Micromastia (Small Breasts)
Micromastia (or hypomastia, breast hypoplasia) is a medical term that describes (subjectively) small breasts. This definition should be distinguished from “amastia” which literally describes that absence of breast tissue. Because the diagnosis of micromastia is not based on objective criteria, the definition is only applied when the patient perceives a small breast deformity.
“Relative micromastia” has been used to describe the smaller breast when on breast is considerably smaller than the other side. Many women seek breast augmentation as a treatment for their unhappy perception of their small breasts. In fact, breast augmentation is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery year after year.
