Treatment for tubular breasts
Yes you do have tuberous breasts. Tuberous breast correction is a very meticulous and specialized procedure and should only be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in this area. I prefer using a breast implant in conjunction with a periareolar incision for reconstructive tubular breast surgery as it provides the highest degree of control and accuracy when placing the implant. This surgical technique results in a natural, symmetrical, and full breast appearance. In order to restore a more ideal and rounded breast shape, you may also recommend a breast lift along with the augmentation. Each patient with tuberous breasts is unique, and so is their surgery. I would need to consult with you in person to determine the best tuberous breast correction surgery approach.

Tuberous breasts best treated with implants and a lift
Although simply placing an implant cold be accomplished, this could result in just a larger distorted breast. I do believe that you would benefit from a lollipop type of breast lift which would reduce the areola and reposition your breast to a better more youthful appearance.
Finally, there is another alternative although in your case it might be somewhat limited which would include the use of BRAVA expansion and fat grafting. I have had many patients who have shown a nice improvement with this approach as well. In any case, I would recommend that you have a full consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in these matters. I hope this helps and have a wonderful day.
