Questions and Answers

My breasts are not the same size. What can I do about it?

This post originally appeared on Realself.com.

I am 20 years old with very small breasts bras don't fit in. May I know what's the reason of breasts size differences? Also how can I naturally shape my breasts and make them same size.

Breast asymmetry
Given that your breasts are small, a breast augmentation with natural cohesive gel breast implants would both enlarge your breasts as well as correct the asymmetry. Minor breast asymmetry is quite common and sometimes using the same size implants camouflages any minor asymmetry if a larger size is desired. Different size implants can be used for more significant asymmetries. I use temporary 'sizer' implants which I place in the breasts as a 'trial run' during surgery. This is particularly important when there is asymmetry to check what combination of implant sizes does the best job of correcting the asymmetry. There are also different implant profiles that may be chosen if one breast requires more width and the other requires more projection. Autologous fat grafting which harvests fat from an area of the body to place in the breasts can also be a good option for correction of breast asymmetry.
