Any suggestions for asymmetrical breasts?!

I have asymmetrical breasts with one being much bigger than the other, a D and a B probably. Im considering breast reduction for the D sized breast because its giving me too much back pain, but i feel like the other one is small for my body so would i need to get reduction for one and implants for both? and would reduction be covered by health insurance?

A breast reduction for your larger breast and a breast implant for the other might suffice. This would even out their size asymmetry. If your overly large breast is causing you pain or other health issues, then it may be covered by OHIP.

Asymmetrical breasts with one significantly large and the other too small can definitely be corrected with a reduction on the larger and an implant on the smaller. This does, however, require significant expertise, so make sure you choose a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience with breast remodeling.
