Breast asymmetry in a 22 year old
I wish you well !
If you wish to surgically improve your appearance than you first of all need to decide on whether you are happy with the size of the left breast.
If your decision is yes then you would need to reduce the right breast to create size symmetry. The size of the left could be reduced with liposuction or a breast reduction or a combination of both. A breast reduction could be performed through a scar around the areolar +/- vertical scar +/- a scar under the breast. It is difficult to tell from the photos, as the photo is rotated, but I would favour a breast reduction + periareolar + vertical scar +/- scar under the breast.
If your decision is to increase size on the left it is possible to place two different shaped and sized implants to improve the size asymmetry. However you would have to accept that the shapes would be different and you may well end up choosing to have a mastopexy (probably periareolar) as a second stage. If you wish to have an increased in volume on the left and a one stage asymmetry correction then you would need a breast augmentation on the left and a mastopexy implant on the right. In this scenario you would most likely be able to have a mastopexy through only a periareolar scar alone without a vertical scar or scar under the breast.
The final option is to perform a unilateral reduction on the right and then consider bilateral breast augmentation as a second stage.
There are many options and you should consult with a PS with experience in all these areas.

One sided breast lift can help correct asymmetrical breasts
A unilateral mastopexy or lift with some reduction on the larger right breast can help achieve symmetry with the left side. If you want your left breast larger then a breast augmentation on the left and a simple lift without reduction on the right should be possible. Be sure to choose a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in breast surgery, and who has an excellent reputation in your community.
Breast asymmetry is not uncommon. In fact, most women have some asymmetry. Several things can cause asymmetric breast enlargement such a one breast being more responsive to hormones or benign tumors, so make sure your do a good breast self-exam. Barring any abnormalities on exam, I would suggest a small volume reduction. As mentioned, the name of the lift is not as important as the skill and aesthetic judgment of the surgeon doing the procedure. With that said, I would avoid a strictly periareolar approach. I know you may want to avoid the vertical scar, but it is the most reliable way to reduce the base diameter of the best. I hope this helps.

Could consider lifting and reducing one side or SAFELipo-only reduction
A natural way to fix this is to fat graft the breast with the USE of BRAVA!
