Asymmetrical breasts are extremely common, affecting more than half of all women to different degrees. Breast asymmetry correction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure here at MYA, to improve confidence, make shopping for bras and clothing easier, and improve comfort.

Breast asymmetry is characterised by a variation in breast size, volume, and position, ranging from mild to severe. There are several reasons why a woman's breasts can change in size or volume, including puberty, pregnancy, breastfeeding, physical trauma or hormonal changes.
Breast volume asymmetry is perfectly normal, in fact, most women's breasts vary slightly in size or shape. Slight variances in breasts are of little concern; however, if the differences are greater than one cup size, or if a patient presents with severe ptosis (sagging) in one breast it can cause the patient psychological distress and self-confidence issues.
While uncommon, sudden changes in breast tissue can be an early sign of breast cancer. If you notice a sudden significant difference in your breast density but haven't experienced any weight fluctuations or hormonal changes, it's recommended you visit a professional. They will be able to complete scans - like a breast ultrasound or breast MRI - and determine whether it's a cancer risk.
Uneven breasts can present themselves differently, and some patients may present with one or a combination of physical characteristics:
Ptosis (sagging of the breasts)
Difference in size of breasts
Difference in the volume of the breast
Breasts sit in different positions
Nipple asymmetry (nipples may point in different directions or appear uneven)
Asymmetrical breasts can be corrected using cosmetic surgery. There are a few options available based on the patient's asymmetric breast tissue, what they want their boobs to look like and the surgeon's recommendations.
One of our highly skilled MYA surgeons will recommend the breast treatment plan to achieve the most suitable outcome for the patient. Breast asymmetry can be treated with the following procedures:
Breast enlargement - The patient may simply require two different implant sizes to correct the breast asymmetry.
Breast uplift (mastopexy) - This procedure alleviates ptosis and corrects the size and position of the breasts.
Breast reduction - This can be performed on one or both breasts to create the appearance of symmetrical breasts.
Augmented mastopexy - A breast uplift can be combined with implants to correct breast asymmetry and enhance the size of the breasts.
Nipple lift or nipple reduction -The surgeon may suggest reducing the size of the areola or repositioning and lifting the nipple to achieve even breasts.
Breast asymmetry correction can take between 1-2 hrs and is performed under general anaesthetic. Depending on personal preference and surgeon recommendations, patients have the option to be a day patient or stay overnight to recover in one of our MYA hospitals.
Our expert MYA surgeons will correct the shape, size and position of one or both breasts, to create symmetry, often with the use of breast implants. The physical features of asymmetrical breasts can range from mild to severe and each breast will be treated as a separate procedure. The surgeon may recommend a combination of procedures or two different implant sizes to perfect the shape. In severe cases, a two-staged surgery is performed, but in most instances, it is possible to complete the surgery in one stage.
Depending on which breast asymmetry correction procedure the patient undergoes, they should expect bruising and swelling to the breasts and surrounding areas and may experience tightness, discomfort and sensitivity following their procedure. Pain should subside after 7-14 days and pain relief will be prescribed to ease any discomfort. How much does a Breast Enlargement cost?
Breast asymmetry surgery prices depend on the treatment plan recommend by the surgeon. A breast asymmetry correction procedure with MYA can cost anywhere from £5,795. Procedure costs are tailored to individual requirements, and you will receive a fixed price following your surgeon assessment.
Please be aware that this price is subject to change depending on the type of surgery you choose to undergo - for example, having a breast enlargement or breast reduction alongside breast asymmetry surgery will alter the total.
