Working from 6 clinics throughout the London area, Mo will ensure that the best possible results are achieved by identifying the best approach for your individual needs.


There are various factors that can cause breasts to be asymmetric, including:

 Asymmetry from birth (congenital)
 Hormonal changes
 Physical trauma
 As a result of surgery
 An underlying medical or skeletal condition
The good news is that through surgery and with a logical approach, Mr Akhavani can correct the asymmetry, helping you to feel more confident in your body shape and making underwear and clothes more comfortable.

Methods of Breast Asymmetry Correction

There are a variety of ways to correct breast asymmetry through surgery, and the options will be clearly explained to you during your initial appointment. Mr Akhavani will assess your problem and collate details of your medical history before advising on suitability for the procedure and identifying the safest and most effective method.

Ways of correcting breast asymmetry include:

 Enlarging both breasts with different size implants
 Enlarging both breasts with fat grafting
 Reducing the larger breast to match the other side
 Enlarging the smaller breast to match the other side

It may not always be possible to meet all your expectations with surgery, so it’s crucial that you understand what a realistic outcome may be – this will be discussed in full during your consultation.

Breast Asymmetry Surgery and Recovery

In terms of the operation, it’s usually carried out under general anaesthesia as a day case, where you’ll be discharged home on the same day.

You should be able to return to work 2 weeks after surgery, and resume light exercise 6 weeks after the operation and full recovery 3 months after the operation. Mr Akhavani will give you all the details regarding any potential risks and complications during your initial appointment.
