Breast Augmentation with Mini Ultimate Breast Lift(TM)
Your breasts show asymmetrical volume, shape and
position. I recommend a new technique
called Breast Augmentation with Mini Ultimate Breast LiftTM. Using only a circumareola incision it is
possible to reshape your breast tissue creating upper pole fullness, elevate
them higher on the chest wall and more medial to increase your cleavage. Through the same incision, implants can be
placed. Aligning the areola, breast
tissue and implant over the bony prominence of the chest wall maximizes anterior
projection with a minimal size implant.
Small round textured silicone gel implants placed retro-pectoral look
and feel more natural, are more stable, less likely to ripple or have
complications needing revision. Implant
profile is irrelevant in the retro-pectoral position since the muscle

Breast lift needed?
The general rule of thumb is that if the nipples sit below the
inframammary fold (the crease under the breast), then a lift is recommended.
However, there are several other anatomic factors of the breast as well
as the patient's desires and expectations that further determine whether a lift
is performed or not with or without an implant. In general it is always best to
fit the implant with the patients breast anatomic dimensions thus minimizing
immediate as well as long term complications. In a case with your asymmetry, I typically reduce (and lift) the larger side to match the smaller side. This allows me to use the same size implants in both sides and thus a produces a more symmetric end result. Glad to help.
One sided breast lift plus implants was necessary for symmetry
Thank you for your question and photogtaph.Your right breast perfectly normal and pretty. Your breast on the left side is also very normal and pretty however it is larger and lower than the right side.
If you want symmetrical breasts that look like then you will need a minor breast lift on the left side and bilateral breast augmentation. If you choose a surgeon who is very experienced you should have a beautiful result. Please consult the plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, very experienced and breast surgery, and who has an excellent reputation in York community.
Do I need a minor breast lift with augmentation?
I think that if you want better symmetry for the breasts, different sized implants or differential fat grafting amounts along with differing lifts may be appropriate.

I think you need an augmentation mastopexy
HI southernboobies. What are your goals? Is your left breast just longer than your right, or is the volume larger also? I think you would do well with bilateral submuscular breast augmentation, with bilateral periareolar mastopexies (the amount of lift would need to be greater on the left, of course). From your picture, I am not sure how fat grafting will improve your nipple asymmetry, but If I examined you, I probably would agree with your plastic surgeon.
There are few different options
You have uneven breast shape and size. You did not state your expectations.If you desire more even breast shape and size, I would recommend fat grafting to even out the size(more fat to the right breast) and left breast lift to even out the shape. If you desire much larger breast I would do the lift and fat first and implants or fat grafting 3 months later.
