Mild constricted, Tight tissue breast. Freaked out! Any suggestions?

Without the benefit of pictures, it is difficult to completely answer your question. However, radial scoring of the lower half of the breast is the treatment to avoid a double-bubble in a constricted breast. It can be done from either an inframammary incision or through the areola. I agree with your surgeon's plan.

Thank you for your question. It won't be possible to give you personalized advice without an exam but if the Plastic Surgeons who met with you are suggesting radial scoring for constricted tissue in the lower poles then they do not feel that the implants alone will be able to stretch out and improve the breast contour. A combination of constriction release and placement of implants is usually helpful. I recommend that you carefully select board certified, experienced plastic Surgeons and then trust their recommendations for you as they will want to ensure that you have the best possible outcome and do not end up disappointed with your results.
All the best
