Will A Crescent Breast Lift Correct My Breast Asymmetry After Getting Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley I had breast augmentation last year but my right breast is doesn’t look like left one, my right nipple 1 cm lower then left one, I just wondered that can we do crescent breast lifting for my right breast lower nipple. Because I don’t want big scars. 

A :It is important to remember that all breast implants do is take one’s natural breasts and make them bigger. Thus asymmetries like yours (horizontal nipple level differences) after breast augmentation are usually what the breasts looked like before the surgery…but often not noticed because the breasts were smaller and the difference between them less as a result. The corrective approach, as you have noted, is a superior areolar crescent lift.
