Shape of breasts
Thank you for your clinical post and photographs. From the photographs your breasts appear quite normal but small. To achieve a more rounder shape, a very small modest breast implant may provide the aesthetic enhancement you’re seeking. There are various breast implant sizes and shapes and they can be placed through a transaxillary incision so no visible breast scar ensues or through an under the breast incision and most uncommonly perioareolar incision.
Implants can be saline, salt water filled or cohesive gummy bear implants, round or tear dropped.
As there are many options a consultation is in your best interest. Although fat grafting can provide a modest improvement in breast size perhaps half a cup, you need to have enough fat donor site in order to do this and results are not always as predictable. Some patients, however, find this preferable.
And my patients find that the 3D computer imaging or Vectra 3D that I’ve been using for the past 6 or 7 years is an excellent way to more precisely visualize the kind of fresh shape and contour they will achieve. This gives a very accurate prediction of the kind of outcomes one can achieve with different size and shaped implants.
The operation is generally acceptable, recovery is quick and is one of the more popular procedures that we perform.
I hope this information is of some assistance and best of luck. To find out more, please visit the link below. Also visit the area of the Vectra 3D to see the kinds of predictive imaging that can be performed.

Thank you for your question and photos. Your breasts appear small but normal shaped. It looks like breast implants could help give you the more rounded shape you desire. There are different types and projections of implant that you could discuss. I recommend that you meet with a board certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation. My patients find it helpful to try on the implant sizers in the office in order to get a feel for how they will look.
All the best

You do not have a tuberous breast. You have a natural, beautiful looking breast, both when the nipples are soft and when they're erect. There is no good surgical procedure that will permanently duplicate the appearance of your breast when your nipple is erect.
Best of luck!
