There are many options available in terms of the type of breast lift that is done.
Is important that you consult a very experienced board certified plastic surgeon. The Smart Beauty Guide is a good place to start.

Can you advise me on what procedures I would need to restore my breasts to their youthful appearance?
Thank you for the question and pictures. Base on your photographs, you are correct in that you are a good candidate for breast augmentation/lifting surgery. Despite good intentions, online consultants will not be able to provide you with meaningful specific advice regarding optimal breast implant size/profile to help achieve your goals. Ultimately, in person consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons will be necessary. Careful measurements, dimensional planning, and careful communication will be key.
Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery ( regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you're looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.
2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining which operation and/or breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals.
In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or "C or D cup" etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful.
Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate. The use of computer imaging may be very helpful during this communication phase.
3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your plastic surgeon to use his/her years of experience/judgment to choose the breast implant size/profile that will best meet your goals. Again, in my practice, this decision is usually made during surgery. The use of temporary intraoperative sizers and a “tailor tacking” technique is very helpful during the breast implant size selection process.
I hope this, and the attached link, helps.
