Asymmetrical breast augmentation is a type of breast augmentation surgery that aims to resolve the balance and symmetry of breasts that are significantly different in shape and/or size. Although many women have breasts that are slightly different, this isn’t usually noticeable. However, for some women, differences can be far more obvious causing distress and can affect both personal and social life.
At Cosmetic Surgery Partners London clinic, our breast augmentation surgeons have a wealth of operating experience. We have the specialist expertise to design an asymmetrical breast augmentation cosmetic surgery plan that addresses specific breast unevenness concerns, whether in shape, size or dimension.
In breast asymmetry, every patient case is unique, asymmetrical breast augmentation surgery aims to surgically correct the imbalance and match the size and shape of the breasts as closely as possible. This may involve a combination of breast implant surgery and other specialist techniques designed to even the appearance of the patient’s breasts. Surgery and consultation can be had from the same location, at our state-of-the-art breast augmentation clinic in London.
Our surgeons address size inequality through different volume breast implants. This follows the principles and procedures of breast augmentation surgery, using superior quality teardrop cohesive silicone gel breast implants. As part of the breast augmentation cosmetic surgery we offer, we can also reduce the size of a breast to match a smaller breast (via breast reduction surgery).
Differences in nipple height and the diameter of the areola (the darker skin immediately surrounding the nipple) can also be addressed during surgery. At Cosmetic Surgery Partners London Clinic, our breast augmentation surgeons can also combine surgical methods to create a more symmetrical look including breast uplift surgery (also known as mastopexy). This advanced procedure is effective in reshaping breasts making dimensions more uniform.
Our London clinic is home to industry-leading breast augmentation cosmetic surgeons, who specialise solely in breast surgery. They have pioneered and developed a number of techniques including glandular slide-vertical scar for breast reduction and Anti-Biotic Breast Augmentation (ABBA) for that are now industry standards in cosmetic surgery.

At Cosmetic Surgery Partners, we do not admit patients under the age of 18. As the body is still developing during the teen years, we believe it’s better not to operate on patients until their body reaches full maturity.
The size and shape of the breast implant is determined very much by what kind of end result the patient would like to see. During your initial consultation from our breast augmentation surgery clinic, you will able to have a frank and open discussion about what your expectations would be. Our surgeons will be able to advise you on what breast implant size and shape will be best suited for you. Generally, there are two types of shape which are suitable for different results; round and tear drop and they come in various different sizes.
Above all, our breast augmentation surgeons pride themselves on being able to produce natural looking results that are hard to detect. So, you can rest assured that the end result will look flattering to your body shape and will keep people guessing.
At Cosmetic Surgery Partners, we use Nagor brand breast implants. They carry a lifetime guarantee against rupturing and are available in various sizes and profiles. The added benefit of Nagor implants is they carry the CE mark of approval. This means they are deemed safe by European standards, it also guarantees that the implants have been tested not to interfere with hospital equipment, particularly life-saving apparatus.
Yes, there are cases where our breast augmentation surgeon will see patients who’ve been fitted with the wrong type of implant, or had implants inserted to produce a less flattering and unnatural result. In some cases, we’ve helped patients who have been fitted with an un-reputable or even dangerous brand of breast enlargement implant, such as the PIP breast implant. In all cases, our surgeons are able to remove or replace the existing implant and are able to produce a result that is natural looking and flattering to the shape of your body. Some patients we see simply would like to replace their existing breast implants for a larger or smaller size. For more information, please see our page about breast implants exchange
Yes. Some patients we see are not interested in breast enlargement, they simply want to restore normality by addressing their uneven breast sizes. Our surgeons have helped hundreds of patients address their uneven breasts by means of breast implants. Please read more information on asymmetrical breast augmentation.

Probably not, our breast augmentation surgeons are experts at producing natural looking results that are hard to detect. Scars are kept minimal by making small incisions on places of the body that are hardly visible.
The healing process is different for every patient, however we find on average most people are able to make a full recovery and restore all normal activities some 6 weeks after surgery.
Although it is difficult to say exactly how much time you need to book from work following your operation, we find that most patients can benefit from 1-2 weeks of proper rest at home. Although you will not be bed bound during this time, it is very important you refrain from any strenuous activities such as gym and exercise during this initial healing period.
There is growing concern about the topic of Breast Implant Associated - Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). It should be noted that this very rare condition is a lymphoma and not cancer of the breast tissue. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) currently advises implants are still regarded as safe for use in augmentation and reconstruction operations. The MHRA does not suggest a change in practice with the current data available.
