What is Breast Asymmetry?
Women with breast asymmetry have breasts that are different in shape, position or size. In fact, the great majority of women have mild breast asymmetry. However, when the asymmetry is significant, it may adversely affect the woman’s body image, her self-esteem and confidence.
Breast asymmetry can be classified into three types:
- Anisomastia: a significant difference in the volume and size of the breasts.
- Anisothelia: a difference between the nipples and areolas.
- Combined asymmetry: anisomastia and anisothelia.
