Implants do not restore perkiness

Breast implants for perky pre-baby breast appearance
Thank you for your question and photograph. From your photographs it appears that breast augmentation alone with breast implants will certainly restore volume and projection to your breasts.
However you need to have an in person exam and evaluation by a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in cosmetic breast surgery and who has an excellent reputation in your community.
You do have glandular ptosis which means some sagging of the skin below the nipple areola and if you want the breast to be truly lifted which means the nipple placed higher and the sagging skin below the nipple less sagging then you may need a breast lift.
Breast Augmenation Candidate
You are an excellent candidate for breast augmentation only. If you would like conservative augmentation smaller implants or anatomically shaped implants would give you a more natural result. An in person exam would be necessary to be more precise. Best wishes.

I do believe that by placing a 375- 400 cc's round high profile gel implants under the muscle will definitely get you back to those great looking breast you had before pregnancy. If you are having more children, I would recommend for you to get the surgery after all pregnancies.
Pre-baby "perkiness" back through implants alone?
There are multiple options that can produce a cosmetically acceptable result depending on your desired outcome: an implant alone in front of the muscle or a dual plane placement of the implant, an implant and a minimal lift with an incision just around the areola, or an implant in front of the muscle, dual plane or behind the muscle and a greater lift. Each would result in a different degree of improvement.
Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do based on limited two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling your tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medicalhistory and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best sinterest. Natural appearing results need to be individualized and what is appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon certified by the American Board ofAmerican Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
