Anisomastia is the visible difference in size, shape or position of the breasts. It is more common among women. It can be congenital or due to various illnesses or surgeries such as removal of breast tumors.
Small differences in size, shape or position of the breasts is normal and occurs in many women. However, when differences are large and cause aesthetic problems, they can be treated with plastic surgery.
The surgery to correct anisomastia may include an increase of the smaller breast with a silicone implant placement, the decrease of the larger one, or both procedures simultaneously. Depending on the nature and causes of anisomastia the surgeon will choose the appropriate intervention for correction.
The postoperative course is similar to other breast surgery procedures.
