I had 25 year old, 385 g silicon implants removed, with lift, 12 weeks ago. I am questioning if the lift was done. How do you determine that a lift was done? Are these photos indicative of a lift?

Was a lift done?
I would definitely recommend talking to your plastic surgeon. From the photos, it looks as though a circumareolar lift may have been done (if you have a "donut" scar all the way around the areola. To achieve more skin reduction and more of a lift, it will likely require removing more skin through a vertical +/- an inframammary fold incision. Talk with your doctor about what was done, what he or she expects with the healing process, and what your expectations were/are.

Surgical procedures completed?
I would advise a discussion with your plastic surgeon as to what was done during the surgery. You can also request a copy of your Operative Report which should detail what procedures were completed during your surgery. Good luck.
