Breast asymmetry correction is a procedure that works to rectify congenital breast tissue that causes asymmetric breast development. While breasts normally do not look exactly the same, some patients experience significant uneven breast development which can have a negative effect on their self-esteem and confidence.
Me Clinic offers breast asymmetry correction with the aim of achieving a balanced aesthetic. Like any surgical procedure, the outcomes can vary and it may contribute to self-confidence and comfort levels for some individuals.
Surgical Warning: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

What are the benefits of breast asymmetry correction?
Breast asymmetry correction usually involves an augmentation performed on the smaller breast to align the breasts in size. In other cases, a breast reduction or breast lift procedure might be used with breast implants to create symmetry.
The potential benefits of this procedure could include:
- Increased levels of comfort in clothes
- More confidence in the look of your breasts
- Firmer, fuller breasts that are larger in size
- Even positioning
- An elevated position of the nipple
- Greater upper breast fullness
However, it’s important to note that results can vary.

Am I a suitable candidate for breast asymmetry correction?
It can be quite rare for a woman to have symmetrical breasts and often only those with significant levels of asymmetry look for a surgical solution. It is important to discuss your desired outcome with the team at Me Clinic first.
If you wish to increase the size of your breasts, you may require an implant to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing shape, or you may just require a breast lift to rectify sagging.
Sometimes a combination of the breast augmentation and reduction creates a proportional size and shape. To discern which path is right for you based on your goals, a consultation will be required. Those in good physical shape with realistic expectations may see an improvement; however, it’s important to note that results can vary and improvement may not be seen by all individuals.
What does breast asymmetry correction cost?
The breast asymmetry correction procedure can be quite varied in terms of what is required to achieve the specific goals of each patient. For this reason, your goals need to first be determined during a consultation, so that an exact cost can be provided.
The first step before any surgery is a consultation with the Me Clinic team after which we will provide you with a customised, no-obligation quote. You will then be given time to consider this along with all of the other relevant information about your surgery before making your decision to move forward.
