Naturally identical breasts are not as common as one might think. If you are among the many women dissatisfied with the asymmetrical appearance of your bust, breast augmentation procedures offered at The Grace Clinic provide a fast, effective, and increasingly popular solution.
As a species, humans have evolved to perceive symmetry as beautiful. Balance in the physical form represents proper nutrition, hormonal balancing, and sexual fitness. It follows, therefore, that women want their breasts to be as symmetrical as possible. In a society that desires balance in our bodies, having uneven breasts can negatively impact a woman’s confidence and mental well-being.
If uneven breasts are indeed a concern for you, please take solace in the fact that you are not alone. More and more Canadian women are balancing uneven breasts through augmentation.
1) More Women Have Uneven Breasts Than You Might Think
In Canada, more than fifty percent of women are affected by breast asymmetry. Unevenness between the breasts can be mild, with perhaps one breast being slightly ‘saggier’ than the other, or more severely, with a difference of 2-3 cup sizes between the left and right breasts.
When choosing supportive clothing such as sports bras or braziers, designers frequently fail to account for the fifty-plus percent of women who have asymmetrical breasts. The result is uneven support provided to many women’s breasts, leading to potentially stressful and painful situations, particularly during exercise and out on the town when wearing more glamorous outfits is called for.
2) Uneven Breasts Are Far More Than a Vanity Issue
How we perceive body asymmetry and associated mental health issues is improving.
An article in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery highlighted the potential health issues women with uneven breasts face. In this study, women struggling with breast were more likely to develop an eating disorder, have lower self-esteem, and be more susceptible to bouts of depression.
With these risks in mind, the frustration caused by uneven breasts springs from more than vanity.
3) Augmentation is Increasing in Popularity
More Canadian women are asking plastic surgeons such as Dr. Grace and Dr. Tutino to bring their bodies into symmetry Public awareness and empathy regarding the impacts that poor body image has on women are also spreading.
As a result, there is more of a social infrastructure available to women who need advice regarding body issues. If uneven breasts are an issue causing you unnecessary stress, reach out for a private consultation to discuss how The Grace Clinic can assist you.
4) Breast Modification Procedures are Not All the Same
In a breast augmentation, the volume, shape, and firmness of both breasts are modified to give identical proportions to each breast. During your initial consultation, one of our board-certified surgeons will advise as to which variant of implant would be ideal for your case.
Both silicone and saline implants have their advantages. The most significant advantage of saline implants is that their size can be adjusted and customized to precisely your desired size, and as such in instances of severely uneven breasts, saline implants might be your best option.
5) Breast Augmentation is Not Your Only Option
In some instances, women with uneven breasts may not wish to increase their bust size. If you only want to balance the shape and firmness of your breasts, you may want to consider a breast lift.
A breast lift solves breast asymmetry related to drooping breasts by removing excess tissue and stretching the skin, thus reshaping both breasts and giving them symmetry without increasing their size.
As you decide how you want to confront breast asymmetry, we at The Grace Clinic urge you to remember you are not alone! Many women are choosing to take their confidence and happiness into their own hands and rebalance their uneven breasts.
