For the majority of women, there is a natural space between the right and left breast. This space creates a separation between the two breasts, so that they may both be defined as separate mounds. More importantly, it also defines the cleavage. Regardless of the size of your breast implants, it is important that this space remains for a more natural appearance.
However, if you notice that the space between your breasts has disappeared following your breast augmentation or the skin in the area is raised to a certain extent, then you have developed symmastia (a condition that can also exist congenitally). Informally referred to as “breadloafing”, symmastia is a very rare risk of breast augmentation that can occur due to improper implant placement probably caused by one or more of the following:
Breast augmentation patients with chest wall abnormalities are also at a higher risk of developing symmastia.
Symmastia, aka Uni-Boob or Breadloafing: Breasts that appear as if joined together in the middle.
The severity of symmastia varies, and it often causes the nipple/areola to appear off to the side of each breast. The condition can be safely corrected with surgery, but of course preventing it from occurring in the first place is always best.
