Hi! I'm a 22 year old mom. My breasts have always been a little uneven. But ever since I had my baby (three years ago) I feel like they look horrible, I am so embarrassed of them. My boyfriend has not even seen them yet. What do you think I should do? A coworker said she had the same problem so a doctor took some fat out of her stomach and put it in her smaller breast. I will not have more than 2000 to spend on that but I'm guessing I should save up more money.
Age 22, Mom, Uneven Breasts?

Breast Enhancement Surgery
The options are to have your breasts enlarged either with implants or with liposuction and fat transfer.
If you visit with a plastic surgeon, you will probably be offered several alternatives.
- enlarging the right breast (implant or fat)
- reducing the left breast
- and, reducing both areolas
You will without doubt need to save up some more.
When you ready for an in person consultation, RealSelf has listings of surgeons in your area. You should consider cross referencing the listings from the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (plasticsurgery dot org). A listing in the ASPS website assures you that your surgeon is not only board certified, but also is a member in good standing of the major plastic surgery organization in the U. S.
Thank you for your question, best wishes.

Breast Asymmetry Correction
Most women have some asymmetry. To correct this you need a full evaluation from an experienced Plastic Surgeon to determine what is needed as there are a number of options depending on your anatomy and your desires. Most of these are more than $2000. Therefore, try to ignore this for now and let your relationship go where it will. If your boyfriend likes YOU he will not care about the asymmetry.
Breast Augmentation in uneven breasts
It is not uncommon to have assymetrical breasts. They may become more noticeable after pregnancies and/or nursing. If you are happy with the size and shape of at least one of them the other one could be adjusted by enlargement/lift or reduction of the other one. The price, of course , depends on what is necessary to be done for one or both of them.
Fat Grafting to Breasts for Asymmetry
Fat grafting to breasts for asymmetry would be one option. Pictures would give me greater insight. I would think that you would need to save more money.
You Deserve to be Happy with your Body
Uneven or asymmetric breast are very common. Fat grafting or fat transfer is a possibility when correcting such asymmetries, but keep in mind as every woman's body is unique so are the methods and treatments for each persons body. I would strongly recommend seeking out a board certified plastic surgeon that can take the time to understand your expectations and help you achieve your ideal results. Best of luck to you
Best Breast Surgery for Me?
Thank you for the question.
I would suggest that you seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience helping patients in your situation. You may find it helpful to view their websites before seeking consultation. You will also find approximate costs associated with surgery listed on many of their websites.
Have the procedure performed when you are financially “stable”. Make a list of your goals; in my practice, I ask patients to communicate with the help of goal pictures.
