What is Breast Asymmetry?
Breast asymmetry is a common condition among Las Vegas, NV women. It occurs when one breast is larger than the other. In most cases, the size difference between the two breasts may be so subtle that it isn’t noticeable to anyone other than the patient. In more severe cases, however, when one breast is a full cup size or larger than the other, corrective breast surgery may be necessary. Depending on the complexity of the case and the aesthetic goals of the patient, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Khorsandi will consider various procedures that may be considered, including breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction. The goal is to create a symmetrical, natural appearance.

"Picking Dr.Korsandi to do my breast augmentation was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! I thought long and hard about this for so long and went to 5 other consultations over the course of a year and I am so glad I waited to find someone who I felt like I had a good connection with. Not only does he have great bedside manner he made me feel calm and confident about my decision the entire time from pre ops to the day of surgery to post surgery care and check ups. He always took his time to answer my questions and I never felt rushed. I was so nervous, but the extra steps he has taken to make sure everything was perfect made me feel so good about my decision. He has a 3D imaging machine that really helped me realistically choice the size that was right for me that I hadn’t seen anywhere else. I’ve never gotten so many compliments and people ask me almost daily who did my surgery and tell me they wish they would have found this office before they had theirs done. They are seriously perfect. Thank you so much Dr. Korsandi, you helped me gain my confidence back!"- K.S. / Google / Mar 18, 2020

"I was overdue for my breast implant replacement. I knew I wanted to go smaller, plus have a lift as well. A couple of years prior to my ten year replacement anniversary, my best friend invited me to VIP’s open house event. My friend use to work with Dr. Khorsandi, prior to him opening his own practice. She saw first hand how he consulted with potential patients and was in awe of his professionalism with his consultations. He never promised anything he couldn’t deliver and always had the patients best health reasons and safety in mind. This impressed my friend and why she always spoke very highly of Dr. Khorsandi and had the upmost respect for him. She also witnessed how devoted and serious he was in his career and how hard he studied for his medical board certifications. At the open house event, I met Dr. Khorsandi and he gave me consultation on what I wanted done with my breast reduction. I was very pleased with what he could offer me. He also suggested I get blepharoplasty surgery as well. I was in full agreement. When I was finally ready to have my surgical procedures done, I went to a couple of other plastic surgeons for consultations, but my instincts directed me to Dr. Khorsandi. I’m glad I did. He is very knowledgeable and professionalism all around. His staff is kind and always available to answer any questions. My procedure went very well and I am so delighted with the results. My breast reduction with lift looks very flattering for my body frame and my blepharoplasty took 10 years off my face. I’m so happy I went with my dear friend’s recommendation to have Dr. Khorsandi perform my cosmetic procedure. I will definitely use him in the near future for my next wish list procedure, liposuction. ."- S.G. / Google / Nov 16, 2020
"In my years of experience with various surgeons, I finally found Dr Khorsandi. Making a major change in my life of a lift, breast reduction, and implant change, turned into being an amazing experience for me with him. His expertise and his amazing talent is the reason he is my doctor of choice. So grateful that he appreciates beauty and sees it from an artist point of view. Taking his time with my difficult case, he created the final outcome for me with his experience and I will say He is the Doctor to choose for your future cosmetic surgery decisions. Thank goodness, for this amazing surgeon and I will be forever grateful for him taking the time to make me feel amazing, beautiful, and confident. Dr K you are meant to be at the top of everyone’s list. Angela M."- A.L. / Yelp / Jan 27, 2021
It is more ideal to perform the procedure by making the larger breast smaller (reduction) compared to making the smaller breast larger (augmentation). The approach with breast asymmetry surgery depends on the surgeon’s assessment and recommendation once the patient is evaluated. Sometimes, several techniques may be incorporated during the surgery at once. Depending on the condition, nipple repositioning may also be done so that it is not out of proportion. There are also cases in which a secondary surgery may be necessary to fine-tune the shape and volume of the breasts.
Some patients may have a mild case of asymmetry where the placement of breast implants can help even out the shape and size of the breasts. Both silicone and saline implants are options. In cases where asymmetry is diagnosed, a variation in the CCs of an implant will be used. This is quite common and produces nice results. If breast implants alone will solve the asymmetry, the patient must have good skin tone and limited sagging.
If the patient opts to have the larger breast reduced, it will involve removing excess fat and skin until both breasts become event. This is generally the case for breasts that are severely asymmetrical. If the breast to be reduced is particularly large, a breast lift will supplement this procedure resulting in a more lifted breast appearance.
Depending on the form of the breasts, one or two breasts may be treated with a lift. The procedure involves trimming away loose, sagging skin and lift the remaining skin by closing the incisions with fine sutures. This may result in breasts that are more proportionate with one another.
There are patients who prefer a natural increase in breast size to an implant. These patients may benefit from the fat transfer method. This approach uses fat harvested from a donor site on the patient’s body and reinstates the purified fat into the breasts by injection. The fat is injected gradually in layers to ensure that there is no appearance of wrinkles or uneven pockets.
Regardless of the corrective procedure that is chosen, it will be performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The recovery period varies depending on the surgical approach taken. In general following breast surgery, patients are able to get up and around but must limit activity for a couple of days. Most patients are back to a normal routine within 7-10 days and exercise will be gradual at about 4-6 weeks. Results following breast surgery to correct asymmetry are gratifying for most patients and can help bring back self-confidence, especially when wearing tighter fitting clothes.
Breast surgery to correct asymmetry will vary depending on the technique use. The costs can range from $4,000 to $12,000 depending if liposuction is performed, or a lift, or the use of implants. If implants are used, there is about a $1,000 price difference between the saline and the silicone versions. Virtual consultations are $100 and in-person consults $300 the consult fee goes towards the procedure they are non-refundable.

Breast Asymmetry FAQs
Is This Common?
Surprisingly, breast asymmetry is a common condition. While breast implants alone are able to produce even, beautiful results for many patients, the other surgeries mentioned on this page can also create symmetrical breasts that last a lifetime. Patients who decide to have a corrective surgery feel they no longer have to worry or feel anxiety about having limited clothing options to hide the asymmetry.
How Bad Is Scarring?
When it comes to any cosmetic procedure that requires incisions, scarring is ultimately a part of the process. Corrective surgery for breast asymmetry may include a breast lift in which excess skin is removed. In these cases, the scars will be visible. If implants only are used, the scars will be hidden depending on the incision location (for example, under the natural fold of the breast, or within the armpit). For many, the result of this surgery to create even, natural looking breasts become more important than the scarring.
There are many factors that may contribute to breast asymmetry, but the exact cause remains unknown. Hormonal changes, injuries on the chest area, or breastfeeding are believed to be contributors to asymmetrical breasts. There is also a condition called juvenile hypertrophy that causes one of the breasts to become severely out of proportion to the smaller breast.
