What is the best procedure for my uneven breasts? (Photo)

Thanks for your question.
The best procedure really depends on your goals. A straightforward breast augmentation with silicone breast implants may be enough to address the difference in size between your breasts. The left breast may require a lift if you want the shape of the breasts to be more similar. You do have some drooping of your nipple. Often an breast implant or breast lift can correct this.

Breast asymmetry treatment options
You present with breast ptosis on the left and a relatively normal postpartum breast on the right. The right nipple has some redundant lower areola as a result of decreased volume of the breast.
I would recommend:
Right breast: Submuscular saline implant. This will correct the nipple drooping.
Left breast: Submuscular saline implant and circumareolar mastopexy (repair hidden around the areola).
Salne implants have the advantage of volume adjustability during surgery and even after surgery. I perform a local procedure in the office for saline implant volume changes. This is crucial in addressing not only the difference in size but also the difference in the procedures done on each side and healing as such.
Always find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to care for you.
It appears from your photos that you would probably get the best result from a lift[at least on the Left side] and implants to give you some upper fullness.
The right nipple/areola issue would probably be improved by the same procedures.
I would recommend that you see an experienced Surgeon Certified by The American Board Of Plastic Surgery[ABPS] and a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) for a consult.

All the best,
Now with CC size, when you do your consultation your BSPS should take your measurements and have you try on some implants to see which size you like the best. After finding what you like he/she would choose an implant that would best fit your frame for the CC chosen.
It is common after nursing to be a bit more asymmetrical and this can be corrected to the best outcome with either a larger implant on one side, a lift on one side or a mix of the two. Your BSPS will give you his or her recommendations to give you the best possible outcome.
As for your nipple, I am unsure as to what you are referring to. Is it the slight amount of creasing on the lower part of your areola? During your in person consultation be sure to point this out and explain what it used to look like before. There are many nipple correction procedures.
I wish you the best of luck and I hope this helped!
