BREAST ASYMMETRY & TUBEROUS BREAST CORRECTION
Uneven breasts are very common. Dr. Wendel performs breast asymmetry correction using combinations of breast augmentation, breast lift with or without implants, and/or breast reduction to restore size, shape and symmetry to uneven breasts. Tuberous breasts, sometimes called tubular breasts, is a congenital breast condition that may be mild or severe. It occurs in both men and women and can involve one or both breasts. The condition is not uncommon, affecting about 5% of the population. Plastic surgical correction may involve breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction or a combination of these surgical procedures.

A SOLUTION FOR BREAST ASYMMETRY
Do you have uneven breasts? Are you embarrassed that your breasts are different sizes or have different shapes? Is it difficult for you to find bras or bathing suits that fit? If so, you might be a good candidate for breast asymmetry correction.
Uneven breasts typically develop during puberty and may get worse as a women’s breasts change with age, pregnancy or changes in weight. To correct uneven breasts, plastic surgery is often necessary.
Breast symmetry surgery may involve breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction or a combination of these approaches. The smaller breast can be made bigger with a breast implant to match the larger one, or the larger breast can be lifted and reduced to match the smaller one. Sometimes, plastic surgery on both breasts is needed.
Dr. Wendel will carefully go over all your options to see what might be right for you. It is common for women to have their breasts redone later in life, especially after having children. Women’s breasts change over time. Long term, the reoccurrence of uneven breasts is often the rule and not the exception.

TUBEROUS BREAST SURGERY
Dr. Wendel will perform the surgery in Nashville, TN using anesthesia in a fully accredited surgical facility. Surgery is expected to take 1-3 hours and is usually an outpatient procedure. Drainage tubes are not typically necessary.
Tuberous Breast Surgery may involve minimal or several incisions on one or both breasts. The herniated nipple areola complex can be made smaller and repositioned on the breast if needed. Breast implants can be used to add volume and shape to smaller breasts if desired.
Following the surgery, Dr. Wendel will go over your recovery instructions with you, in order to minimize any discomfort.
