Breast asymmetry correction
There are three forms of breast asymmetry :
Developmental breast asymmetry
The commonest form of breast asymmetry where the breasts are a normal shape but of unequal sizes
Patients with this form of deformity have small droopy breasts which have a narrow base and a large nipple. It can occur on one side or on both sides
Frequently Asked Questions
No two women with breast asymmetry are the same and your treatment will be tailored to your requirements as well as the abnormality. In some cases, operating on one breast alone, either augmenting it with an implant or performing a breast reduction procedure may achieve symmetry with the normal preferred breast. If you are not satisfied with the appearance of both breasts then you can opt for a differential reduction (removing different amounts of tissue from each breasts) or a differential augmentation (using different size implants or fat grafting) to match the breasts. After your consultation, the options available to you will be discussed so that you may make an informed decision
Your follow up will depend on what procedure you eventually have

This letter is written to express my very sincere thanks, and compliments, to you and every single member of your team for the courtesy and genuine earnest kindness that pervaded and prevailed during the several hours that my stay with you lasted.
Everything that I saw, or with which I was involved seemed to take place properly, nicely and thoughtfully and these comments I make apply to all other members of the operating theatre team from Mr Kenneth Kok downwards whose knowledge, skill and efficiency seemed to be applied so naturally and pleasantly.
You and your team put me at ease before my surgery and also the operation was reassuringly successful.
Thank you for what you have done professionally for very clear explanations and all the rest – a warm human approach. You have what the french call ‘symphathetique’ and I am grateful to you.
