Breast Asymmetry

One of my boobs was a 32A and the other was a 32B. It made buying underwear and bikinis impossible! This was my last resort and has given me much more confidence in my appearance!


Asymmetrical breasts of different sizes are common among woman and can be a deciding factor for many to have breast augmentation surgery.

Breast asymmetry is defined as a difference of form, volume or position of the breast and affects more than half of all women to different degrees.

Slight differences in a woman’s breasts are of no concern and are extremely common; we like to think of your breasts as sisters not twins. However, if the differences are greater than one cup size, it can cause some psychological distress or self-confidence issues.

All MYA breast augmentation surgeons specialise in asymmetry so are aware of the best possible way to reduce the size difference. Following a full examination, they will decide upon the best course of action for you and the results you require. The procedure could require two different sized implants, a unilateral breast enlargement (only one breast has an implant) or the reduction or uplift of the larger breast. It is important to be realistic about your final result; no two breasts are totally identical but rest assured you will be in the best possible hands with MYA.

One of MYA’s most famous asymmetrical breast enlargement patients is Vicky Pattison.
