Who Is Suitable For Breast Asymmetry Procedures

Patients come to us because there are unhappy with significant differences between the size (and/or) shape of their breasts and would like to achieve greater breast symmetry. Given the natural asymmetry of most women, it is usually impossible to achieve perfectly symmetrical breasts. Despite this, we can certainly work to make them more symmetrical, and often find that our patients are extremely pleased with their results after surgery.

Breast Asymmetry Surgery - Risks*

The procedure depends on your chosen course of treatment, however, most breast asymmetry surgeries require a 2-night hospital stay.

Breast enlargement involves selecting implants to boost your cup size (information on breast enlargement in breast asymetry surgery) Breast Reduction involves the removal of tissue and breast uplift involves repositioning the nipples and moulding the breast into a new shape whilst removing excess skin. These procedures all require a hospital stay and carry their own risks.

Our consultants will conduct a full risk assessment; based on your individual case and health background, in order to minimise any risk. As with any surgical procedure, there are health risks involved with breast asymmetry surgery. Our team will discuss this in full with the view of providing as much information as possible to enable patient lead, well-informed choices. If you have any concerns or questions concerning risk, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us at Aset: before, during or after your procedure.

Standard follow-up schedule: Approximately 2 weeks after surgery: a member of Aset hospital’s trained surgical staff will see you and check your wounds to ensure proper healing and no infections.

Approximately 6 weeks after surgery: further follow-up to check recovery. After 6 weeks, the follow-up appointments will continue at regular intervals if you are not yet fully healed. Appointments will continue until you are completely healed. These follow-ups are standard and provided at no extra cost. Please be aware that your exact schedule may vary slightly from the example due to your specific needs.


What if there is a problem?

As with all surgeries, there are risks involved. Although it is unlikely that there will be a problem, we will make immediately make arrangements for you to be seen by trained staff. If required, this can include the surgeon who performed the procedure. All our surgeons live and work in the local area, so they can be seen at relatively short notice. Our surgeons don’t leave the country immediately after surgery. If, on a rare occasion, the surgeon leaves the local area for other commitments, we will always ensure there will be another trained plastic surgeon from our team to provide you with comprehensive care. Complications directly related to surgery: In the unlikely event of a complication directly related to your surgery, we will provide or arrange further surgery and treatment at no extra cost for up to one year.
