Implants and lift for tuberous breasts
Your photo allows for limited evaluation, but you appear to have tuberous or constricted breasts. This entity is best treated with a combination of breast lift to reposition the nipple and reshape the breast (especially the lower portion) and implants. Best to seek out an in person consultation so that your goals and appropriate options for you as an individual can be discussed. Best of luck, Dr. Meghan Nadeau, Seattle, WA

Breast lift and/or breast augmentation?
Minor amounts of breast drooping can be improved with a breast implant augmentation alone.
In your case, however, I would recommend a circumareolar breast lift first. This breast lift technique removes skin and excess areola with the repair concealed within the boarder of the areola. This will improve the appearance of your breast a great deal without decreasing the overall cup size.
Once you have complete healing and would like to be bigger, then a breast implant augmentation could be performed 6 or more months later. The reason to separate the two procedures is the challenge of trying to make a breast bigger by volume and lesser by skin cover at the same time. Both procedures cause increased tension on the skin and repair which can lead to more scarring and breast form distortion.
Hope this helps! Come and see me in Fort Wayne, not to far from Chicagoland! All my best.
