Crescent Lift with Breast Augmentation?
You are starting from a difficult place and achieving an attractive long lasting outcome may take more work than you imagine. Not only are your breasts asymmetric in terms of size, position, and areolar diameter, but they are positioned very far lateral on your chest wall with quite a wide space between your breasts. In addition, you have a good deal of excess lateral fullness in your right breast which will likely become more noticeable with just an augmentation. For you the question will be how much you are willing to do to achieve the best possible outcome.
My recommendation would be to have a smaller version of a full or anchor type lift with the goal being not only to elevate your nipple and breast tissue (particularly on the right), but to move your breast tissue more medial to achieve a better breast shape, narrow the wide space between your breasts, and reduce the size of your areola. Once a better breast shape and position has been established you can go ahead with an augmentation at a second stage and have a greater range of implant choices. Be aware that high profile implants are generally a poor choice in patients with a wide space between their breasts because they tend to accentuate that problem.

From the photo you provided I would recommend at least a peri-areolar lift or a lollipop lift in order to get symmetry. A crescent lift will not be enough to correct the asymmetry. I think you will be disappointed if you choose a procedure that doesn't give you the result you were hoping for in order to avoid a scar. I suggest you find a board certified plastic surgeon who can go over the options with you and let you know exactly what to expect if a certain type of lift is performed. Best wishes!

Breast augmentation and lift candidate, some advices:
After having analyzed all the information and photos provided to us, I realize that you have very sagging and small breasts. In this regard, you need volume (implants) and projection (the lift): Breast Augmentation w/Breast Lift.
I recommend you to use microtexturized highly cohesive silicon implant ("gummy bear" implants), with high projection, and 550ml will be excelent on you, to fill the breasts properly.
Finally, to perform the breast lift I recommend a Periareolar Round Block Breast Lift ("Benelli mastopexy"), which has an unnoticed scar around the areola, and if we see (in the surgery) that we can't obtain adecuate projection just with the Benelli Lift, we have to perform a "Lollipop breast lift".

Breast lift and implants
One of the more difficult operations in plastic surgery is a breast augmentation combined with a breast lift. Throw in significant asymmetry in size, nipple/areolar position, and areolar diameter and the operation becomes even more difficult. Your best shot at obtaining symmetry would be a full lift on the larger breast and an areolar reduction on the smaller breast with implants. Good luck!
