Breast Asymmetry Correction
Breast asymmetry correction can help women achieve more balanced and symmetrical breasts through the use of various techniques that can be tailored to fit each woman’s individual needs. To correct breast asymmetry, one breast will be either enlarged or reduced in size to create a naturally balanced look, which may involve multiple breast enhancement procedures.

His years of experience, combined with his formal training and attention to detail, make Dr. Basu one of the top plastic surgeons in the Houston area.

How Common Is Breast Asymmetry?
Nearly all women experience some degree of breast asymmetry, as it is very unusual for breasts to be perfectly symmetrical. The anatomy of your torso and rib cage also affects how symmetrical the breasts appear. Women with particularly pronounced breast asymmetry, however, may develop low self-confidence and a negative body image as a result.
What is Breast Asymmetry?
Why Consider Breast Asymmetry Correction?
Women whose asymmetrical breasts leave them feeling self-conscious can often benefit from breast asymmetry correction. Even if the disproportion is only subtle, you may be a good candidate for surgical breast asymmetry correction if you’re bothered by the inconsistency in the size of your breasts. If you exhibit one or more of the following conditions, you may be a good candidate:
- One breast seems too large
- One breast seems too small
- Your breasts are shaped differently
- A prominent rib affects the appearance of one or both breasts
How Much Does Breast Asymmetry Correction Cost?
The cost of breast surgery varies depending on the practice and the exact approach your surgeon uses. Your total costs will include facility fees, the cost of anesthesia and your pre-op and post-op appointments.
At Basu Plastic Surgery, we offer frequent special promotions for breast surgery. We also connect women interested in breast asymmetry correction with plastic surgery financing options to make their procedure even more affordable.
Your Breast Asymmetry Correction Options
If you’ve decided to move forward with breast asymmetry correction, you’ll need to consider a few options.
During your consultation prior to your corrective procedure, Dr. Basu will listen carefully to your needs and goals for your final results. During this time, you can let him know which breast you feel is the size that you’d like the other to match or if you’d like to change the size of both breasts.
Depending on your needs, you may need to decide on a breast implant type, since breast augmentation of one or both breasts is a common aspect of correcting breast asymmetry.
Your Recovery & Results
Recovery time will be similar to that of a breast augmentation in most cases, which is generally about 1 to 2 weeks before you should begin to reintroduce your body to more physically demanding activities. You will be provided with a special bra to wear during the recovery process and pain medications can be prescribed to ensure your comfort.
Within the next weeks, you may begin to gradually resume your normal activities, including moderate exercise. Over the next weeks and months, you will begin to notice your final results, revealing your balanced, symmetrical new look.
