Augmentation Mastopexy for Assymetry & Ptosis
Often patients will have a better shape to their breast such as increased superior fullness if an implant is used at the time of mastopexy. Or, the procedure can also be combined with a minor breast reduction to reduce the breast width if desired.
The surgery will create an elevated, more youthful breast contour. Also, the procedure will create nipple and areolae of the desired size and at the correct height. Dr. Nichter and I use a short scar technique, “lollipop scar” or “donut lift” rather than the majority of surgeons in the United States that use an anchor pattern lift which involve more significant scarring.
It is imperative you select a plastic surgeon who is #board-certified and has a great deal of experience with breast #augmentation and the incision type, #implant placement, and implant type. Plastic surgeons who have specialized in breast surgery and cosmetic surgery are suitable to perform your breast augmentation. Aside from checking board-certification, it is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.

Thank you for your question and photo. An in-person exam and detailed discussion will be required to determine best options for you and so that you can discuss your concerns in detail. It appears that a lift and potential reduction on the right could make your breasts more similar, however often both sides require adjustment in order to carefully match/balance shape, volume and areolas. I recommend that you explore a few different options with your Plastic Surgeon.
All the best

Your first step is reach your target weight and maintain it for a couple of months. If your breasts continue to demonstrate similar asymmetry, then it appears that all you need is a lift/reduction on the left side to correct the breast and nipple areolar complex asymmetry. Be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
Breasts asymmetry corrective surgery
Thanks for submitting your picture, though bilateral side view pictures would have been very helpful.
From observing your picture, your left breast appears to be C cup size with level 3 (severe) ptosis, while your right breast appears to be small B cup size with large herniating areola.
Breasts size selection is very personal, however , a C cup size is very natural and attractive. So, my recommendation to you would be to have left breasts Mastopexy (full lift - key hole) and right breast sub muscular breasts augmentation with areola reduction (donut, Benelli) .
You did not provide your chest circumference measurement in inches, which is critical for the correct implant size selection. Let's assume that your chest circumference is 32 inches, to get to 32 C cup you will need implant with volume of 225 cc. For 34 C cup - 275 cc.
As far as your breasts continued growth, theoretically, the breasts can still grow up to the age of 22-24. So, you can wait until that age, however, since I am quite sure that you are troubled by you breasts shape and size, it will be beneficial for you to do it asap. That procedure will be one of the best investments in yourself. It will increase your self esteem, your sense of femininity and shopping will be lots of fun...
You have to realize, though, that not all results are the same because experience, skills and aesthetic eye are critical for good outcome. So, do your due diligence carefully and choose wisely.
Always, consult with experience board certified plastic surgeons who operate in accredited surgery center for your safety. Most importantly, check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery, to make sure that they are numerous, consistent and attractive with nice cleavage, perky, symmetrical and natural looking.
Best of luck,
