Different Sized Breast Senarios
It is not uncommon for Dr. Lanzer to see patients who have different sized breasts on both sides. There is a genetic tendency for 2 sides of the breasts to be different. Sometimes it is a different shape and the breasts actually start at a different level. At other times, one can just be much larger, having much more breast tissue and much more fat.
Occasionally, the nipple is also different and at a different height. Wherever possible, Dr. Lanzer tries to offer liposuction of the larger breast in order to even out the 2 sides. The alternative approach would be surgical mammoplasty which is usually performed by a plastic surgeon. Plastic surgery in this area is always associated with some scarring.
The scarring on the chest and the front of the legs are two areas that do not always heal well. It is always great if the surgeon can keep the scars small or minimal. Using tumescent liposuction, the entire procedure is usually done between 1 to 2 small keyhole nicks.
Cosmetic Surgeon Approaches
In fact, most cosmetic surgeons and plastic surgeons know that the 2 sides of our body are different. The classic statement is that our 2 sides are sisters and not twins. This is particularly seen in face lift surgery where one cheek may be lower or have more drooping. It may be related to muscle or bony differences and sometimes even skin differences.
Dr. Lanzer also sees it often with the eyes and usually points out to patients that one eye may be a different shape or different height. Most patients do not actually notice this and certainly friends do not usually notice it. However, it is important for a surgeon to point this out to patients so they do not think that it has happened from the surgery. Sometimes, Dr. Lanzer finds that the 2 sides of the body are different because there is scoliosis or bending of the spine.
This may cause hips or outer thighs to project in one direction. This gives the illusion that the 2 sides are different. In this case, it is more a structural bony issue rather than removing more fat from one side. Other causes of asymmetry can be scars, such as from an appendix which causes the fat to push out in different directions. Cosmetic surgeons are trained to have an eye that picks up slight asymmetry, and therefore they can offer treatments that are appropriate. A cosmetic surgeon causes differences on the 2 sides by looking at angles and shadows.
There are certain vectors that can be seen and the doctor will often turn the patient from side to side which will help analyse the different directions and shaping. Photography is sometimes of an assistance in helping define the differences of the 2 sides. It is certainly important to do that so that the patients can have a good record and see how things have changed.
