My left breast is smaller than my right breast. What do you think is the best procedure I should take to even them out?

Thank you for your question. Breast Asymmetry is common, to varying degrees. If you have drastic asymmetry, two different size/profile implants may be placed or a lift may be appropriate. You will need to meet with a Plastic Surgeon in person so that they can examine you and provide options. Be sure to seek a board certified Plastic Surgeon.
All the best

Correction of Asymmetric Breasts
The correction of breast asymmetry depends on the reason(s) for the asymmetry:
- constriction (i.e. Tuberous breasts)
- size difference
- nipple and or areola difference
- a COMBINATION of all of the above
Breast sagging is corrected with a lift.
A large size difference is corrected with a Breast Lift in which the larger side is somewhat reduced
if the breasts are constricted and small, this is usually corrected with a Breast Augmentation in which the constrictive bands are released at the same time.
The best course of action is for you to pick a surgeon who is a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS. WwwPlasticSurgeryorg). This assures you that he/she is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and that he/she has hospital privileges in case something goes wrong. Research them online. Read their Google and RealSelf reviews.
Go in for a consultation with 1-3 of such surgeons and see how you are treated and pick the one you like the most.
