Breast asymmetry (to some extent) is present in 2/3 of all women on the planet and is considered a common occasion. Pronounced asymmetry of the mammary glands is less common and, as a rule, brings significant psychological discomfort, which is not easy for a woman to submit. In case of a pronounced asymmetry, the help of a plastic surgeon is the most effective solution.

Breast asymmetry correction includes a surgical technique for correcting both the mammary glands and the nipple-areola complex. The main goal of the correction is to give woman's breasts a natural and beautiful shape, to balance the volume of the left and right breasts, to correct the shape and size of the nipples and areolas.


In most cases the deformities does not require medical intervention, so the correction is performed mainly for aesthetic reasons.

Breast asymmetry correction can be either an independent operation or performed together with mammoplasty (breast augmentation). In many cases, the implantation of breast implants allows you to achieve the best result in the framework of asymmetry correction, the implant allows you to equalize the size of the mammary glands, making them symmetrical.

Breast asymmetry can be congenital, or it can be acquired because of childbirth, breastfeeding, or the onset of menopause.

Indications for correction of breast asymmetry:

  • Asymmetrical breast ptosis;
  • Unilateral breast augmentation by 0.5-1 size or more;
  • Unilateral undeveloped mammary gland;
  • Unilateral / bilateral breast hypertrophy;
  • Unilateral / bilateral tubularity of the mammary glands (the breast has a shape of a tube).

There are no unamenable situations and in each case EMC surgeons will offer the least traumatic and most suitable method of breast correction.

In the EMC Clinic of Plastic Surgery the most complex technique of breast reconstruction (including after mastectomy) is also performed under the guidance of Professor Pshenisnov; this procedure allows to restore the correct shape and volume of the breast using the patient's own tissues

Correction of the nipple-areola complex

Asymmetry can affect not only size and shape of the mammary glands. The uniform size of the areolas, the correct shape and symmetrical position of the nipples also play an important role in the aesthetics of the breasts.

Indications for nipple and areola correction:

  • Inverted nipple syndrome;
  • Nipple hypertrophy;
  • Asymmetry of the nipple-areola complex on different mammary glands;
  • Deformation of the nipple;
  • Lack of natural pigment in the areola area.

Correction of asymmetry of the nipples and areolas can be performed as a part of the mammary gland correction, as well as independently, if the patient is concerned only with this problem.

The operation gives a possibility to restore the normal shape and size of the nipples. Correction of the nipple not only manages the aesthetic component, but is also important for normal breastfeeding in the future. With the correct procedure, erogenous nipple sensitivity is also preserved.

Mastering various surgical techniques and high professionalism allow EMC surgeons to perform the most complex breast correction operations, restoring a woman's sense of her own attractiveness.


If there is a large difference in the size of the mammary glands, the optimal options for correcting the asymmetry of the mammary glands are breast lift and / or augmentation with the help of implants.

Reduction and making the nipples and areolas more aesthetic is performed separately or together with the selected technique for correcting breast asymmetry.

The method of breast correction is selected by the doctor during an in-person consultation. After planning the day of the operation, the patient undergoes obligatory medical examination: it is necessary to perform tests (blood, urine, sugar level) and ECG, to consult an anesthesiologist. You can perform the entire list of tests and preoperative examination on the spot without leaving the EMC clinic.


Before the operation, you will receive individual and mandatory recommendations from the surgeon, including smoking and alcohol cessation for the period specified by the doctor.

The duration of the operation, on average, does not exceed 3 hours. After surgery for mammary gland asymmetry, the patient stays in the hospital for 1-2 days. EMC offers its patients the most comfortable conditions for staying in the hospital of the clinic:

  • single and double rooms, equipped with everything you need;
  • supervision of medical personnel 24 hours a day;
  • 4 meals a day (meals in the clinic take into account your personal preferences in food, in addition, EMC offers the opportunity to order a special menu from the Pushkin restaurant);
  • the possibility family member visits  in the hospital 24/7.

After discharge from the hospital, the patient goes through the rehabilitation period at home.


Immediately after the operation, the patient puts on a compression garment. Compression garments are mandatory in the postoperative period and provide additional support during breast recovery after surgery.

You can return to work no earlier than one week after the operation. Once a week during a month it is obligatory to come for a doctor's examination, all consultations after the operation are also included in the cost of the operation. Your surgeon stays in touch with you during the entire rehabilitation period, monitoring the recovery process. If you experience severe pain, discomfort and other unpleasant sensations, you immediately inform your doctor about it.

The final result can be assessed not earlier than in 2-3 months. In order to avoid any complications after surgery, you must carefully follow the recommendations of the surgeon. The final result depends not only on the skills of the doctor (they have a great impact though), but also on how you follow the prescribed recommendations, including exclusion of physical activity, prohibition for visiting bath and sauna, solarium and natural tanning.
