BA (borderline) recommended possible lift?

I had a consult with a cosmetic surgeon today re: BA. One of my breast is about a cup size larger than the other (I'm right handed and right breast is larger). He recommended 450cc high profile for my left, smaller breast and 330cc moderate profile for my right, larger breast. He has suggested I also get a reduction/lift of my right breast for optimal results and getting a second opinion before going ahead with my surgery (booked for 11/12/2015 and fully paid), term they used was "borderline". I never once went into this even considering the fact I'd require a lift. I'm 25yrs, no children and not planning on any for a good few years. Would love as many opinions as I can get.

    Hi Tash,
    I think it really depends on your goals for the surgical enhancement or correction of your breast asymmetry condition. There will always be tradeoffs between different approach in addressing your specific clinical situation.
    Breast asymmetry correction can be very complex and is more than just volume equalisation. Without knowing exactly what you really want to achieve with respect to size, shape & symmetry, it can be difficult to advise what would be the right thing to do in your case. 
    If you really value an independent qualified opinion, I highly recommend you to have a personal consultation with a specialist plastic surgeon for learning more about the various suitable options available. You only have one chance to create your "perfect" breasts!
    This is purely elective surgery. I sincerely think it'll worth you while to consider all your options before committing to a decision which is right for you.
    Hope that helps.
    Best wishes

    Hi Tash
    Correction of breast asymmetry can be very challenging! It is common to have some differences between the size, shape, and position of each breast. 
    It is difficult to assess patients without physically seeing them. Photos with shadows can be very deceptive!
    Its best to be assessed in person, ideally with a VECTRA system as an adjunct to help. 
    More importantly, your expectations and outcomes should be discussed with a specialist plastic surgeon before committing to any surgery.
