****__customer needs pants taken in after weight loss.  Right side much bigger
than left.  Rightside actually fits perfectly, but left side is way too big.

So you need to take the left side in yes?

If those are expensive dress pants belonging to a good suit jacket,  
"_customer" may want to look for a real alterationist.

It would appear from OP's cryptic message that the pants need to be  
reduced in size on the left side only. Probably simplest done at the  
side seam, but not an easy task, as that's usually where a pocket  
is.  Taking them apart and reducing width of the left side at CF and  
CB would be another (but more time consuming) option (zipper, fly,  
etc.).  Best alteration yet would be to recut front and back of the  
left side, taking equal amounts out of CF, CB, AND both side seams.  
Worth it if the suit is a British bespoke suit.  Otherwise, not so  
much...
