I am a mid-twenties woman with mild scoliosis, which causes my left ribs to stick out further than my right.

My left breast appears larger partly because of this, and partly because of the difference in volume (nearly a cup size difference: B vs. C). The left (larger) breast is also placed much more on the outside of the torso than the right.

Is breast augmentation likely to solve any of these problems and give me an even look? Is it possible to achieve this by simply adding an implant to the smaller breast? Thank you!

A: Breast asymmetry and breast implants

All women have breast asymmetry to some extent, either volume or shape differences or both. If you have a noticeable difference in both size and shape, due to scoliosis, a larger implant on your smaller side will help improve your asymmetry however it will not completely correct this. Your larger breast will always seem larger, however the implant on the smaller side will create a more symmetrical contour in clothes.

Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon and try on several different sizes until you are comfortable with your implant size.
