Breast asymmetry is a very common condition where breasts differ in their size, shape, or position. In more pronounced cases, breast asymmetry can cause you lowered self-esteem and anxious feelings when wearing more fitted clothing. At Illuminate, we want you to be happy when you look in the mirror and comfortable no matter what you wear. Through breast asymmetry correction, you can achieve symmetrical and more attractive breasts with the added benefit of greater confidence.
Our philosophy at Illuminate Plastic Surgery includes the belief that having a positive relationship with how you look can help you realize your full potential. Correcting breast asymmetry using augmentation mammoplasty can be an important step toward elevated confidence and a more enjoyable quality of life.
The most common reason for breast asymmetry is simple genetics. You are just born with it. Other reasons may include weight changes, pregnancy and breastfeeding, congenital rib cage development, menopause and hormone changes, injury, or varying chronic conditions.
Breast asymmetry is usually not a cause for serious health concern. However, if your breast asymmetry is new, occurring rapidly, or unexplained by other factors, you should be screened by your medical doctor as soon as possible. In more rare cases, breast asymmetry could be associated with cancer or other serious underlying causes.
Symmetrical, natural-looking, and proportionate breasts can be achieved through the following customizable treatment options:
In more conspicuous cases of San Jose or Palo Alto breast asymmetry patients, the benefits brought by our expert and assured correction can be life-changing. Here are just a few:
Good candidates are in generally good health, have fully developed breasts, and are physically able to undergo surgery. If, as a result of asymmetrical breasts San Jose or Palo Alto patients feel limited and would like to know a more positive self-image, our asymmetrical breast correction could be a great option.
Before determining which procedure is right for you, you’ll first meet with Dr. David Boudreault for a comprehensive consultation. Dr. Boudreault will listen to your individual concerns and aesthetic goals to create a fully customized treatment plan. Your surgical plan alone may likely include options for combining procedures, such as breast implants and a breast lift, performed together for a more satisfying and complete result that also achieves the benefit of concurrent recovery.
Most results will be visible almost immediately. However, after any breast surgery, the breasts can take up to a year to fully settle or “drop,” especially with implants. If you received fat transfer augmentation, you will also be recovering from liposuction. You will need to take it easy for one to two weeks, and full recovery takes up to two months.

Breast surgery is considered very safe when performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. As with any surgery, risks could include infection, bleeding, or anesthesia-related side effects.
Although each patient is unique, and recovery times can vary with the type of procedure, with proper aftercare, full recovery time is usually around six to eight weeks.
Implants will need to be replaced after 10 to 15 years, but breast lift or fat transfer surgeries are permanent and should not need revision.
Your cost is largely dependent upon the type of procedure(s) performed. An estimate will be provided during your consultation. The average breast surgery cost in the US can range anywhere from $3,000 to over $10,000.
