Best Breast Surgery for Me (Tuberous/Constricted Breasts)?
Thank you for the question but, unfortunately, no pictures were posted with the question. Exactly what operation you will benefit will depend on your physical examination and goals. I would suggest that you meet with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience helping patients in your situation and communicate your goals clearly. You may find the attached link, discussing treatment of tuberous/constricted breasts, helpful to you as you do your research.
Small breasts and correction of asymmetry.
Unfortunately, any useful advice would require an examination as your situtation is not a straightforward augmentation or lift. Recommend visiting with multiple Board Certified PS before proceeding.

Mastopexy does affect breast feeding
as some ducts may be cut during the mastopexy resulting in a diminished ability to fully breast feed. If you are desiring to fully breast feed, wait until you are done with having children then go for your breast rejuvenation procedure. If it isn't that important, then you can certainly go ahead with a lift with or without an augmentation. Your surgeon should be able to help yo appreciate what result you will achieve from the lift or combination procedure.
Breast lift on Tuberous Breasts
You can change the shape of your breasts some and the position of your nipple but in all likelihood you will do better with a small implant to help reestablish a normal symmetrical base width. You should see a few PS and get their opinions about what is possible. There is no question that given your age it is worth it. Getting a few different opinions does not mean you are going to have surgery.
Odd shaped breasts
It would really be helpful to see photos of your situation. You may just need implants, or you may need a lift depending on the situation.
Breast Lift without Implants
If you are satisfied with your size, then a breast lift may be appropriate. If you would like more volume, then an implant and lift may be performed. Future breast feeding, depending upon what needs to be done and how the surgery can be performed, may not be affected.
Breast lift questions and preganancy
Really need a photograph to give you some positive feedback. Yes, it is possible to have a breast lift without a breast augmentation. I frequently perform a procedure known as a vertical breast lift with a dermal pedicle autoaugmentation. So if you are satisfied with your breast size then this may be a procedure to consider. If breast feeding is a real concern then it is always best to defer surgery until after your are finished with your family.
No surgery for now
To maintain the best ability to breast feed I would await to have the surgery until after giving birth.
