Breasts are never completely even. When there is a noticeable difference between the two, though, women start to worry. Women wear specialized bras, feel more self-conscious about the way our bodies look, and eventually, some women talk to a doctor. Based on the severity of the problem and the kind of results you want, it is not unusual for women to discuss breast augmentations for both breasts, not just one.
You may have dealt with asymmetric breasts since your teenage years, or it may be a recent development associated with hormone changes (like pregnancy). If you have begun to notice significant asymmetry, and it affects the way you think about yourself or your body, don’t hesitate to talk to a doctor.
Work with a Doctor Who Can Customize Treatment to You for the Best Breast Augmentations
There is no one-size-fits-all approach if you want the best breast augmentations. The severity of your asymmetry may be different. If it is a recent change, a doctor may want to wait to see if the breasts will correct themselves. They may not go back to the way they were before, and this will change the way we look at breast implants.
In some instances, we will balance out the breasts with a small increase in the size of one or both breasts. In other cases, you may want to significantly increase size. If significant hormone fluctuations are still taking a toll on your body, we need to see how everything settles. The breasts may even themselves out leading to asymmetric breasts caused by the very implants you used to fix the problem. Depending on the woman, you may want to get a breast lift as well. However, a breast lift should only happen once you are finished building your family.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach that works for everybody. Each woman’s body is different, and every woman has slightly different goals and needs. You may be in a different stage of your life. When you talk to an expert, we can help you to sort all of this out.
Is It the Right Time for Breast Augmentations?
Especially if you have suffered from breast asymmetry since you were a teenager, breast augmentations may seem like an obvious choice that cannot come too soon. However, it may not always be the right time. For some women, there are still milestones that you need to meet or barriers that stand in your way.
If you have any significant medical issues right now, for example, you may not be healthy enough to come in for surgery until those issues get worked out. Also, if you are pregnant right now, if you plan on being pregnant soon, or if you are currently breastfeeding, it is not the right time. Breast implants will not interfere with breastfeeding for most women, but the surgery could be more problematic for a pregnant woman. Any financial limitations are the least of the reasons why it may be better to wait.
If you do not have all of the money saved up right now, there are financing options available. Both doctors’ offices and private financiers offer different packages to fit your needs if you want to keep your savings account intact, or if you don’t have all of the money right now.
Who Is Eligible for the Best Breast Augmentations to Correct Asymmetry?
If you are seeking the best breast augmentations for any reasons, we ask that you be at least 18-years old. However, the average patient is in her 30’s. This gives women time to fully develop, and many women in their 30’s are also more financially stable to account for the costs of breast implants.
Women who want breast implants will be asked a series of health questions, and we will also evaluate your mental health. Some women have health issues that need to be addressed. Others may not be mentally healthy enough to continue. Breast implants have many benefits, but they are not meant to be a solution to self-esteem or emotional issues.
