What's the best way to correct tubular breast? It would be necessary to remove my actual prostheses?

Tuberous breasts - not corrected. Must implant be removed?
Unfortunately without a photo, one can only answer in general -
If the breast shape itself is poor, then the implant needs to be removed during surgery to release the breast.
The implant is then replaced at the same operation.
If the nipple prominence is the only problem, then it may be able to leave the implant in place.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
