Will implants without a lift work for me? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 17
Simple Check: "Do I need a lift?"
If your goal is "nice, large, round" breasts, then a dual plane augmentation with implants in the 500cc range will provide you with what you are looking for; keep in mind that you will be able to look *Great* in a bikini but may have some drooping of the breasts over the implant when you are naked.
Many women do not want scars on the breast, and I prefer not to place scars on the breast. A lift does require, in your case, a lollipop scar around the nipple and down the front of the breast.
If you are willing to tolerate slight drooping of the breast (a more "mature" breast appearance) then implants alone will suffice. If you want "perky" breasts with no drooping, then you will absolutely need a lift and augmentation (mastopexy-aug).
In some cases I will perform an augmentation and then a subsequent breast lift in a different procedure should the patient be displeased with the nipple position after the augmentation alone.

Breast implants plus breast lift will give you the best result
If you have a sub-muscular breast augmentation the implant will be held higher and could push your nipple lower into what is called a snoopy deformity. You could have a Sub-glandular breast augmentation without a lift but again that would create a droopy breast appearance and you might lack fullness above the nipple.
Your best option is a breast lift with a sub-muscular augmentation mammoplasty especially if you want to look your best and your bikini competition.
