaller breast. In many cases, in order to achieve greater symmetry, both techniques may combined.
Post-operation, patient will need to wear a sports bra. The first change is on the 1st day after the surgery where the dressing is checked and the patient can take a shower. A mild massage can help remove swelling and relieve the area. The sutures are absorbable and in the first month it is recommended to avoid heavy hand movement and gymnastics.
Silicone implants do not prevent breastfeeding. To a woman who has breast augmentation it is recommended during breastfeeding and pregnancy to wear a good bra that will support the breasts properly.
