Bilateral breast augmentation to fix tubular breasts, why do they still look odd? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 8
Thanks for submitting your picture. From observing your picture, you appear to have ptosis level 2, large herniating areolas and double bubble.
The correct procedure for tubular breasts is breasts augmentation and mini lift (donut). These procedures correct the small and droopy breasts, and the large herniating areolas.
It seems that your surgeon tried to correct your ptosis and create the illusion of perkiness by lowering the sub mammary crease, which created the double bubble deformity.
The reason that your left breasts looks smaller to you, is because it is more droopy, which creates less fullness of the upper pole and gives the impression of being smaller.
It is obvious from your questions, that you are unhappy with the result. So, in order to achieve your desired result, you will have to have corrective surgery which will include bilateral mini lift procedure and right breast inferior capsulorrhaphy (internal bra).
Always, consult with experience board certified plastic surgeons who do lots of redo breast augmentation in accredited surgery center for your safety. Most importantly, check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery, to make sure that they are numerous, consistent and attractive.
Best of luck,

Circumareola lift possibly
However, with the limited photo, it seems to me you may need an incision around your nipple to tighten the front of the breast and reign in the nipples, which are slightly herniated. Whether or not undergoing a revision procedure is worth it to you, depends upon how bothered you are by the appearance. Discuss these concerns with your surgeon, and if still dissatisfied, perhaps a second opinion.
Best of luck!
