Breast Asymmetry New York City
Introduction to Breast Asymmetry
Restoration & Rejuvenation
Hereditary conditions can create many anomalies, some that just make you unique, others that can be life-afflicting, and then some aren’t dangerous to one’s health but can lead to an issue with self-image later in life. One of these latter issues that affect many women is Breast Asymmetry, and Dr. William Samson in New York City does his best to provide quality, natural-looking results for every one of his patients to alleviate these concerns. To find out more about this surgical procedure, we have provided you with more information below.
Before & After
Let’s start with the basics
What is Breast Asymmetry?
Breast Asymmetry is a very common occurrence where a woman’s natural breasts have different sizes, shapes, nipple or areolar characteristics, and in some cases, any combination of these. The patient may have one breast that is much smaller than the other or have unwanted sagging in only one breast. There are also instances where there may be a tubular appearance or constriction to the shape of the breast, as well as nipple-areolar deformities. Underlying skeletal issues can also affect appearance.
Dr. Samson can utilize surgical correction to help improve the asymmetry and shape of the breasts using a breast lift, breast reduction, breast augmentation, or through a combination of these procedures. Once corrected, the results from breast asymmetry surgery can last for years, in certain cases, the surgery needs a “refreshing” due to the recurring process that caused the asymmetry initially.
Although the most common causes of breast asymmetry are tuberous breast (misshapen due to a congenital abnormality that restricts development during puberty), underdevelopment of a single breast bud, or prior breast surgery, it can also be caused by differences in:
- Breast volume
- Quantity of skin
- Position of the inframammary crease
- The size or position of areolas
There are even certain congenital conditions such as Poland Syndrome and Pectus Excavatum that are known to cause asymmetrical breasts. Poland syndrome is characterized by the underdevelopment of ribs, breasts, and upper extremities on one side, and pectus excavatum is when there is a sunken breastbone in the patient’s chest and becomes more pronounced during adolescence, causing both physical and cosmetic concerns.
