In this PSC Case Files, board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Mark D. Epstein of New York and Dr. William P. Adams Jr. of Texas discuss a patient of Dr. Epstein’s who faced major breast asymmetry, or when the breasts are different sizes. Almost all breasts are asymmetric to some degree; breast surgeons often refer to breasts as “sisters,” not “twins.” Normal asymmetry however is somewhat hard to detect, or is only seen if someone is really looking for it. Even after a breast augmentation, breasts may not be exactly the same, because that isn’t nature.
That said, there are cases of major asymmetric breasts, such as Dr. Epstein’s case featured in this PSC Case Files. His patient had breasts so significantly asymmetric that it was obvious even with clothing on. This is an unfortunate situation that deserves surgical attention. Dr. Epstein and Dr. Adams break down how they address cases like this and Dr. Epstein shares his result, a change for his patient that brought her to a great place physically and mentally.
