Abnormal breast development – known in the plastic surgery world as a congenital breast asymmetry – is an unfortunate reality for many young women. Most women do have slight differences in each of their breasts but these are unnoticeable in most cases.
However, some women have extreme differences in their breasts, which are caused by genetic tendencies or simply differences in the way paired organs like breasts grow.
Whatever the reason, breast asymmetry is a difficult situation for anyone to be in, destroying confidence and optimism.
Fortunately, Florida plastic surgeons at Accent Plastics have the ability to correct these differences.
Breast buds begin developing in young girls anywhere between the ages of 7 and 13 or whenever a girl’s biological clock makes her body create more estrogen. About two years after this event, the first menstrual period occurs while breasts continue developing for another 2-4 years, which is where noticeable differences in the breast size can occur.
By age 21 though, breasts are fully developed so if you still have noticeable differences at this point, a congenital breast asymmetry may be right for you. The only other events where breasts will change are pregnancy and menopause.
But what does a congenital breast asymmetry involve?
Well, it’s actually other common plastic surgery procedures except it’s done for a different purpose.
Since it’s a very personal thing, you cannot know what your breasts require without speaking with a qualified breast asymmetry surgeon.
To correct differences in the size of your breasts, surgeons can employ a breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction or a combination of these procedures.
Therefore, recovering from this procedure is exactly like other cosmetic breast procedures we offer at our Gainesville clinic.
Take a moment and see if a congenital breast asymmetry is right for you and what you can expect if you decide to go forward with the procedure.
