Breast Asymmetry Atlanta

Genetics & Lifestyle

Asymmetry of the breast is best defined as noticeable differences in breast size, breast shape, imbalance between the breasts, nipple/areola size and a height, variation in inframammary creases and overall contour of the breast. The larger the breast (more volume), the greater often are the differences. Breast asymmetry may be related to genetics and may have developed during puberty or due to life events such as: normal aging and hormonal changes, pregnancy and breast feeding, weight changes, accident or injury causing trauma to the breast, or diseases like scoliosis of the spine. Breast asymmetry causes challenges such as finding bras that fit comfortably, looking good in your clothing, being able to participate in sports or to workout in a gym without embarrassment. Dr. Rudderman is specialized in many surgeries of the breast and can perform the artistically demanding and rewarding surgeries that correct these problems.

Regardless of the causes…breast changes are unpredictable, unavoidable, bothersome, embarrassing & problematic.

Dr. Rudderman is one of Atlanta’s surgeons of choice. He is specialized in many complicated problems of the breast & he employs delicate, advanced techniques to achieve the most natural looking results possible.

Breast Reduction

Means “subtraction” of breast volume…reducing it in size to create symmetry and balance..

Lifting & Tightening

Involves lifting the breast to a higher position and tightening muscles.

Nipple / Areolar Adjustment / Movement

  • Dr. Rudderman and his staff made the experience easy and comfortable. They were realistic communicating surgery expectations, expected pain levels and down time from work. Nurses were informative and friendly and wait times minimal. I also liked the fact that Dr. Rudderman does all his own work and doesn't let other less experienced people do parts of the surgery the way other doctors may. I'm only one week out of the surgery, but I am very satisfied with the results so far.
