Wondering if I would be a good candidate for an areola breast lift?

Breast lifts should give you a full perky breast, (the areolar technique probably won't)
I think that an areolar lift alone may not be satisfying for you. Although I only have a couple photos to go by, I would worry that just moving your areola alone may not look nice. You may actually make your breasts look a bit unusual if you move the areola too much as they will sit above your breast tissue and point upwards. Also by just doing a lift and not altering the shape of the underlying breast tissue you will have a flattening affect on your breast.
What you really need is to see a breast surgeon (a plastic surgeon with a special interest in breast surgery...not just a cosmetic surgeon) in your area to go over all your options. I think that you have some excellent features to your breasts that could help them look terrific after surgery. However, there are some specific procedures that I would hope that they discuss with you. In particular I think you could get an excellent result if you either did some fat transfer to the upper breast or just reshape the breast tissue to make a perky full breast. Based on the photos I think that by using a self-augmentation technique you could have a beautiful shape with nice full projection. Something that an areolar lift alone could not do.

Periareolar breast lift
A periareolar breast lift will likely flatten your breasts and take away any projection that you currently have. Reconsider an implant, or possibly even fat transfer, if you have any fat to transfer. Good luck!
