While it may seem as if breasts would come in a matching set, the truth is that they don't. Most people have breasts that are slightly different in size. However, sometimes they are so close in size that this size difference can be hard to detect. In most cases, it is noticeable with enough inspection. There are some cases, though, where the asymmetry of the breasts is significant enough that it is quite noticeable. The content here covers how asymmetry can affect someone, what can be done about it, and what benefits there are to correcting the asymmetry.
How severe asymmetry of the breasts can affect a person
When someone has asymmetry of the breasts to the point where it is immediately noticed when they remove their bra, they can become extremely uncomfortable and self-conscious about anyone seeing them without their top portion covered. This can affect relationships the person is in because it can cause problems between them and their partner. The partner can feel as if the person with asymmetry doesn't have any trust in them if they have to hide a part of themselves. The person with asymmetry can end up feeling pressured and misunderstood. Things like this can cause more problems to come to the surface and the relationship can soon become unhealthy for both partners.
When someone has asymmetry to the point that it affects the way they fit into clothing and it is noticeable while fully clothed, they can struggle in many areas. They can have a very hard time finding clothing, including bras, bathing suits, dresses, and tops. They may have to resort to always wearing an insert on one side of their bras, and this can be frustrating and it can be uncomfortable. They can also still have the same insecurities as the type of person described above. Plus, they have the added worries over trying to find clothes that both fit them and help to conceal their issue.
What can be done about asymmetry
There are two permanent solutions to correct someone's asymmetry. One is a breast reduction, in which the larger breast will be reduced to closer match the size of the smaller one. The other solution is to have breast augmentation to make the smaller breast become larger to match the size of the bigger one.
When someone chooses breast augmentation, they can also choose to have both of their breasts enlarged. The one that's naturally smaller will have a larger implant put in, so the end result will be two larger breasts that are very close in size. Also, the breasts can even be lifted at the same time. Many people opt to go with breast augmentation.
Some benefits of correcting asymmetry
Once someone with asymmetry finally is able to get breasts that are very close in size, they will become much more confidant, they may suddenly have a lot of fun shopping for clothes, they can find themselves being more sociable, and they can feel as if they have a new lease on life.
