Liposuction & Fat Transfer to Breast
32yr old, with breast asymmetry, right breast being smaller and sitting higher. The aim of the lipo -sculpture (liposuction and fat transfer) was to better balance the position of the breasts on the chest wall and add volume to both. Transferred 190ml to the left and 240g fat to the right breast.
All paired structures in the body have some form of asymmetry including the breast. These differences can include some of the following:
- 1. Chest wall/rib cage shape – this will determine the way your breast projects i.e. directly forwards, outwards or rarely inwards.
- 2. Breast volume – slight variation between sides is completely normal.
- 3. Nipple position on the breast, its height (measured from the notch between the collar bones to the nipple), the nipple distance from the midline and from the fold under the breast.
- 4. Height of the fold under the breast
