Can a Breast Lift Surgery Improve Breast Symmetry?

By: R. Sean McNally, M.D.


At The Oregon Clinic in Portland, OR, many women explore breast lift surgery with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean McNally as a solution to enhance their breast symmetry. It is commonly understood that natural breasts often do not match perfectly. However, noticeable differences can be effectively minimized through a breast lift for uneven breasts. This procedure can significantly improve alignment and balance, producing a more proportionate and aesthetically appealing appearance.

What are the key benefits of a breast lift for uneven breasts?

A breast lift offers several aesthetic and psychological advantages, making it a favored option for women experiencing breast asymmetry. The procedure assists in:

  • Lifting sagging breasts to achieve a more youthful and perky appearance
  • Enhancing the overall shape and contour of the breasts, contributing to better breast alignment
  • Elevating self-esteem by providing a more symmetrical look that many find boosts their perception of their body image

How does breast lift surgery address breast asymmetry?

Breast lift surgery can be customized to each patient's individual requirements, allowing for precise adjustments to the position and shape of the breasts. During the surgery, excess skin is removed, and the breast tissue is reshaped and repositioned. This approach is particularly effective for correcting breasts that may differ in how they hang or their position on the chest wall. Dr. McNally applies a variety of techniques to achieve the desired breast lift results, aiming to make both breasts look as symmetrical as possible.

What should you expect from breast lift results?

Breast lift results can vary widely, but the overarching aim is to create a more balanced and visually attractive breast profile. Patients undergoing this surgery in Portland, OR can anticipate:

  • Breasts that are positioned higher on the chest and exhibit increased firmness
  • Nipples that are realigned to point forward rather than downward, harmonizing them more evenly with the rest of the breast
  • A reduction in sagging and a smoother breast contour, which can enhance how clothing fits and appears.

What additional considerations should be made before undergoing a breast lift?

When considering a breast lift, it's important to have realistic expectations and understand that while breast symmetry can be greatly improved, perfect symmetry is not always achievable. The natural variations in a person's anatomy mean that slight differences can remain even after surgical adjustments. It's also important to consider the recovery process, which involves some downtime and care to promote optimal healing.
