For many women (and men), a flaw in one’s appearance can be of great concern, embarrassment, and even shame. Many women find their breasts to be one of the most prominent features of their bodies, and when something is not quite right with their breasts, they may feel frustration and seek out ways to fix the problem.
By just looking at the number of women and men of all ages undergoing cosmetic surgery each year in the United States, it’s quite clear that many individuals not pleased with the way they look are taking steps to improve and accentuate certain areas of their body through plastic surgery. Breast augmentation (or enhancement) using breast implants is hugely popular in this country, and its popularity continues to grow each year. But there are many other types of breast surgeries offered today including breast reduction surgery, breast lift surgery and even surgery to correct asymmetrical breasts.
Breast asymmetry, which is a difference in breast size or shape, or both, is actually a very common problem among the female population. In some cases, breast asymmetry is very mild and hardly noticeable, but in other cases, the difference is significant and visible to others. Sometimes surgery is indicated to equalize the size and shape of your breasts. Naples, Florida breast surgeon, Dr. Manuel Peña, has performed surgery to correct breast asymmetry on countless women, and he can help you, too.
Cosmetic surgery to correct breast asymmetry is typically recommended when the breasts differ from each other in a bra cup size. If the breasts differ less than a cup size, surgery may not be an option for you. During your initial consultation, Dr. Peña will discuss what is best for you and make recommendations accordingly.
