Let me start by saying that I dislocated my (L) shoulder in 07'...no surgery just a fixed brace plus rehab, front Labrum tear. Fast forward to now and I am two weeks into a natty stack that is piling on the lean muscle and showing more overall definition. Since that is happening I am noticing that my left side is smaller albeit more defined (weird) than my right. the main places I notice this are my front Delt to outside/upper Pectoral, Lat and Trap. (pretty much everywhere I guess, LoL).
My questions is how do I go about bringing my left side more in line with my right? My initial thoughts were more reps or heavier weight on that side. I am just not sure.Day by Day, we get better and better! Tillí we canít be beat Ė Wonít Be Beat!

If possible I'd have a spotter check out your form to make sure that you're doing the same movements with both sides. If your form matches and symmetry is still an issue, you might want to try some ultra-slow reps or some high rep work in the beginning of your workouts to get the nerves all firing and to develop the mind/muscle connection.Go hard. Go heavy. Never stop.

I think if your form is good and you're being mindful of the muscles you're engaging, you'll be able to focus on the areas which are lagging and bring them up. I wouldn't say your "body should take care of it" because really it's going to be up to you as to how quickly you start making the changes you need to. Just try and "feel" the lagging areas and try and get a good squeeze in them when you're training them. I hope it helps!
As per the ultra-slow reps, I'd say do them on both sides. They're good for you because you're not using momentum and you're increasing time under tension, so they're going to be hard. Don't try and use the same weights you normally would though, because you should be shooting for 10 second reps. 5 sec eccentrics, 5 sec concentrics.
Go hard. Go heavy. Never stop.
