Breast Asymmetry Correction

Breast Asymmetry is a condition where one breast is larger or shaped differently than the other. A small amount of asymmetry is common. Most causes are not severe and may be congenital but are often of no significance. However major asymmetric differences often justify corrective surgery.

There are two main options for correcting asymmetry. Breast augmentation treatment can be performed on the smaller breast, increasing its tissue size and making it similar to the other. If an increase in size of both is desired, then both sides can be augmented using different sized implants.

The other option is to use expander augmentation. Expander augmentation is a safe technique often used in women with breast asymmetry, to increase the size of the smaller breast. Normally, the expander is left in for about a year or so before a second operation is performed to remove it and replace it with a permanent silicone implant. This method has the advantage that an accurate size match between your two breasts can often be achieved. The silicone implant that replaces the saline expander has a softer, more natural feel, which is why many women choose to have the expander replaced. Alternatively, the valve can be removed and the expander can be left in place, acting as a permanent implant, without having to be replaced

As an alternative, breast reduction can be performed to reduce the larger of the two breasts to match the smaller breast. This involves removal of the excess breast tissue. Either procedure results in breasts that are more similar in size.

Correcting breast asymmetry has not only helped women improve their appearance, but it can also provide a boost to self-esteem and confidence. They can often carried out following cancer treatment or having a mammogram. There are also cases of people suffering from scoliosis having breast asymmetry surgery.

The choice of which procedure to undergo to correct breast asymmetry is something your surgeon will discuss with you during your initial consultation. This, as well as other issues, will be covered.

BRAS & GARMENTS

Deciding to balance the size or shape of your breasts is a very personal matter, and ultimately only you can decide if it is right for you. Mr Banwell is a very experienced surgeon with a global reputation and he can provide you with relevant advice that can assist your decision.

Breast surgery is performed under a general anaesthetic, given by an anaesthetist, in a first class hospital, so you are assured of the highest standard of care.

The method used to balance your breast size or shape will depend on your chest size and shape, as well as Mr Banwell’s recommendations and your desires. Every effort will be made to assure that any incisions are placed so resulting scars will be as small as possible.

All sutures used in the surgery are absorbable, and so will not require removal.

Depending on the type of procedure you have most patients go home the day following surgery. You will wear a sports bra with surgical over the incisions for 8 weeks after surgery.

At home you will need someone to stay with you for the first 24 hours. When you are discharged you will be given prescriptions for antibiotics and for pain medication to minimise your discomfort. You should take only the pain medication prescribed, and eat before you take it or it might upset your stomach.
Eat lightly for 3 to 4 days after surgery and then resume your normal diet. Make sure you get plenty of fluids.
If you experience any problems after surgery, contact Mr Banwell’s team or the hospital immediately. This is especially important if your temperature is elevated.

Yes! Mr Banwell and his team will ensure you are seen in the hospital dressing clinic 1 week after surgery. My Banwell will usually see you personally at 2 weeks.

You will learn about scar management and how to massage and have your post-operative breast care reinforced.

Follow-up visits will be required, and Mr Banwell will discuss this with you.

I am delighted to say that everything has settled down very well and my upper lids are looking extremely good. I would like to thank you for the tremendous care you have taken with me over the past 15 months.


Rosemary F.

Just a note to say a big thank you for your professional expertise, your excellent care and your kindness towards me during my treatment.


Marilyn W.

I thought the team were helpful and efficient because they helped me to schedule my appointments around my working hours. They were always at hand to discuss any questions I had with a friendly and professional manor. Mr Banwell was amazing. He was totally honest and helped me decide which type of breast implant and procedure to have. We talked through my torrent of questions and concerns with ease. He asked me how I wanted my breast to look and I said I wanted them as natural as possible and that is exactly what I got. My new breasts have certainly made me feel more confident with ym body. I previously felt inadequate in the breast area and now I can?t stop smiling! I am so pleased with the outcome I only wish I?d done it sooner. The operation certainly wasn?t as scary as I thought it would be and I was looked after with the utmost care.


Samantha S.

My whole experience was made comfortable by warm, friendly and welcoming nursing staff. Mr Banwell has a lovely bedside manner and was more than happy to discuss my worried however strange. At 37 years of age and after 4 children I never thought I would have the tummy of an 18 year old again, Mr Banwell is a very clever man.


Sara A.

These were only minor operations, but I have never had anything like it before. All I can say is that it was an excellent place to start. The care was excellent from start to finish with a perfect blemish free outcome. I would certainly recommend the service to others.


Warwick S.

I was treated with the utmost care and respect and the team were very kind and supportive. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I am very pleased with the results of my surgery and would thoroughly recommend to others.
