Breast Anatomy

Overview

Breast shape varies among patients, but knowing and understanding the anatomy of the breast ensures safe surgical planning (see the image below). When the breasts are carefully examined, significant asymmetries are revealed in most patients. Any preexisting asymmetries, spinal curvature, or chest wall deformities must be recognized and demonstrated to the patient, as these may be difficult to correct and can become noticeable in the postoperative period. Preoperative photographs with multiple views are obtained on all patients and maintained as part of the office record.
