Breast augmentation and a lift

+1
Dear blackcat,
   Thanks for sumitting your picture. From observing your picture, you have a very severe droopiness of your breasts ( level 3 ). Under these circumstances, I would recommend a breast augmentation with a full lift ( key hole ) for optimal result. A mini lift procedure with augmentation is a compromize but can be acceptable according to the physical examination and your willing to accept less than optimal result since you are so young. Breast augmentation alone , even with  big implants will be very un attractive and I personally will refuse to do it. Always, consult with board certfied plastic surgeons and check their before and after pictures to make sure that you like the results.
               Best of luck,

Breast Lift

+1
Based on the photo you have provided, I would recommend a lift. You have enough tissue in your breasts to achieve a good result with a lift alone. Whether the lift is combined with implants or not depends on how much volume you would like.

Based on your photo, I would definitely offer you a lift.  In my opinion, the real question is whether you need an augment.  With a lift, the internal tissue can be moved higher and you have a lot of tissue to do this.  It will depend on your goals.  See a BC PS in your area.
Best,

Breast augmentation with lift

Based on the photo provided I would have to recommend a lift with breast implant which will give you the best long term result.  Consult with a plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your optioons.

Thank you for the question and pictures.

In your case I do believe that a breast lift would benefit your breast, an implant would definitely give yu volume and enhancement as well.

Is a lift required?

+1
Based on the photos provided, I would say that a lift is definitely required.  Implants without a lift would result in an unacceptable appearance.  Please seek consultation with a qualified Plastic Surgeon.  Best of luck!

If you just have implants your breasts will look the same, the nipples pointing south... Best to think about a lift+implants. See a few boarded PSs in your city/state..//

You need to have lift

Your picture show low nipple and your breast tissue touching chest wall. Implant will give you bigger breast ,but more sagging.

Implants versus Implants PLUS Lift

+1
Based on your pictures, it appears that you would achieve the best results with an augmentation plus a mastopexy (lift).  The reason is that placing implants does not "lift" the breasts, it only adds volume.  The lift, will help improve the shape and reposition the nipple/areola complex to a more youthful position. 

Good Luck.

Lift

+1

The short answer is that implants do not lift anything and you would benefit from a lift.  If the nipple is below the bottom of the breast( which yours is) then you would benefit from a lift with or without implants
