Nipple asymmetry breast augmentation Northern Virginia photos

High-low variations in areolar positions and nipple asymmetry can range from subtle to dramatic discrepancies. The subtle variations in nipple asymmetry may go unnoticed until after the breast implants have been placed. The high low variations in nipple asymmetry can be magnified after breast augmentation. It is important to note this variation beforehand so the expectation level can be adjusted. Realistic expectations yield the happiest women. Sometimes nipple asymmetry is combined with inframammary fold asymmetries as well.

Nipple misdirection

Another type of implant asymmetry involves the position of the nipple on the breast mound. Ideally, the nipple areolar complex should be near the most projecting point of the breast implant, and on the breast mound. A breast implant size should be selected to assure that this occurs. If a breast implant is malpositioned or the woman’s breast skin and gland are large, the nipple may not be in a correct position. When the implant has settled in different positions on the different sides, the nipples may point in different directions. This can be disturbing to the woman and serve as an indication for a secondary plastic surgery.

It is normal for a woman’s nipples to be at different levels. As long as it is identified before the breast augmentation, the woman is usually very pleased with her result. This is because she has realistic expectations for her breast augmentation.

This is a more pronounced areolar position high and low asymmetry. She also has breast inframammary fold and breast glandular asymmetries, as well as translucent skin. Her veins seem to be slightly more noticeable in her after breast augmentation views.

This woman has had a few pregnancies and breast feeding experiences. Note how her natural breast shapes and tendencies persist after her breast augmentation. She remains with the modest nipple asymmetry.

She has a nice improvement that is seen on her after breast augmentation photos. Her before photo is slightly rotated and suboptimal, but it does demonstrate the high and low nipple position asymmetry.

This young woman’s natural shape influences her after breast augmentation look. Note how her left nipple and breast is positioned just a bit lower that her right breast. Her breast implants have restored her volume and improved her aesthetic.

This woman has a history that includes breast feeding. Note how her natural breast shapes and tendencies persist after her breast augmentation. Also note how her breast implants significantly improve her breast shape and nipple positions.
