Should I have different cc implants?

Hi, similar to a recent enquiry but pre-surgery. I have asymmetrical breasts and assumed in surgery I would have some of this evened up with different cc implants used. However after a consult with a surgeon I was told this isn't the case & the same size cc would be used (between 300-350cc in both) even though the different sizes were measured & acknowledged. Why is this? Is this just surgeon preference or can different sizes be used? I'm worried the difference in volume will be extra obvious and that will bother me as much as having smaller breasts. The smaller (right) breast also seems to droop more. You can really tell the difference in volume if I bend over. Thank you

    Hi Misse.
    Thank you for your question regarding breast asymmetry. From the photograph provided, I cannot see the difference between the two breasts, so I can only comment in principle.
    In general, if the difference in breast size is minimal, then the same sized implants should be used, in order to be consistent with implant dimensions. Different sized and dimensioned implants will behave differently and look different, and this can potentially create a new form of asymmetry. If the shape is different, then techniques such as a breast lift or customised dual-plane pocket creation can aid in minimising the asymmetry.   
    All the very best.
