Breast asymmetry correction with implants is a surgical procedure that is used to correct breast asymmetry. This procedure involves the placement of implants to correct the size and shape or the overall appearance of the breasts. Also, the procedure is planned as per the patient's requirements and may involve breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction surgeries. The combination of these surgeries results in a symmetrical and proportionate breast appearance.
Breast augmentation surgery with implants:
The surgery is typically done on an outpatient basis, meaning you will go home the same day. You will be given general anaesthesia, so you will be asleep during the procedure. The surgeon will make an incision, usually around the areola or in the crease under the breast. They will then create a pocket under the breast tissue or muscle to place the implant. The implant is placed in the pocket, and the surgeon will close the incisions with stitches. The entire surgery takes around 1-2 hours.
Breast reduction surgery:
The incisions for a breast reduction are similar to those used for a breast lift. Incisions are made around the areola, and then vertically down from the areola to the crease beneath the breast, and along the natural curve of the breast crease. In some cases, an incision may also be made horizontally along the crease beneath the breast.
After the incisions are made, excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed. The breast is then reshaped to the desired size and the nipples are repositioned. If you have large breasts, the surgeon may also remove additional skin from the breast crease. Sutures are used to close the incisions. Some swelling and bruising might be present after surgery.
Breast lift surgery:
The surgery is typically done as an outpatient procedure under general anaesthesia. The surgeon will make a horizontal incision around the areola and another vertical incision from the areola down to the crease. The skin is then lifted and any excess tissue is removed. The nipple and areola may be repositioned and the skin is then closed with stitches.
