Breast asymmetry correction surgery in Los Angeles is one of the most common problems I confront as a specialist in plastic surgery of the breast. In my initial consultations, I find that patients are sometimes unaware of their own breast asymmetry. Breasts vary greatly between people and, in some cases, between a patient's left and right sides. Identifying these differences early is important in planning for the ideal surgical outcome.
Reasons why patients may have a preexisting difference between their breasts include:
Conditions that may contribute to breast asymmetry developing years after breast surgery, such as breast augmentation, include:
Breast asymmetry is a more difficult condition to treat than typical cosmetic surgery of the breast. It requires a carefully thought-out plan. Surgeon experience is critical in making the many small decisions that together will determine the quality of the patient's result.
Patients frequently have several options. I take the time to explain those options to patients. I also specify which of those plans would most likely lead to a happy outcome. As a trusted advisor, I want patients to understand the full implications of their decisions so that they can choose wisely.
I am pleased to be able to offer patients a large variety of implant options for breast size correction in Los Angeles to suit their needs. As a clinical investigator for the newest generation of silicone gel implants, I have access to the implants that, in some cases, will be the best choice for a patient. This new generation of implants comes in five different styles that allow me to customize the implant choice for the patient's needs. In addition, I have the full selection of FDA-approved silicone gel and saline implants available as required for my patients.
Breast asymmetry is a challenging problem. Surgeon experience, diligence, and communication are all required to achieve optimal results. For me, these cases are particularly rewarding because of the satisfying outcomes I achieve for my patients.
