Male Breast Asymmetry

Breast #asymmetry is the condition when both breasts are not equal in size. In men, gynecomastia can include only one or both breasts. #Unilateral gynecomastia occurs when only one breast is larger due to gynecomastia, while the other breast is typically normal in both size and shape. #Bilateral asymmetry occurs when gynecomastia is present in both breasts, although each to a different degree. The amount of glandular tissue can affect the size, shape, and location on the chest wall of the enlarged area, the size of the areolas, and protrusion and diameter of the nipples.

Unequal or unilateral gynecomastia is not an uncommon condition. It is more significant when there are very noticeable differences between the two breasts. Usually, the degree of difference between the two breasts is not severe. Through a study of his patients, however, more than 80% of male breasts are not symmetrical, but the severity varies greatly from patient to patient. Patients should take this into consideration while examining their chests prior to surgery.

In addition to correcting the difference between breast sizes, the #areola often shrinks when #gynecomastia excision is performed. In more pronounced cases, the areola may even be larger. When the glandular tissue is removed, the areola #symmetry may improve.
The conditions that make up #asymmetry can often be corrected to some degree. It is very individual and varies for each patient. Every prospective surgical candidate should discuss this condition with an experienced plastic surgeon prior to surgery. The plastic surgeon’s role is to educate each individual patient as to the possible degree of improvement that can be realistically achieved in his particular case. 

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons the average #cost of #gynecomastia surgery can vary widely. #Surgery quotes should include the procedure itself, operating room facilities, anesthesia fees, surgeon’s fees, medical tests, post-surgery garments, prescription medication and other related costs. Most plastic surgery offices offer convenient finance plans that allow patients to pay a low monthly payment. 
Costs will also vary with geographic location.  Estimated costs can be found here on RealSelf.com, PlasticSurgery.org or Surgery.org.

Breast asymmetries are common and this could be related to fat, glandular tissue or both. If you are concerned about the appearance of your chest, I recommend that you book an in-person consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon in your area who has experience with Gynecomastia. They will examine you and provide recommendations as well as a price quote. Surgical costs vary between practitioners and locations.

All the best

Male breast asymmetry may be cause by a number of things, including gynecomastia, as well as differences with the muscle or chest structures.  A photo or better yet, an in person consultation is going to be necessary to give further advice.

Breast Asymmetry

The male breast has the underlying pectoralis muscle, soft tissue that is both adipose and breast gland, encased in a skin envelope.  When men have asymmetry it may be attributable to differences in the development of the pec, or differences in the amount of gland.  Clues that may suggest unilateral gynecomastia would include the development of asymmetry during puberty and most of the volume occurring directly behind the nipple and areola.  Truly, nothing substitutes for a good physical exam.  As my colleagues have suggested, we would recommend formal consultation with a plastic surgeon in your area.  Best of luck.

Breast asymmetry.

This really requires a photo. If it's a relatively minor degree find someone who specializes in the liposuction only procedure. Might be something quick and relatively easy to help you with the asymmetry.

Thank you for the question but without photos or an examination it is impossible to answer. So see some experts in your area and be evaluated.
