WHAT IS SYMMASTIA?
To put it simply, symmastia is when your breasts grow together and have little or no cleavage between them. There is typically a web of skin, fat and tissue that will form across the cleavage. Depending on the severity of the issue, it may or not be noticeable.
There are two types of symmastia that can occur, and they are congenital and acquired (iatrogenic). In some instances, you can be born with this condition, although it is rare. Acquired symmastia is the more common type and can be a side effect of breast augmentation work you may have had done in the past. It typically occurs when breast implants are too close together or if there has been any accidental cutting during the augmentation procedure.
Luckily, symmastia normally doesn’t cause any serious health concerns, but most women like to have this procedure administered for cosmetic reasons. With this surgery, we will reattach skin to the breastbone to restructure your cleavage and a new pocket may also need to be made to hold any implants correctly.
If you feel you may be a candidate for symastia correction, we ask that you reach out to Bergman Plastic Surgery at your earliest convenience for a consultation; it will be our pleasure to correct any issues you may be experiencing.
