Breast Asymmetry

Thursday, 07 January 2010

breast asymmetryGenerally, we have no idea how much the right side of our body is different from the left side. Nevertheless, it is a known fact that can be easily proven if you take your picture and process it using any editing software program so that your face was shown, for example, as its left side and its exact mirror image. Then repeat this procedure using the right side of your face. As a result, you get two pictures of two completely different people, who have nothing in common but hair color.

Human body asymmetry is a quite normal phenomenon, especially when we remember that the opposite parts of our body correspond to different brain hemispheres (and, oddly enough, the right hemisphere controls the left side, while the left hemisphere «looks after» the right side), which have quite different «functional responsibilities». In addition, each of us is either right-handed or left-handed, which stimulates better development of muscles on one side of the body. This, in turn, often leads to a slight, almost imperceptible curvature of the spine in the appropriate direction (doctors call this phenomenon a physiological scoliosis), which can be seen if you stand straight and put your both hands at your sides. But in fact it turns out that you will not be quite right: the fingertips of your right hand (if you're right handed) will be somewhat closer to the right knee joint than the fingertips of your left hand - to the left knee joint. However, you shouldn't worry about the body asymmetry. First, as it was noted above, this is a normal phenomenon, common to almost all people, and second, as Chinese wise men say, the closer to the symmetry, the closer to death. However, this philosophical wisdom most likely implies that the absolute symmetry can only be observed in inanimate objects, but the fact remains.

The asymmetry is characteristic not only for different sides of the human body, but for paired body organs as well: the left lung has two lobes, while the right lung has three lobes; the right kidney is located below the left, etc. This is also the case with breasts. Indeed, only one in four women possesses perfectly symmetrical breasts. And this is the official statistics. The majority of women have to some degree asymmetrical breasts. Fortunately, in most cases the asymmetry is not obvious and is hard to perceive. However, there are exceptions, when the difference between the breasts is up to one - two sizes, and sometimes more. Causes of breast asymmetry may be numerous. Doctors suggest that breast size differences are either genetic tendencies or random events in which paired organs like the breasts just grow differentially with respect to starting and stopping. The breasts are stimulated to grow under the influence of estrogen hormone in young girls. It begins with breast budding and about two years after that the first menstrual period occurs. The breast continues to grow for about 2-4 more years and it is during that time that there can be differences in size. Catchup growth does take place but if you are now 21 years old and breast development has gone on more than about 6 years, then it is unlikely to change now until pregnancy or menopause. Those are the other two events that can change size and shape of the breasts.

Besides, this defect can be a result of improper breastfeeding, when the young mother puts her baby to only one breast, and completely ignores the other. This is a big mistake, because the formation of breast milk in the ignored mammary gland is declining sharply, while the opposite gland has an incessant stimulus to its production, which leads to an increase in the gland size. However, as in this case we mean only the glandular hypertrophy, when breastfeeding period is over, the difference between the sizes of the right and left breast gradually wanes and the breasts are restored to their pre-feeding sizes. Things are different, if significant breast asymmetry is caused by the uneven distribution of adipose tissue. Typically, this cosmetic defect is present since birth, but in some cases it may be the result of hormonal imbalances, such as due to uncontrolled use of hormonal drugs. If it is a newly noticed size difference, the first question that should be asked is whether or not there is any solid or cystic growth in one breast that is making it larger than the other. In this case you should consult a doctor in order to be sure that there are no breast masses causing the discrepancy in size.

The three major determinants of breast appearance are size, shape of the individual breast and the position of the breast and nipple when standing in an upright position. If two or more determinants are different you should consider seeking medical help which based on the cause of the pathology will determine the course of treatment. However, in some cases corrective surgery may be needed. Breast asymmetry correction is achieved by breast augmentation or reduction of one or both breasts. Sometimes a surgeon chooses to perform breast augmentation on one breast and breast reduction on another to achieve perfect symmetry.

Surgical breast asymmetry correction is successful in most cases, and women are satisfied with the results. Results of cosmetic breast surgery are usually better when there is only difference in size of the breasts. Some women try to find alternative treatments for breast asymmetry. Although, some companies may offer you medicines or certain substances that are supposed to treat breast asymmetry, you should be aware that there is no other scientifically proven method than surgical breast asymmetry treatment.
