Areolar Reduction for tuberous breasts
You do not have tuberous breasts. You have large, ptotic (droopy) breasts with large areolas. You would be best served by having a lift or a small reduction, which would simultaneously reduce the diameter of your areolas and deal with the droopiness. If you seek to have the areolas reduced alone, you may be disappointed in that the resultant scars tend to stretch out.
Best to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon.
