I'm 25 with two children that I breast feed and I'm want a breast augmentation without a lift and I just need some advice on what I should do. Want a large breast, maybe like 600cc in each one!
Breast Implant Options for Saggy Breasts Without Breast Lift? (photos)

Longer, Lower, Heavier Breasts
This is the most common question I get in my office and the answer is simple. It depends on you. I divide the patients into 3 categories.
1. Patient who only need implants. For these patients, the easiest way to determine what they want is based on a "wish pic." Try to find a picture of someone who has a similar body to you beforehand. Discussions about cup size or how natural or unnatural rarely help. I even had a patient tell me she wants completely natural breast in the C cup range just like Pamela Anderson.
2. Patients who can have a lift or just an implant. I have found 50% want the former and 50% want the latter. Their nipples may sit at or just above the inframammary fold. For the ones that want a lift, they usually specifically say they want their nipples to be higher and the whole breast to sit higher on their chests. For the one who only want an implant, they usually don't care about the nipple position and prefer to have large implants without the extra scars from a lift. These patients may be little saggy but their wish pictures are also someone who is a little saggy and they like the "natural" appearance of tear-dropped shaped breasts.
3. Patients who need a lift. Their nipples may be below the inframammary fold or pointing down. Usually these patients also need an implant.
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!

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.
