Hi. You are correct that there is an item number for tuberous breasts in Australia. By the use of your term cosmetic surgeon I gather that you have not seen a qualified plastic surgeon and this is imperative as you are not an easy case. They will be able to give you the exact answer to your question. The photos you have taken are not straight on and seem to be looking up so it is difficult to say for certain however I dont think you would qualify for an item number.RegardsDamien

Thank you for your question. It appears as though you would require a cosmetic breast augmentation. Perhaps schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon to discuss your options. Best,
