Longer, Lower, Heavier Breasts
As I think all the surgeons have stated, a breast implant alone will result in a longer, lower, and heavier breast that will be harder to correct as time goes by. A lift is a trade of the scars for a better size and shape and if you don't like the tradeoff, it's better to do no surgery at all.
A lift with implants may be necessary to achieve your goals.
Thank you for your question and photos. I can completely understand the desire to avoid a breast lift and just have an augmentation. However, if a lift is truly needed but not included with the addition of implants, you will likely be dissatisfied with the results. Based on your photos, you already have a significant amount of sagging and the additional weight of implants can exacerbate the problem, particularly if you want very large implants. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to thoroughly discuss your options, but I suspect that the only course of action you’ll ultimately be happy with is a lift/augmentation combination. Best of luck!
Mastopexy with Augmentation
Thank you for your question. It appears to me that you would greatly benefit from a lift with breast implants. The implants will also look much more natural with the mastopexy (lift). As always, please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Best of luck!
You will need breast lift for good results from breast surgery
You will not have good results just from implants. 600 cc implants will overstretch your skin and will be harmful in long term. Have a breast lift with reasonable sized implants.
Implants do not lift the breast. Possibly initially they may feel a little lifted but over a short time they will be just larger, heavier breasts. Possibly even more sagging noted over time as well. Think about it like this... Your skin couldn't support your native breast tissue... it most likely will not be able to support 600 additional cc of weight. Your should find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in breast surgery. They will have more experience with breast lifting both with and without implants. Best of Luck to you.
Implants unfortunately do not lift the breast and can actually cause more droop due to stretching of the tissue and the weight of the implant. It is important to see a plastic surgeon so he can exam you and explain the issues with your breast and what will work the best.
Breast augmentation surgery
Thanks for your question. It's very common after breastfeeding and pregnancy to have some deflation of the breasts. A breast augmentation with implants will be able to add volume, however it will not correct skin excess or skin stretching on its own. The best option to help treat saggy skin is with a use of a breast lift that can be combined with implants if you so choose. Best of luck, and I hope this helps.
Correcting Deflated Sagging Breasts
A sagging Deflated breast cannot be corrected by the addition of s breast implant. While such an implant would add some volume and correct some of the deflation it could never adequately lift the breast but WILL result in thinning of the bottom of the breast and cause a worsening of the sag. The only way to correct the sag is to perform a Breast Lift with or without implants.

Breast Implant Options for Saggy Breasts Without Breast Lift?
Implants alone do not adequately lift the breast when there is significant sagging, no matter the size or the type, and will not produce a good cosmetic result in a patient who also needs some variation of a lift.
Keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to do without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative procedure would not be in your best interest.
I would suggest your plastic surgeon be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and 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 and be very realistic about your potential cosmetic result.

Is Breast Implant the solution?
Your photos show that your breasts have a sagging shape and the nipple position is low. This is very common after having children and breast feeding. Yes, you may want more breast volume and an implant will help, but the implant will not correct the nippl position. I understand that you may not want the scars of a lift but you will probably have more issues with a sagging breast with heavy large implants. In my practice I see women with the same issues and they are very happy after having a lift with an implant. Good luck and see a board certified plastic surgeon to get an opinion.
