Can A Breast Revision Help With Uneven Breasts?

Have you ever stood in front of the mirror and noticed your breasts don’t exactly look like identical twins? Maybe one’s just a bit perkier than the other, or perhaps they’re different in size. You’re not alone—uneven breasts are more common than you might think. In fact, it’s perfectly normal for women and even men to have some degree of unevenness in their breasts. Fortunately, Dr. Buford at BEAUTY by BUFORD has a few plastic surgery tricks up his sleeves to help.

What Causes Uneven Breasts?

This variation can stem from several factors. For some, it’s simply a part of how their bodies developed during puberty, when hormones are firing on all cylinders, and things don’t always sync up perfectly. For others, changes might occur after weight loss or gain. Even pregnancy or breastfeeding, where one breast might produce more milk, causes differences in size or shape! And let’s not forget previous breast surgeries can play a role, too, leaving some women feeling less than thrilled with their symmetry post-procedure for any number of reasons.

Aside from the physical aspect, having uneven breasts can also tug at the strings of your self-esteem. It’s something that’s not often talked about, but feeling good about how you look plays a big part in your overall well-being. That’s why understanding the root of breast asymmetry is the first step towards feeling fabulous about your figure.

What Is Breast Revision Surgery?

First, let’s start with uneven breasts that have had previous breast surgeries. If your initial procedure didn’t turn out as planned, or if changes over time have led to new aesthetic issues, breast revision surgery might be the right step. This specialized procedure is designed to correct or improve the outcome of earlier breast surgeries—whether it’s tweaking the size, adjusting the placement, or even changing the type of implants used.

How Can Breast Revision Help?

Breast revision is a fantastic option for patients who want to fix uneven breasts caused by implants, but that’s not all it’s good for.

Correction of Cosmetic Issues

Sometimes, the aesthetic outcomes of previous surgeries don’t meet expectations. Breast implant revision can address several visual concerns, including:

  • Improving Symmetry: Balances the size and shape of uneven breasts.
  • Adjusting Implant Size or Shape: Modifies the size, type, or placement of breast implants to better fit the patient’s current desires and body proportions.
  • Refining the Position: Lifts or repositions implants that have shifted over time.

Resolving Medical Complications

Besides improving appearance, revision surgery can correct medical issues arising from previous procedures, such as:

  • Capsular Contracture Treatment: Removes or replaces the scar tissue that forms around the implant, which can make the breast firm, cause distortion, and become painful. 
  • Implant Defects: Addresses problems like ruptured or leaking implants, guaranteeing both safety and comfort.

Making Updates

Much like how your fashion sense and cellphone might change over the years, so will plastic surgery products and your personal body goals! Breast revision can help keep you “up-to-date”:

  • Modernize Implant Material: Advances in implant technology may prompt a switch to newer, safer, more sophisticated options that offer better results and feel more natural.
  • Personalization Over Time: As bodies change due to weight fluctuations, aging, or lifestyle changes, breast revision can adapt the results of earlier surgeries to match the current physical and aesthetic needs.

What If Your Uneven Breasts Aren’t Caused By A Previous Surgery?

Remember when we mentioned that asymmetrical breasts could be caused by pregnancy, weight loss, weight gain, puberty, or breastfeeding? Can anything be done to correct uneven breasts in these circumstances?


Breast Implants

Breast implants are a popular solution for addressing uneven breasts, offering a way to effectively balance size and shape in one procedure. By carefully selecting the appropriate size, shape, and type of implant for each breast, a skilled surgeon like Dr. Buford can create a symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Implants can provide a significant improvement on both minor and major asymmetries. 

Fat Transfer To Breasts

Fat transfer to the breasts is an innovative procedure for those seeking a natural alternative to implants for correcting uneven breasts. This technique involves harvesting fat from another area of your body, such as the abdomen or thighs, and meticulously injecting it into the breasts to even out volume and enhance shape. Like breast implants, fat transfer is also a two-for-one—it reduces unwanted fat in one area while creating breast symmetry and fullness in another. A fat transfer breast augmentation is ideal for those who require a modest increase in size. If you want a fuller look or need more than one cup size difference to even your breasts, consider breast implants instead.

Breast Lift

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is an excellent surgical option for correcting uneven breasts, particularly when sagging is part of the issue. Over time, factors like gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight changes can cause breasts to lose their youthful shape and firmness, leading to uneven breasts. During a breast lift, Dr. Buford skillfully removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue to raise and reshape the breasts for better symmetry. 


Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, is a condition that can cause significant physical and emotional discomfort for men. It often leads to uneven or overly large breast tissue, which can affect self-esteem and body image. Treatment for gynecomastia typically involves surgical removal of excess fat and glandular tissue to create a flatter, more symmetrical, traditionally masculine chest contour. Dr. Buford specializes in this procedure, employing precision and care to ensure natural-looking results that restore balance and enhance the chest’s appearance. This surgery not only addresses the physical symptoms of gynecomastia but also helps men regain confidence and feel more comfortable in their skin.
