What is Breast Asymmetry Surgery
Breast asymmetry surgery, also known as breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery, is a cosmetic surgical breast procedure that aims to correct unevenness or asymmetry in the size, shape, or position of the breasts.
Breast asymmetry is a common condition where one breast is noticeably different in size, shape, or position than the other. It can occur naturally or as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or other factors.
Breast Asymmetry Surgery Prepartion
As with any major surgery, all medications and supplements which cause an increased risk of bleeding should be stopped 2 weeks prior to surgery. Please see our list of medications and supplements to avoid. As always, make sure to check with your doctor before stopping any medications.

Breast Asymmetry Surgery Recovery
Recovery from breast asymmetry surgery is going to depend on the techniques used to correct your asymmetry. You can expect some swelling and discomfort for the first few days following surgery, but this should begin to subside within 24-48 hours.*
If a breast implant is placed, your recovery may take longer. It is important to be patient and kind to yourself during your post-operative period as your body heals.
After surgery, you will need to refrain from any rigorous activity for the first 2 weeks, and you shouldn’t lift anything heavier than 10 lbs. You may begin to perform light exercise at 2 weeks post op, but should avoid any chest exercises such as push-ups.
You may begin more intense exercise at 4 weeks, and will be released to full activities at 6 weeks following surgery.
Breast Asymmetry Correction Surgery Price
The cost of breast asymmetry correction surgery can vary depending on several factors, such as the surgeon’s experience and reputation, the geographic location of the practice, the type of procedure performed, and the patient’s specific needs and goals.
It is important to note that most insurance plans do not cover cosmetic procedures, so patients will typically have to pay out of pocket. Call for Pricing!
San Francisco Breast Asymmetry Frequently Asked Questions
I had breast augmentation surgery in the past and now one of my breasts is firmer and higher on my chest wall compared to the other one. What is going on?
It sounds like you might have developed a capsular contracture around your breast implant. To fix this, you’ll need to have your implant removed along with the capsule surrounding it.* During the same surgery, a new implant will be placed into a newly created pocket.
How do I know that my problem won’t happen again?
During your surgery Dr. Sieber may use a mesh which acts as an internal sling to help prevent your breast asymmetry from reoccurring. There are no guarantees, but Dr. Sieber will use all of his additional training specifically in dealing with breast asymmetry to make sure you have the best long term aesthetic outcome.*
How long will it take to see my results?
If your breast asymmetry is severe then the results should be evident immediately after surgery.* However, in most breast surgery cases, it may take 3-6 months before the breast implants have fully settled.* Be patient during this process, and let Dr. Sieber know if you have any questions or concerns.
