My question is, from a surgical stand point, what should I have done to correct my breasts. (photos)

Thank you for your clinical post and photographs. The post and photographs show some degree of inadequate volume of projection with enlarged areolas and left-sided tuberous variant.
There are several options that may be reasonable. The most common procedure offered would be a breast augmentation. The breast augmentation would give you increased volume and projection. There would need to be some corrective maneuvers to improve the tuberous or constricted base on the left side and the breast mounds would be enlarged giving the areolas a relatively smaller appearance, but they would remain enlarged. This may provide you with the type of improvement you’re looking for and minimize scarring around the areola region. Alternatively, a perioareolar mastopexy or areolar reduction can be performed together with breast augmentation and correction of a constriction on the left side. This, however, will leave you scars around the areola and if they don’t heal well you might be quite self-conscious about them.
Alternatively and probably less traumatically fat grafting to the breast gland can increase moderately the glandular volume and shape of the breast. At this point in time, a consultation with a certified plastic surgeon with breast experience would be in your best interest. I would select a centre that has 3D imaging that would allow you to assess the aesthetic impact of a breast implant alone. If you like the size and shape of the breast without reducing the size of the areola, but increasing the breast mound then you’ve answered your question in breast lift mastopexy and perioareolar scars will not be necessary.
Select two or three surgeons to interview prior to deciding what is the best operation for you and I’m sure you can develop more confidence around more full breasts and an improved shoulder-breast-waist-hip ratio.
I hope this information is of some assistance and best of luck.

Breast Lift with Implants and Areola Reduction
Women´s breast change and normally get saggy after weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, etc.This procedure raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Implants would make your breast look perkier, increase their size and have an upper pole fullness. Hope this helps. Good luck.
