Thanks for submitting your picture. Adding a side view would have helped to better assess your levele of ptosis (droopiness ) . Being as it may, my impresion is the your nipples are at the level of the submammary crease or slightly above. That means that you can have breasts augmentation alone and by lowering the submammary crease you will get the illusion of higher and perkier nipples. Based on your history of hyper trophic scars, I would strongly recommend a sub areola incision which is more scar friendly than the submammary incision. Injection of small amount of steroids should be considered and discussed with you for better scarring. Always, consult with experienced board certified plastic surgeons and check their before and after pictures to make sure that you like the results.
Best of luck,

For the lift, I typically start with the smallest incision and custom tailor each breast lift to the shortest scar possible.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of breast augmentations and breast lifts each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

In my opinion, I do suggest a breast lift. An anchor incision breast lift and implant placement of 350-375 cc in a high round profile would give you the best result. Always consult a certified plastic surgeon.
