Since more or less noticeable breast asymmetry is found in more than 90% of women,<ref name=cossurg/> it is the rule, rather than the exception. Asymmetry can manifest itself in the size of the breast, the position of the nipple and areola, the angle of the breast, and the position of the [[Breast root|breast fold/root]] (where the breast meets the chest). The left breast is on average larger than the right (due to the left breast's proximity to the heart; protective tissue over the heart along with increased vascularity both project the breast outward and increase its growth).<ref name=losken>[http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16327452 ''Losken, A., et al.'': "An objective evaluation of breast symmetry and shape differences using 3-dimensional images"]</ref>
