What It Looks Like When Female Breasts Touch In the Middle – Symmastia – Westlake Plastic Surgery

Symmastia – breasts that look like they are touching in the midline of the chest, sometimes called “uni-boob” – are shown on a female patient.

Symmastia refers to breasts that look like they are touching in the midline of the chest. The skin appears to be lifted from the breast bone and the breasts look like one, rather than two (sometimes called a “uni-boob”).

Here’s a detailed article about symmastia written by Dr. Robert Caridi of Westlake Plastic Surgery : https://westlakeplasticsurgery.com/austin-breast-revision-center/symmastia/?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=WPS&utm_content=h0QbpbA3h1Y-description

This condition typically results from surgeon error or the use of implants that are simply too large for the dimensions of your chest.

Symmastia can be left alone, as it is not dangerous. If treatment is preferred, typically the implant capsule is sutured to close off the medial breast pockets. Sometimes ADM, Acellular Dermal Matrix, is used to assist this closure for enhanced support. If excessively large implants are the cause of the problem, it is best to choose smaller implants that actually fit your anatomy.

The use of a special bra with a wire component between the cups, called a ThongBra, can be used afterward to support the repair during the healing process and possibly reduce the chances of recurrence after a revision.
