Shelby has bravely come to The Doctors to share a medical issue that she says is affecting her self-esteem, her asymmetrical breasts.
She tells us that one breast is an A cup and the other is a D cup. This has caused her to be very insecure about her body and feel like she has to hide it. She also says finding the right bra and bathing suit is challenging. Shelby wears a gel insert on the smaller side to balance out the size difference. She tells us that her husband is “100 supportive,” but she still prefers to keep the lights off and her shirt on while having sex.
“Why am I like this? What can I do? I just want to look and feel normal,” she says.
Breast specialist Dr. Kristi Funk has Shelby undergo a bilateral mammogram, an ultrasound and a full blood work panel (including genetic testing). Geneticist Dr. Valerie Watiker also reviewed Shelby's test results and they believe she has Poland Syndrome, which a rare condition that leads to the muscles system on one side of the body being underdeveloped or not developing at all.
Dr. Watiker stresses that Poland Syndrome is not a deadly condition and Dr. Funk also shares that no signs of any cancer or mass in either of her breasts were found.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon shares that he feels Shelby makes a great candidate for a reduction of one breast and an enlargement of the other to make them symmetrical. We are happy to surprise Shelby with the news that plastic surgeon Dr. Michael R. Burgdorf and the team from the Cool Springs Surgery Center has offered her a breast makeover, at no cost to her.
