Breast Asymmetry Correction in New Jersey

Did you know that it’s actually more common for breasts to be slightly asymmetrical than perfectly even? However, significant asymmetry can make it hard to find bras and clothing that fit well, and you may feel self-conscious about your appearance. There’s no need to live with asymmetry if you’re bothered by it. Cosmetic breast surgery can help you get more even, aesthetically pleasing breasts.

A Personalized Approach

Breast asymmetry correction is a personalized procedure designed to help you get more evenly sized breasts with an improved shape & appearance. Dr. Parker can help restore symmetry with breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction. Which procedure is best for you depends on your personal goals, the degree of asymmetry you have now, and whether or not you would like to correct sagging, or ptosis, of your breasts as well.

“I could not be happier with Dr. Parker, Angela, Liz, Janet, and the rest of the wonderful staff at the Parker Center! From the first moment, they were beyond helpful and supportive throughout the process.”—Breast Asymmetry Patient

Breast Augmentation to Correct Asymmetry

Inserting the breast implant of your choice can help correct asymmetry by adding volume to the smaller breast. If you would like to increase your overall breast size, Dr. Parker can help you choose different-sized implants to achieve your desired size increase and improve symmetry. Breast implants alone can achieve excellent results if the breast shape is fairly even.

This 43 year old patient wanted a moderate increase in her breast size. Dr. Parker inserted a 300cc silicone implant on the right, and a 250cc silicone implant on the left to optimize symmetry.

Breast Lift with Augmentation to Correct Asymmetry

If there is some sagging that needs to be corrected as well, Dr. Parker can perform a breast lift with augmentation. A breast lift can also help to improve the overall breast shape and position for patients with more significant differences between the shape of the breasts.

This 41 year old patient was bothered by significant breast asymmetry. Dr. Parker inserted a 300cc saline implant on the right and a 150cc saline implant on the left. He also performed a vertical mastopexy (breast lift) to improve the shape & position.

Breast Reduction to Correct Asymmetry

If you would like for your breast size to match that of your smaller breast, or you would like both breasts to be smaller, Dr. Parker can achieve this through a breast reduction procedure, removing a greater amount of tissue from the larger breast and reshaping the breasts to appear more even in size and shape.

This 22 year old patient was referred to Dr. Parker for breast reduction. He performed a “lollipop” breast reduction, removing 325 grams of tissue from the right breast and 180 grams from the left, lifting and reshaping the breasts into a more aesthetically pleasing position.
