Breast asymmetry is a common concern for women. All breasts have some degree of asymmetry, and minor differences and imperfections can ultimately result in unique and exceptional beauty. However, true breast asymmetry goes beyond mild discrepancies between the breasts. Breast asymmetry includes a substantially different breast size from one breast to the other, different breast shapes, uneven nipples and areola characteristics, or a combination of these concerns.

Breast asymmetry also includes tuberous breasts, a genetic condition that constricts the base of the breasts and causes malformation and asymmetry between the breasts. Breast asymmetry can be embarrassing and troublesome for women. This condition can cause trouble with a proper fit in bras, swimwear and clothes, a lack of sexual confidence, and lowered self-esteem.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alizadeh provides breast asymmetry correction in New York City at his private practice, allowing those conditions to be addressed.

Breast asymmetry correction surgery benefits:

  • More even and symmetrical breasts
  • More self-confidence and happiness about the breast appearance
  • Evenly rounded, full breasts
  • Symmetrical, aesthetically pleasing nipples and areolae
  • Better fit in clothing, bras and swimsuits
  • Improved quality of life

Types of breast asymmetry

There are many types of breast asymmetry. Each woman who is dealing with breast asymmetry has their own experience and unique physical concerns. However, there are some general commonalities to types of breast asymmetry. Some of the most common types of breast asymmetry experienced are listed below. Women may experience one or several of these concerns: 

  • One large breast and one small breast
  • Small breasts, with one smaller than the other
  • One breast sits higher than the other
  • Both breasts droop, but one hangs lower than the other
  • Differences in areola size, projection, or bulge
  • Overly large breasts, with one larger than the other
  • Unusual breast shape or breast constriction and asymmetry (also called tuberous breasts)

Breast Asymmetry Correction Surgery Details 

The first step to your breast correction surgery in New York City is to do a thorough consultation with Dr. Alizadeh. Dr. Alizadeh will examine your breast asymmetry, discuss your medical history and talk about your aesthetic goals. He will recommend the best procedures to correct your breast asymmetry, whether a breast lift, reshaping, reduction or implants are needed in one or both breasts. In some cases, your surgery will combine two procedures in order to achieve the best results. 

Breast lift

Whether your breasts are drooping due to age, genetics, pregnancy or weight loss, a breast lift returns a youthful, lifted, symmetrical shape. The nipples are placed higher and more evenly, and given an upward, attractive tilt.


Breast reshaping can create symmetry between the breasts, balance the areolae, align the nipples attractively, and create a matching round, beautiful breast shape.


Breast reduction for those with overly large breasts can correct breast asymmetry by balancing breast position, enhancing the shape and projection of the breasts, and achieving a beautiful balance between the breasts.


Discrepancies in breast size can be corrected with breast implants in one or both of the breasts. The size and volume of the breast implant or implants is carefully chosen to provide the exact size increase needed to achieve harmonious breast symmetry. 

Recovery Following Breast Asymmetry Correction

After your breast asymmetry correction surgery in NYC, you will wear a compression garment to reduce swelling and help your breasts maintain their proper shape as they heal. Often small drains are placed to stop fluids or excess blood from building up. 

We will send you home with pain medication, an aftercare regimen to follow that covers bathing, caring for your incisions, exercising, and returning to work. 
You will need about two weeks to rest and recuperate. Have a friend or family member drive you home after your procedure and help at home with any needed childcare, lifting, or usual home chores during your first week or two of recuperation. 

Although you will feel recovered, your body will still be continuing its healing process for several months as the swelling slowly goes down. During this time your breasts will settle into their final, symmetrical, beautiful shape and position.
