Hello my problem is i was born with out a pectoral muscleon my right side and i was wondering if any one knows of any procedure i can have done to fix this problem to even out my chest

So it has been confirmed by a clinician that you are missing your right pectoral muscle?

If this is the case; there are certainly plastic surgery methods that could rectify this; contact your state board of plastic surgeons (if that is avail in your country) and find out which surgeon performs such surgerys.

Good Luck!
