As a board certified plastic surgeon with over 25 years of experience I’ve evaluated many patients seeking breast surgeries. Their reasons vary but one that has come up more often then you might expect is the desire to correct the difference in size and shape of their left and right breasts.
After a preliminary evaluation I’ll ask if they have visited a breast specialist to rule out any underlying medical issue such as a mass. If they have, andwith no health abnormality, we can proceed with cosmetic correction.
As much as we’d like to think otherwise, none of us is physically perfect; in fact, the right breast of a majority of women is of different size and shape from the left. It is when the disparity is significant that women usually seek cosmetic correction. Medical science has not yet identified what causes breast asymmetry, but it suspects a genetic component, or that one breast randomly grows for a longer time then the other.
Breast appearance has three major components: size, shape, and nipple position when you are standing straight. At the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Paramus, NJ, we can offer you several surgical options, depending upon your unique physical requirements and desires.According to what we find during your initial consultation we may recommend a breast augmentation of the smaller breast to bring it up to size of the larger; a breast reduction of the larger breast to create a new balance and harmony with the smaller breast; and/or we may suggest performing a breast lift for those patients with droopy breasts(breast ptosis). Then there are those women who decide to undergo a total breast augmentation to give themselves the gift of the fuller, larger breasts they’ve always wanted.
Breast surgery is among the most commonly performed plastic surgeries today, and with improved techniques it is also one of the safest procedures. I specialize in them because I’ve found that they are extremely rewarding for the recipients. I’ve personally witnessed how this aesthetic improvement can change lives for the better.
