The best approach to correct this is through a sub glandular breast augmentation, with carefully placed incisions within the breast tissue itself to release the constrictions. The breast fold is lowered and typically a silicone implant is then placed, often textured to prevent downward displacement of the implant. This is usually performed through an incision along the border of the areola.

Thank you for the question and pictures.
Yes, I think your breasts do demonstrate some of the characteristics seen with tuberous (constricted) breasts. There are lots of variations of tuberous breasts.
Some of the characteristics seen with tuberous breasts include a very narrow base, short distance from areola to inframammary fold, tight (constricted) lower pole of the breasts, relatively wide space between the breasts, "puffy" areola and some degree of ptosis (drooping).
Generally, correction of tuberous breast anomalies involves breast augmentation with areola reduction / mastopexy procedure. The distance from the inframammary fold is increased (to create a more rounded out appearance). Proper breast implant selection/positioning improves the distance (cleavage) between the breasts and will help improve the symmetry of the breasts as well. The areola reduction helps to treat the pointed and "puffy" appearance of the areola.
In your case, if the appearance/shape/size of the breasts are a concern, you may be an excellent candidate for corrective surgery. You are wise to achieve your long-term stable weight prior to proceeding with surgery; careful selection of your plastic surgeon will also be important. Exactly what operation would help you will depend on a full communication of your goals. Based on your question and pictures provided, a breast augmentation as well as an areolar skin/tissue reduction will serve to significantly improve the shape/contour of your breasts.

Seek a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to Treast Tuberous Breasts
Without the Breast Lift, the breasts may appear larger and more droopy with solely implants. They will sag more and sooner, due to the sudden and excess weight. It's also possible for a “Snoopy” breast or double bubble to develop as a result. The implant with lift can also re-position the nipples which may have been affected by ptosis or drooping. One of the primary intentions of a Breast Lift (#Mastopexy) is to improve the shape and position of the breast without reducing their size. It is used especially for breasts which sag or droop (#ptosis). Both procedures are commonly done together, in the same surgery to correct the effects sagging and turberous breasts.
The procedure should be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for a revision surgery. I suggest you view before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.
