Doubting Breast Augmentation

I would do an internal lift called a dual plane, (see link below) through an incision in the breast fold, so you wouldn't have an incision on your breast and would still obtain a lift our of the surgery. However, you need to be 100% sure of what you want before having surgery. You may want to give this more thought.
Be sure to see only a board certified plastic surgeon (by ABPS - The American Board of Plastic Surgery) who is a member of ASAPS (The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) and or a member of ASPS (The American Society of Plastic Surgeons). Also, ask if they have an established, high volume breast augmentation practice, performing several hundred breast augmentations each year. Ask to see their before and after photos if you didn’t see any on their website. If they are experienced, they should have several 100 breast implant patients for you to view. I would also recommend that your doctor offer you the chance to talk to past patients who would be happy to discuss their experience with you. You need to feel comfortable, so make sure the environment is safe as in an accredited surgery center. Also, ask a prospective surgeon if he or she has ever published journal articles in professional peer-reviewed journals, which they can provide you. All the best, “Dr. Joe”

Questions about augmentation
Unsure about breast augmentation 1 week before surgery
That said based on your photographs you will need a breast lift with a vertical component (Lollipop lift) and breast augmentation and the sub-muscular location for the best result.
Unsure before breast augmentation
If it were me, I would suggest an inframammary crease incision, smooth round gel implants under the muscle using a moderate profile style with a width to match your width and finish with a periareolar lift. I like the 2 incision approach now because of the decreased risk of capsular contracture than when it is all done through the areola.
