Is it possible for me to improve the look of my breasts with implants alone?
Based on your photograph, your breasts do not appear to be tuberous. To verify, you should have an in person consultation and exam with an experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeon.
Improving breast shape with implants alone
You don't appear to have tuberous breasts based on your picture. You appear to have slight breast asymmetry and breast ptosis (sagging). Placing an implant in the submammary plane (on top of the muscle) may improve shape and position of the nipple and areola without a breast lift. Depending on your appearance goals you may want to consider a breast augmentation and mastopexy (lift) for the best improvement in breast shape and lift.
Improving breast shape with implants
Looking at the picture it does not seem to be that you have tuberous breast. It is possible to improve the shape and form of your breast by a breast augmentation qprocedure which would add volume and uplift your breast.

Improving breasts with implants and possible breast lift
Thank you for your photos. Your breasts are not tuberous. Many would consider your breasts very attractive as they are now. If you want something different, that is possible. Whether an implant alone, a lift, or both would be chosen depends on your goals. Be careful to select an experienced surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery to help you discern what is right for you.

From your photos it does not appear that you have tuberous breast. There is some inequality and sagging. In your case, breast implants alone would most likely give you a good result without the need for a lift or other procedure.
I think based solely on your photos that you do not have tuberous breasts. The left does look a bit narrow but they are small and slightly saggy.
Mild sagging can be corrected with breast implants and internal (scarless) lift only.
You do not have tuberous breasts. You have mild sagging and the left breast is a little smaller. I think you will do fine just with implants (slightly larger on the left) and an internal lift
Is a lift needed
Thanks for the question. First your breasts are not tuberous. Your left breast is smaller. I do not have additional pictures or breast measurements to determine if you would need a lift in addition to your augmentation You should consult with a couple of PS for a complete evaluation.
Thank you for the question and picture.
It is difficult to make an accurate diagnosis based on the photograph provided, but I do not see any sign of significant breast constriction. You do demonstrate asymmetric breast hypoplasia with some degree of ptosis (“sagging”). Most of the typical findings seen with tuberous breasts are not present. Some of the characteristics seen with tuberous breasts include a very narrow base, short distance from areola to inframammary fold, tight (constricted) lower pole of the breasts, relatively wide space between the breasts, "puffy" and areola and some degree of ptosis (drooping).
I would suggest in-person consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons. Ask to see lots of examples of their work and communicate your goals ( I'd prefer the use of goal pictures).
Are breasts tuberous?
It is difficult to assess your chest wall and make any recommendations based on the quality of your photo. But it does appear that one breast sags more than the other. In addition, it appears you may have a mild constricted breast base. A formal physical exam is needed to make any recommendations. But I think you would need to additional interventions (such as a lift) in conjuctions with your implant augmentation. Please visit with a board certified PS in your area to learn more about your options.
