Dr. C. Bob Basu: Breast asymmetries are very common. In fact I tell my patients over two-thirds of augmentations that I do, one breast is bigger than the other. Part of my examination when I evaluate patients is to asset the chest and the breast and to identify any asymmetries because we need to have a dialogue with the patient so they understand what the asymmetries are and what are the options that are available to best correct these asymmetries. So the physical exam is very, very important to identify any of these asymmetries. Asymmetries are very, very common. And we often times have many good options to correct for these asymmetries.
