Procedure For Correcting Uneven Breast. (photos)
Doctor Answers 8
Hi, you do have tuberous (constricted) breast deformity, which can be corrected. What option you choose depends on what size you want both breasts to be. The simplest would be a combined breast augmentation and lift on your right breast, and a lift on your left. If you want both bigger, then implants on both.

Thank you for your question and photos. You may be best treated with a combination of breast lift and asymmetric implant volumes. I recommend that you seek a board certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in this area and meet with them in person for a consultation. They will take measurements of your breasts, discuss your goals with you and provide procedural recommendations.
All the best

Correction of asymmetry
For best symmetry, it is ideal to have either both breasts with implants or both with natural tissue. Having one breast with an implant and the other without, usually results in some asymmetry; both in appearance and feel. I would start with a shaped contoured implant on the right and would opt for a side larger than the left breast. allow that to heal. Next do the left REDUCTION and still place a smaller implant on the left so that both will feel like the silicone. Even in the best possible scenario, they will not look exactly the same. But this should help give you a very natural and normal appearance. As always, best to be healthy, no smoking, and make sure any health concerns you have are managed by your doctor. Best to you.

Regardless of the semantics, breast reduction/lifting surgery on one side plus/minus breast augmentation surgery on both sides will likely achieve an outcome that you will be very pleased with.
Ultimately, careful selection of plastic surgeon and careful communication of your personal goals will be key. Sometimes, in order to achieve optimal outcomes, a two-stage approach should also be considered. For example, in the first stage, the larger/lower breast can be reduced/lifted; the second stage augmentation and/or revision of the previous lift would help achieve an optimal outcome.
Again, you will receive many differing opinions; do not let this concern you, given that there are ALWAYS many ways to approach any specific clinical situation.

Breast augmentation for asymmetry
Hi and thanks for the photos and questions. You have very significant asymmetry and fulfil the Medicare criteria to have surgery on both breasts. If you have private health insurance, this should cover a lot of the costs for surgery.Your smaller side is a hypo plastic, constricted breast whilst the other shows significant ptosis. If you are happy with the larger breast size, you will simply need a lift on that side and can then get an implant in the other to mach the volume. Unfortunately, as you say, they will never look exactly the same however it should be possible to make them significantly closer in appearance.You need to see a Specialist Plastic surgeon for an opinion. The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons lists those in your area. You will need a referral from your GP to access the Medicare and Private health insurance rebates that apply to both breasts.
I hope that helps.
