What Causes Uneven Breasts?

shutterstock_650372764It may surprise you, but 25 percent of women have breasts that are different sizes. The difference between their breasts may be slight or significant, but this common problem is causing some women to seek out the natural breast augmentation procedure performed by Dr. Johnson.

What Causes Uneven Breasts?

Researchers have not pinpointed a definitive reason breasts develop to be different sizes, but some theories include:

Natural Growth. Natural growth means that your breasts just developed into different sizes naturally. Not everything on your body is perfectly symmetrical. Your eyes could be a little uneven, your ears may be shaped differently or one of your legs may be a bit longer than the other (but don’t rush to the mirror looking for flaws!). It just happens as a normal part of growth. In this instance, Dr. Johnson can perform natural breast augmentation by taking fat from one area of your body to fill out one or both breasts to make them the same size.

Hormonal Changes. Hormonal changes brought on by puberty can cause one breast to grow larger than the other. Typically, the breasts even out after puberty, but this is not the case for all women.

The hormonal changes of pregnancy and breastfeeding also impact the breasts, causing many women to end up with breasts that are uneven. Fat transfers are also beneficial for women with this kind of breast asymmetry.

Medical Conditions. Conditions like scoliosis, or curvature of the spine, can make the breasts appear to be different in size. Another medical condition known as hypertrophy of the breast can cause one breast to grow noticeably larger than the other. Tuberous breast syndrome is a medical condition that also impacts the breasts, causing them to develop into a tube-like shape.

Natural breast augmentation can benefit women with these medical conditions by filling out the breasts to achieve symmetry or a more natural shape.

The natural breast augmentation procedure is also an excellent option for women whose breasts have changed due to weight loss or aging.
