it is not rare to have asymmetric breasts.The only way to correct it is surgical.You have to make sure that your board certified plastic surgeon has experience with gynecomastia surgery.
Without a physical exam, it is hard to tell how much of your gynecomastia is true gynecomastia (breast ducts) and how much is pseudo-gynecomastia (fat on the chest). All of your pseudo- and some of your true-gynecomastia can be liposuctioned through a very small incision. If there is residual gland at the end of the liposuction, then an excision of that gland tissue needs to be done. The outcome of this surgery should be 100% successful. To that end, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience with this sort of male breast issue.
