Silicone implants placed around the areola
This is possible, but stretching will most likely be required to place the implants this way. The stretching might have an effect on the nipple sensation after surgery.

In women with small areolae, the use of a Keller Funnel can allow the placement of almost any size implant through a very small incision.

Thank you for the question and pictures. Yes, there should be no problem performing breast augmentation surgery with silicone gel breast implants through the infra areolar approach for you. These days, this approach is even easier utilizing the Keller funnel; this device allows for insertion of silicone gel breast implants through small incisions, without the breast implants touching the patient's skin (part of the “no touch technique”).
Unless you are able to obtain “modified duty”, you may need a few weeks off before you are able to return to your occupation, which involves heavy lifting. Your plastic surgeon will be of more specific help to you in this regard.
I hope this, and the attached link, helps. Best wishes.
