Implant Malposition

Breast asymmetry after breast augmentation is common.  In many circumstances breast asymmetry before breast augmentation causes a necessary degree of asymmetry after breast augmentation.  During a thorough consultation with Dr. Yates areas of breast asymmetry will be pointed out and options to improve asymmetry will be discussed.

One fairly common cause of breast asymmetry after breast augmentation is breast implant malposition.  This can occur from problems with the early healing process or imprecise breast implant pocket creation at the time of surgery.  If the asymmetry is significant enough it can require a revision surgery.
