Do I need a breast lift?
A lift could give you full, balanced breasts.
A breast lift (mastopexy) would be the answer to your problems. A lift will tighten the breast tissue, raise the nipples and remove excess skin. The breasts may even appear to be slightly smaller and perkier after the procedure. If you want to add more volume and upper pole fullness, then breast implants can be considered.
A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon will provide you with your options. There are a few methods for breast lifting that exist and many different scar options as well. This will be discussed with you during your consultation.

Breast Lift Surgery
A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is necessary to give you a more personal assessment, but you appear to be a viable candidate for breast lift surgery based on your photos. During the procedure, excess breast tissue is removed, the nipple will be moved up, and the remaining tissue will be lifted and tightened to create more youthful-looking, balanced breasts. Some women receive breast implants during breast lift surgery in order to additionally add volume. I would suggest scheduling a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to learn more about your specific options.

I think you would really benefit from a lift. You do have a bit of droop. Your breasts are sitting on your tummy and your nipple is the lowest part of the breast and you have lost fullness in the upper part....A breast lift would fix all of these things. Now it's just finding the right time!!!
Breast lift candidate?
You would benefit from a formal breastlift with either a lollipop or anchor incision. Your breasts do sit low, and the lift would help better center your nipple and breast on your chest. If you are willing to accept the associated scars for better contour and position, that would be the way to go. Your cup size may come down up to one size with the lift.
Breast Lifting Necessary?
Thank you for the question and pictures.
Good advice would necessitate an in-person examination and a full communication of your goals. For example, I would want to know what you mean by “full balanced breasts”. The use of goal pictures would be helpful in this communication process.
Based on the photographs alone, I think you will do well with some degree of breast lifting.Breast lifting procedures are associated with scars on the breasts; exactly where these scars will be located will depend on the patient's physical examination and specific procedure performed. Ideally it is best to do this procedure when you completed pregnancies and are a long-term stable relationship.
Most patients undergoing this procedure at the right time in their lives will accept scarring as long as their overall goals in regards to size, shape, contour and symmetry are met.
In person consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons will be the best place to start. As you do your “homework” you will learn about the potential risks/complications. Again, consider issues such as timing of the surgery in relation to your life circumstances ( such as relationships and/or pregnancies).
Make sure you do your due diligence and see lots of examples of the plastic surgeons' work.
Do I need a lift??
If you are satisfied with your breast size, a lift should accomplish your goals. You would most likely need more than just an incision around the areola to accomplish this, and a discussion with a plastic surgeon in the consulting room will help work out the exact nature of the incision that would be best.
If you want larger breasts, then implants or fat injection would be in order. One quick screening test is to lift your arms over your head, which simulates some of the effects of the lift. Many patients feel their breasts look smaller when lifted, and if they look too small to you when the arms are elevated, consider enlargement with the lift.
Thanks for the question and the photos. Best wishes.
