The risk of having nipple sensation being interrupted can be reduced by using an incision under your breast vs having the icnision in your areola

Yes a decrease or de sensitivity from the circumareolar approach can be done. But you also might consider counseling for your other issues/ Good luck.

Breast augmentation usually does not affect the sensation of the nipples. It is difficult to predict which patients may get hypersensitivity or lose sensation.

Honestly, as doctors, we are trained to try and maintain the normal structures.  While loss of sensation to the nipple is a risk for breast augmentation, we tend to think of this as a  complication that we want to avoid, not something we want to achieve.  I think that you are an excellent candidate for a breast augmentation.  If you wanted to shorten the length of your nipples, that would also be a possibility
