Breast asymmetry is a common condition among women. It occurs when one breast is larger than the other. In most cases, the size difference between the two breasts may be so subtle that it isn’t noticeable to anyone other than the patient. In more severe cases, however, when one breast is a full cup size or more different in size than the other, a corrective breast surgery may be necessary. Depending on the complexity of the case and the aesthetic goals of the patient, a number of procedures may be considered, including breast augmentation, a breast lift, or breast reduction. The goal is to create a symmetrical, natural appearance. Women can have breast asymmetry that is congenital or it can be noticed after previous breast augmentation surgery.
"I had a procedure done over 13 years ago. I still feel and look great! He is sensitive professional and knows what he’s doing. Will go back and refer him to as many people as I know."- J.F. / Google / May 05, 2018
"This review is about Lalena and her very smart assistance. I had Body Tite done by another doctor and was left with 4 noticeable scars. Lalena was the ONLY person who knew how to address these scars. Thank you Lalena for being so smart, kind, and taking the time to listen to my concerns."- E.M. / Yelp / Sep 04, 2020

"I don’t even know where to begin. Doing breast augmentation with Dr. Gray is the best decision I have ever made. The confidence I have gained was unimaginable.Dr. Gray is extremely intelligent and goes through all of your options with great detail. He is thorough and takes the time to answer questions. I am 5’5" 120lbs and was a 32A. I wanted big enough boobs so people noticed, but not too big and end up looking top-heavy. Dr. Gray did 475cc (Mentor HP) and now I am a 34D and I am in love with the results!!! The consent was for anywhere from 400cc-500cc and he could not have done a better job at selecting the appropriate size for me. Of course he will go over all of this with you and explain why he leaves wiggle room on the consent. (Like I said, he is extremely intelligent and there’s a reason why he does the things the way he does, just listen to him!) It’s not like he’s just trying to pump you with as much as he can.. My boobs are totally proportionate with the rest of my body and they are the perfect size for me. The facility itself is beautiful. His office, pre-op, OR, and recovery room are all in the same suite, making it convenient and easy. The view from the OR is incredible and relaxing. Dr. Gray offers FREE consultations, unlike most plastic surgeons offices, but I believe it’s because he is so confident in his work that you will feel it too and book your surgery with him. I booked my surgery immediately after my consultation, and my biggest regret is not getting it done sooner!! Thank you so so so so much Dr. Gray and Cherisse!"- D.H. / Yelp / Sep 02, 2020
"I loved my experience with Dr. Gray and his staff, I Highly recommend going here. Doctor Gray is very knowledgeable and will answer any questions or concerns you may have... coming from someone who has major anxiety, the whole staff was understanding and helpful throughout my surgery and recovery process. I will definitely be coming back for any other procedures I am interested in doing. Thanks again Team!"- J.K. / Yelp / Sep 01, 2020
Asymmetry in Shape & Volume
Almost all women have asymmetry in their breast shape and breast volume. If the asymmetry is very mild, then the same implant can be used on both sides. Some women have a much larger breast on one side, those patients, most often times, need a larger implant on the smaller side to provide balance. Sometimes there are differences in projection. In this case, a flatter breast may need a more projecting implant and a more projecting breast may need a flatter implant. Also, some women have droopiness or ptosis on one side compared to the other. If this is significant, they may need a lift to create a more balanced appearance. In general, every woman in seen as an individual. No two asymmetry cases are the same. We go through a process of problem solving to determine the best way to correct a woman’s asymmetry.
Congenital asymmetry can be improved by using implants of a different size and sometimes a different projection. If there is a small difference from side to side, then a small change in volume can be all that is needed. If there is a large difference in size and projection then implants of different projections can be used. For example, a moderate profile implant can be used on one side that is more projecting, and a high profile implant on the other side that is flatter. It is always important to keep the widths of the implants similar so that both sides will look the most symmetric
Asymmetry Following Breast Aug
Asymmetry following breast augmentation can be due to many factors including over settling, not enough settling, incomplete dissection or over dissection, capsular contracture (breast hardness), and others. At the time of the consultation, Dr. Gray takes the time to diagnose the cause of the problem. Since there is no “cookie cutter” solution for asymmetry of the breast, Dr. Gray studies each case in detail to find the very best solution.
