What Does It Involve?

Breast asymmetry can be a congenital issue or acquired.  Congenital issues include unilateral underdevelopment, accessory nipples, and in some cases, the difference is related to a congenital syndrome known as Poland Syndrome.  Poland Syndrome comprises of a range of issues and in the more serious cases, may involve having hand deformity and cardiac problem.


Breast asymmetry can ranged from very minor to gross asymmetry involving volume, shape, nipple position and sometimes, underlying rib cage asymmetry. There are multiple techniques including volume replacement, contour re-shaping that can help to improve the asymmetry. Mr Ho-Asjoe can advise on the most appropriate treatment after consultation and examination.


Breast asymmetry is extremely common and probably around 95% of females have some degree of difference between the two breasts.  The asymmetry can be related to shapes, nipple height, volume and in some cases, there are issues such as breast constriction, specific areas of tissue deficit, over-projection of nipple areola complex (Herniation). For most females, this is not an issue but for those with 1 or more cup size difference between the two sides, finding bras that are suitable, going swimming or undressing can become an issue.


The techniques used for the correction of breast asymmetry, the cost of the surgery are both variable as surgery should be tailored to each individual patient.  Some techniques will involve more scarring, some techniques can improve the volume but not necessarily the shape and the symmetry will change with aging and gravitational pull.  Mr. Ho-Asjoe has specialized in breast reconstructive surgery and can explain the options after consultation and examination.

After Surgery

After surgery, the patient is advised to wear a sports bra with no underwire or lateral push for six weeks.  No active physical work, weight lift, running.



I am very satisfied as Mr Ho-Asjoe is very patient and takes the time to consider what’s best for the patient, respecting their needs, unlike other doctors I have seen. I have had a great experience and would happily refer friends and family to him.


Doctor Mark is one of the best surgeon. Can’t complain about the result, simply perfect.


Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe did my tummy tuck on the 13/4/17. Before surgery he explained the procedure and showed me pictures of surgeries he undertook. He clearly informed that i may have scarring after the operation, however I am please with the result. After the surgery Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe reassured me that if there were any problems I should contact him immediately any time of the day, which i found reassuring and alleviated any anxieties i may have had. The after care received was top notch and will definitely use him again for any future operation(s).


Mark is the consummate professional and will never entertain any unnecessary surgery. He is kind and considerate and listens. His skills are second to non and attention to detail, perfect. A wonderful experience which you can rarely say when having surgery.
