Abstract

Constitutional breast asymmetries are responsible not only for esthetic unsightliness, but also, at times, for psychological disorders, and medical management is necessitated. While surgical treatment is the only viable therapeutic option, given the wide variety of morphological presentations of mammary asymmetries, the surgeon is called upon to be well versed in breast surgery techniques. The authors have put forward a classification of mammary asymmetries and principles of treatment. Copyright © 2022 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
