I have one breast that is much more larger than the other. Is it possible to have a Breast Reduction where only one breast is reduced and the other breast is left totally alone without any surgery to it?
Yes, that can be done. Asymmetry between the breasts can be corrected by a breast reduction on one side. This is done either for cosmetic patients or reconstructive patients after partial mastectomy on the other side.
Other options include a lift on one side, and an implant on the other, or any combination.
If there is only minimal droop the breast might be reduced by liposuction alone. If there is a degree of ptosis (droop or sag), then skin tightening is done by shaping with either a T shaped incision or a vertical "lollipop" type of incision.
