    Hi Georgia
    Uneven breasts can alway be fixed. They sometime require a touch up procedure after your initial operation to make them perfect. Multiple techniques can be used to achieve symmetry - nipple lift, implants or fat grafting. It depends a bit on what volume and shape you wish to achieve, and what scars you are happy to manage.
    You won't be wasting your time or money.
    Good Luck

    Hi Georgia,
    I can appreciate that the degree of asymmetry you have does warrant correction.
    The key will be to achieve 2 breast mounds of the same size and shape with the nipple at the same height, so some aspects of your case make it easier than others.
    As volume is the issue in your case then the solution is going to be to increase the smaller side, or decrease the bigger side, and that choice is yours, the nipple is at approximately the same height so it may not need to be altered depending on the final cup size you are after. The real answer though is a full examination at a consultation and plan surgery from there once you have had a chance to assess all of the pros and cons, and see if it for you
    I hope that is of some help

    Asymmetry can be addressed with breast surgery and I routinely perform this type of surgery. There are several different surgical approaches and the best one for you will depend on your anticipated goals from surgery, do you want to look more like the bigger side or the smaller side?  One option is to increase the smaller size with an implant or you can decrease the larger size with a lift/reduction.   In my practice, I use a sizing system that allows you to “try your implant” in front of a mirror to see what size you are most comfortable with.  I find this better than digital imaging which can be a little misleading. Its important to remember though that your breasts are sisters not twins so very subtle differences are natural after surgery.  You need an in person consultation with a fully qualified plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and options for surgery.  In the right hands, you can achieve a great result and you won’t be wasting your time.
