Ptosis vs tubular breasts
Candidate for a BA
See the below link on some suggestions on finding the most qualified Plastic Surgeon for a breast augmentation.
Any women desiring breast augmentation surgery is a candidate as long as there are no health problems present which would preclude her from having surgery. If the desired goal is to enhance or restore size and shape or to improve asymmetry, breast augmentation is a viable option. Breast augmentation can improve a body image, self-esteem, self-concept, and quality of life.
Ideal Candidates for Breast Augmentation
- Desire larger, shapelier breasts.
- Moderate degree of breast sag and smaller breasts, whose problem can be solved by enlargement.
- One breast that is noticeably smaller or is positioned differently than the other (asymmetry).
- Uneven chest wall or rib cage.
- Women requiring breast reconstruction following a mastectomy.
- Restore breast volume or shape following pregnancy, breast feeding and/or weight loss.
More droopy and asymmetric

To achieve your goals you will need adjunctive procedures to make the breasts more similar such as a crescent mastopexy to adjust nipple position as well as barrel stave cuts in the breast tissue itself at the time of augmentation and possibly different sized implants. Exact symmetry is obviously not achievable but symmetry can be dramatically improved by surgery. Just putting in implants will likely only make the asymmetry more visible.
I hope you realize that this format of posting questions and receiving answers lacks the face to face direct communication required for you to make an informed decision regarding your surgery.
My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship in order to know if this assessment is valid.

The potential for improvement is quite good but it's unrealistic to expect perfect symmetry. Good luck and best wishes.

You could possibly argue that one has a very mild tuberous-like appearance, however it is predominantly saggy like the other. So, augmentation should be performed with a breast lift to achieve a normal and natural result that will be appealing.
Best of luck!
