Each breast asymmetry patient in Nashville is unique, so Dr. Griffin will carefully examine your medical history , your current breast shape, and your desires before recommending a specific, personalized approach focused on your goals in order to help you plan a procedure that creates the appearance you want.
Typical choices involved in breast asymmetry correction include:
- Implant type and placement: Dr. Griffin's extensive experience with the use of breast implants for breast asymmetry correction, enables him to choose from the entire collection of available breast implants (saline, standard silicone gel implants, or form-stable ("tear drop" or "Gummy Bear") silicone gel implants. His analysis will help determine not only which implant best "fits" your situation, but also what incision and technique is best for your individual needs. In your consultation he will outline the benefits and trade-offs of each option to help you make the right personal decision unique to you and your body.
- Combination approaches: Due to the many variations of breast asymmetries, some require a more complex approach to achieve satisfying results. In some cases, implants with slight or greater size or shape differences may achieve the desired results. In other cases, it will be necessary to reposition the nipple, refine the areola, or adjust the position of the breast mound through breast lift which may also include an enlargement as well.
- Special considerations: Some women are born with breasts that never develop, chest muscles that are missing, or chest bone shapes that are uneven and unsightly. This can become a physical and emotional burden during teenage years when breast are normally developing. Childhood surgical procedures or trauma can also keep breasts from developing normally, and for mature women disease or cancer can result in partial or total breast removal and possible negative changes from radiation treatment.
