My breasts are deflated, sit low on my chest and are different sizes. My ultimate goal is to have large (DD), round shape breasts that sit higher on my body with the nipples higher and pointing forward rather than out. I've visited several surgeons. One suggested 500cc textured dual plane with no lift. One sent me away said he couldn't me. Another suggested teardrops 400 cc - no lift. I'm thinking Id like 450-500cc HP textured with some type of lift. Any thoughts, comments greatly appreciated.

What Implant and Lift Do You Recommend?
A true DD cup in your case might need more than 500 cc UHP implants! As for any lifting I would offer a crescent lift ONLY!
you have a breast hypotrophy combined with a breast assimetry, the fold or surcus of your right breast it is much higher than the left and the size much smaller , also the right breast looks tuberous ,
my recomendation is radiation of right breast tissue , creation of a new fold of 2 to 3 cm than the one that exists already, an implant of 500 right breast , implant of 450 left breast . both behind muscle , the distance that looks of your nipple seems that you wont need lifting , because you do not have ptosis you just have emptyness of your upper poles
Implants don't change overall breast position on the chest wall
You raise some good questions regarding breast implants and chest wall and breast shape. You indicate that your breasts are wide-set and that your nipple point more outward than forward. Those things will not change with a breast implant. Your breast position on your chest wall is not altered by an implant.

Thank you for your question and photos. You have some mild ptosis (sagging) of the breast, but not a lot. You also have a bit of a size difference. On size, don't get too caught up in cc's. By far, the most important issue here is width and height of the implant rather than cc's. Your implant should cover your chest from the desired cleavage point to the edge of the chest. Otherwise, you will maintain the gap in between the breasts that you currently have. I would recommend a MP+ or HP implant of the proper width as your implant. On lift, you probably don't need a lift, per say, but you will have nipple asymmetry without one. A periareolar lift will correct this issue. This is an example of a patient somewhat similiar to you that had a nipple asymmetry that she did not desire correction.

Unfortunately your question illustrates one of the limitations of this type of online forum, that being that it is difficult to impossible to give you sound recommendations about the questions that you ask without an exam. There is so much important information gathered during the exam which is necessary to properly plan such a procedure. Without this information, any surgeon would merely be guessing. I could agree with any of the opinions that you say that you have been given just based upon what is presented here. The best thing to do is to find a board certified surgeon who you can trust and with whom you have a connection, perhaps a friend or family member has had surgery by him or her, and have a consultation in which you ask detailed questions about the plan. If the plan seems reasonable to you, and the surgeon has demonstrated good results with his plans for other patients, then you might consider following his advice. Otherwise, keep looking, but do it in person, as online opinions are just educated guesses at what you actually need to meet your goals.
Breast Lift and Implants
Without an exam, I cannot recommend a lift. Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to discuss breast sizes and lift. Try on sizers in the office, so you and your surgeon agree on the size, and type of implants that will work best for you.
