Asymmetry is a compound word that derives from the Greek word "Ασυμμετρία". It is the opposite of symmetry and therefore expresses the lack of harmony, beautiful proportion and balance.
Breast asymmetry describes breasts that may demonstrate different size, shape, nipple and areolar characteristics, or any combination of these. While breast asymmetry is extremely common and mild discrepancies in breast form can be identified in most women, the presence of substantial breast asymmetry can be a source of concern and self-consciousness for many women with more perceptible differences.
The main areas of breast asymmetry are: asymmetry of the shape (uneven breast shapes), asymmetry of breast volume (uneven volumes), asymmetry of the nipples (uneven nipples or uneven nipple size), asymmetry of the nipple-areolar complexes (uneven areolas) and asymmetry of the inframammary folds.
Breast asymmetry can be corrected by breast augmentation, breast lift or mastopexy, breast reduction and by a combination of augmentation and mastopexy. Dr. Lemonas is starting with the identification of the breast asymmetry causes and afterwards proposes the ideal procedure for each patient that will result in beautiful, youthful, symmetric breasts!

Before breast asymmetry cosmetic surgery
Belgravia believes in transparency and takes your health seriously.
During your initial consultation, our team of plastic surgeons describes in detail and discusses in length the breast asymmetry procedure with you. We listen to your preferences, evaluate them and ensure that your wishes are compatible with your lifestyle and medical history. It goes without saying that during initial consultation our team of experts will answer every question you might have.
Initial consultation includes topics such as discussion on your desires and expectations, medical conditions and allergies, use of medication, alcohol and tobacco and previous surgeries.
Afterwards, your personal plastic surgeon will evaluate your general health status, discuss the options available to you and the likely outcomes, examine and measure your body and show you before and after photographs of past patients who have undergone the same surgery as the one you want. This way we ensure that you have a complete understanding of the results you will attain.
