Breast Size Differences

Pre-operative Photo: 34 B with ptosis (drooping) and symmetry. Notice how the left breast is smaller and rides higher than the left
Two hour post-operative photo. Still some swelling, but already there is better symmetry. Size is 36 C.

Usually the breasts are not identical in size. In fact, slight assymetry is more realistic than two perfect spheres. However, when there are aestheticly significant size differences between the breasts, size correction is usually performed.

Case 1: Here, the right breast is larger by about 40 cc, sits lower on the chest wall and is droopier. Correction is by moving the left breast lower on the chest wall and placing more volume on the right implant vs. the left.
