Surgery after weight loss
Congrats on your weight loss.
The cost of surgery will depend on exactly what is needed during your surgery. In many weight-loss patients I will tighten the skin on the side toward your upper back at the same time as I do the augmentation/lift surgery and this will add to the cost- but likely avoid other surgery in the future.
Breast Surgery after Weight Loss
Congratulations on losing the weight! I would suggest that you lose the additional 40 lbs that you are wishing to lose before having surgery because as you continue to lose weight, your breasts will also change so it is best to do the surgery when you are at a stable, baseline weight. Yes, I think you would benefit from breast lifting surgery as well as breast augmentation surgery. I agree that with that amount of weight loss, the surgeon you choose should take into consideration your skin elasticity when discussing implant size. I would possibly suggest a 2 stage procedure for you - depending on the examination. I think it's more realistic to get pricing once you have reached your goal weight.

Breast Lift and Implants After Massive Weight Loss
Congratulations on your weight loss. A breast lift with implants is a great operation to help restore you to a new and improved you, but you have to be realistic about your body. The image you show is a large implant that is already too heavy for this woman's body causing some skin stretch and bottoming out. You will be much worse as a result of your loss of skin elasticity and quality after the weight gain and loss. The larger the implant you get the worse your outcome and higher likelihood you will end up with another operation sooner than you would like.
See a board certified plastic surgeon in your area and get an opinion about your options. But, most importantly, you need to be realistic about your body as well as the changes it has undergone that no surgeon can make disappear. This operation will make dramatic changes for you, but you need to be preparing for the right procedure.
Best of luck
