Implant alone or implants needed?
Hello and thank you for your question.
It's difficult to say from your pictures, particularly because they were taken with your arms up in the air. It appears as though some degree of lift may be necessary along with augmentation. I recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is performed.
Best of luck to you

Augment alone or lift?
Based upon your photos you are weight appropriate,but have excess loose skin in the breasts and in the abdomen. You look like a good candidated for full breast lift and full tummy tuck and possibly breast augmentation for upper pole fullness. Yes, sadly these surgeries leave scars, so you have to decide if the scars are worth the trade off. Only a physical exam by a plastic surgeon can guide you fully, but I think that based on what I am seeing smaller measures will not do enough.
I do believe that by placing an implant it will raise your breast to make them fuller. I suggest a high profile gel implant, 350-375 cc.
Breast lift needed?
Is a lift needed?
It is very diffiuclt to make a comment based on your photos that you based alone. Your surgeon will take measurements of your chest wall, assess your breast shape and nipple position, and the quality of your breast skin to determine if a lift of any sort is required. Hopefully a dual plane breast augmentation is all that will be needed. Please see a board certified PS to learn more about your options.
