If you’re a woman in New Jersey who is suffering from breast asymmetry, know you’re not alone. Upwards of 85% of all women have some degree of breast asymmetry, though not all of them have asymmetry that is noticeable to others. This frustrating condition isn’t something you have to keep living with. Call Dr. Herbstman today to schedule a consultation so you can learn more about how he can help balance out your breasts and boost your self-confidence with breast implants. Keep reading as we learn more about the different types of breast implants that can be used to correct breast asymmetry.
Breast asymmetry is something that can fluctuate throughout a woman’s life and is defined as a difference in the form, position, or volume of a woman’s breasts. When a female enters puberty, her breasts can develop at different rates and may appear asymmetrical until they have finished growing.
Women may experience asymmetrical breasts due to hormonal changes later in life and a variety of other reasons including:
- Approaching or during menopause
- During pregnancy or breastfeeding
- When taking birth control pills
For most women who experience asymmetry during hormonal changes, their breasts will return to their normal shape and size.
Whether you’ve had asymmetrical breasts since puberty, or you’ve just recently experienced this problem, Dr. Herbstman can perform a breast augmentation and place breast implants to provide balance.
Types Of Breast Implants Used To Correct Breast Asymmetry
You’ll be excited to hear that Dr. Herbstman uses a variety of breast implants to balance out your breasts! Ultimately, which type is chosen will depend on what your specific goals are and what you want your finished results to look like.
Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone breast implants are pre-filled with silicone gel that has a natural feel. There are several options of gel thickness (gummy bear implants) which allows Dr. Herbstman to customize the results for each patient. Again, it all depends on what each woman wants. If you’re looking for more than just balance, and your goal is to have larger breasts all the way around, silicone breast implants would be a great choice because Dr. Herbstman can place breast implants of different sizes or shapes in each breast to provide balance and fullness. Silicone implants also provide New Jersey women with a more natural look and feel.
Saline Breast Implants
Saline breast implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. When Dr. Herbstman receives these implants, they are deflated. Saline breast implants can be inserted through smaller incisions but don’t have as natural a feel as silicone gel implants. In order to achieve the best results possible, Dr. Herbstman recommends breast asymmetry patients have both breasts augmented. Saline breast implants, like gel implants, are available in different style so each breast can be tailored very precisely so you have balanced breasts as a result.
