Implants not enough to correct shape and position of tuberous breasts
the other incisions available are transaxillary and inframammary. Inframammary is the best incision since it is
a direct approach to the under surface of the pectoralis major muscle. However, if you have tuberous breasts, the
circumareola approach is recommended to reshape your breast tissue. Implants alone are not enough to correct the
tuberous shape of your breast. Implants
only change size, not shape and position of the breast mound.

Breaset augmentation incisions
There are several options for incisions commonly used for breast augmentation. Periareolar, inframammary, and transaxillary.
I prefer to insert silicone gel implants through an inframammary fold incision in the crease of the breast. This scar hides really well in the crease of the breast after it heals.
Silicon Gel implants inserted in the crease under the breast
I usually insert the silicone gel implants through the crease under the breast. The suture line does not show after a few weeks and heals very nicely.
Difficult to evaluate with tuberous breasts without seeing the patient.
It is possible BUT if you have tubular breasts, you will need a peri-areolar incision to address the herniation of your areola so using another incision will just add an extra scar for no reason.
