Would my Breasts Be Considered Tubular?
No, you have a right breast with a larger areola and a bit of sagging. A right breast lift (circumareolar) or around the areola should be all thats need. The scars usually heal very well around the areola so this should not be a concern.
You are not tubular
You are asymmetrical -- the Right can be lifted and the nipple reduced. All involves surgery with some degree of scarring. You do not need implants.
Lifts and scarring
go hand in hand and you cannot have one without the other. As for tubular, I would not consider your breasts to fall into that category. If you want improved symmetry, a vertical lift on the larger side with a periareolar lift on the perkier side could be done (with limited reductions, depending on what you desired). If your size is good enough, you do not need implants.

Your breasts are only mildly tubular if that. They would benefit from a vertical lift to tighten the lower pole on the right side and shorten the distance from the areola to the IMF. If you do not mind a little flattening in the upper pole then you could avoid an implant. A periareolar lift would probably be possible on the left side, but a small vertical component would make for better symmetry.
Correction of a wide areola with breast sagging
You do not have tuberous breasts but do have some of the features associated with this condition. Your areola are wide and you have a high inframammary crease. To correct your level of sagging and to decrease the size of your areola you would need a vertical mastopexy.
Yes , you do have tubular breast , not a pure sindrome of but with many components , is also present assymetry in location and volume , but the shape is tubular , bigger complex nipple areola, herniation of the complex and pseudoptosis , if the PS does not take this caractheristics in consideration your shape will remain tubular eventhoug lif t and implant because the tubular shape should be changed during your surgery with a technique for tubuerous breast
Tubular breasts with asymmetry can be corrected without implants.
You look like a great candidate for correction just with scars around the nipples. You need a little lift in one breast and a little reduction (also making the areola smaller) on the other.
Your breasts are not tuberous. They are asymmetrical and the larger breast has ptosis. This can be treated by mastopexy alone. The correct surgical technique can only be determined after an in-person assessment. Sometimes there is a tradeoff between less scarring and less result; determination of which technique is best suited to you may involve weighing these two issues.
Tubular breast asymmetry
Thank you for the question and the photos.
If you are happy with the volume of your breasts you don't need implants. You would however need a lift to correct the asymmetry and this could be either a lift with incisions around the Areola and/or a vertical lift. I would recommend seeing a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to give you a better idea of what to expect.

Correcting symmetry without implants
Your asymmetry can be fixed without a breast implant. A breast lift to correct the skin envelope and nipple, with a small amount of reduction will give you symmetry with reasonable scar. Breast implants could be considered later, but it does complicate the balance needed for symmetry.
