Can the breast shape be changed?

If one is happy with size after a breast reduction but the shape is not natural because the breasts are wide and flattened in the center, is there anything that can be done?

It is possible to reshape the breasts using the existing scars from your previous reduction.

Can you elaborate on the technique for reshaping the breast? Does it involve implants? If the size is perfect but the breasts are wide and flattened in the center such that the bra cup is not filled out in the center of the cup but is filled out on the sides, what technique is employed to change this?

It is not possible to detail a procedure for reshaping the breast without an examination.  Implants are not necessary unless an increase in volume is desired.  Based on your description, some form of modified breast lift with coning of the breast to achieve central fullness seem a likely possibility
