What does Breast Asymmetry treatment involve?

There a various different ways to treat breast asymmetry. If one breast is noticeably larger than the other, a consultant may recommend a unilateral breast reduction in order to even up the breasts.

A consultant will be able to offer advice on the best option for you personally.
