I think that you need lollipop lifts with the implants beneath the muscle. This position will put less stress on the skin of the breasts, reduce the chances of capsular contracture, and allow you to have better mammograms.
The doughnut lift will not, in my opinion , have enough strength to hold the skin firmly for an extended period of time, and you will probably eventually have very large nipple-areoalar complexes. the implants will also ride low if you put them on top of the muscle.
Hope this helps a bit.

It also depends on the look you want
You should seek further consultation from the doctors you have seen to clarify your concerns, or seek another consultation from a board certified plastic surgeon. Having said that, you have significant ptosis as well as very large areolas for your breast size. You should bring photos of the breast examples that you would like to achieve. There generally isn't a single best answer, but different techniques will yield different results and final look. You should look at examples of the technique that your surgeon is proposing, as surgeons will often be ble to achieve the best look with the technique they are most comfortable with.

In my opinion, your options will lie between a vertical/ anchor type lift along with augmentation mammaplasty that can be done in the same setting.
I may also recommend more that one consultation, in person, prior making your final decision.

Your ptosis supersedes any question of tuberous breast issues. Implants do best under the muscle, and your breast tissue would be best managed with a full lift.
Best of luck!
What kind of breast lift and implants?
'anchor' type of surgery. I would place your implants on top of your muscles so
that if you have any future sagging, as you probably will, your implant will be
part of your breast and descend with the breast tissue and not stay behind your
pectoralis muscles and possibly result in a "double bubble" deformity.
