It is quite common for each breast to be slightly different in size, a condition called asymmetry. Breast asymmetry is defined as a difference of form, position or volume of the breast, and it affects more than half of all women. In fact, one study of 100 women who wanted breast augmentation with implants found that 88% had natural asymmetries.

Can most women achieve "ideal" bodies through diet and exercise?
Stuart Linder, MD, Plastic Surgery, answeredThe concept of the ideal body is highly individualized and relative. Each woman has her own perception on what the beautiful and or proportionate body is. Those whom are truly significantly above their ideal body weight may attempt diet and exercise. Unfortunately, both genetics and increased age with hormonal changes may make it impossible to lose excess weight.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
