Is a breast lift required?
It depends on how much larger you want to go.
It is possible to correct your ptosis (drooping) with implants only, if you add enough volume.
You need to have sizing done by your Plastic Surgeon (i.e. trying on different size implants to decide what is right for you). I you only want a moderate breast augmentation, a mastopexy (lift) is probably also going to be needed.
This is a judgement issue. You need an experienced Plastic Surgeon.
Best wishes. Don't take your surgeons comments personally.
