Achieve a More Balanced Appearance With Breast Asymmetry Correction in Austin

In truth, most women experience breast asymmetry to some degree, but for a smaller number of individuals, the difference between breasts can be significantly more noticeable, causing them to feel self-conscious or embarrassed. Plus, this issue can make it more difficult to find flattering clothing. If you’re interested in improving the symmetry of your breasts, you may want to consider breast asymmetry correction surgery at Austin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

The goal of breast asymmetry surgery is to create a more appealing and attractive balance in terms of size and shape between a woman’s breasts. Breast asymmetry treatment can involve augmentation of both breasts using differently sized implants, a breast lift or reduction, or a combination of augmentation and reduction or lifting.

What to Expect During Your Breast Asymmetry Correction Procedure

If you’re interested in breast asymmetry correction, the first step will be to sit down for a one-on-one consultation with one of our female plastic surgeons. She will examine your breasts and ask you questions about what you’re hoping to achieve with the procedure. With this information in mind, she will discuss your different treatment options with you and work with you to create a plan that’s custom-tailored to your specific goals.

Your surgery will be performed under general anesthesia, administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. Incisions will be made either in the breast crease or around the areola, depending on which will give you the best aesthetic result.

If a reduction in one or both of your breasts is performed, your surgeon will excise the excess breast tissue at this time, providing you with a more balanced breast appearance. The procedure may also involve a breast lift and/or the insertion of customized breast implants.

After all necessary aspects of your surgery have been performed, your incisions will be closed with internal sutures, and bandages will be applied as necessary. You’ll need to stay at our on-site surgical center for monitoring for a couple of hours, after which you can have a friend or family member give you a ride home.

What Is the Recovery Like After Breast Asymmetry Correction?

Immediately after surgery, you will notice some tenderness, swelling, and bruising in the surgical area. These symptoms are normal and will fade during the first week. Any pain you might experience will be well-managed with medication. You will want to rest as much as possible throughout your recovery and especially during your first few days at home. You should also stay hydrated, maintain a nutritious diet, and take regular light walks around your home.

After about 10 days, you can begin to resume your typical routine but will need to continue to avoid more strenuous activities, such as heavy lifting or sports, for at least three or four weeks. Additionally, you may need to wear a surgical support bra for several weeks to ensure proper healing and optimal results.
