From your photos, you appear to need a breast lift. This would reposition your nipples and reshape your breasts, giving them a more youthful appearance. Breast augmentation would would give you more volume. So you would have a nice result from both procedures. I would recommend you go on a few more consultations with other board certified plastic surgeons in your area so you can find a surgeon that you have good, clear communication with and move forward with your surgery.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!

Thank you for your question. Based on your photos, I would agree that a breast lift would be best in conjunction with breast implants to reshape the breasts. Implants alone will not likely give you a pleasant result. However, if you do not wish to have a lift at this time then don't have one.
It sounds as if you do not have good, clear communication with your Plastic Surgeon so I would recommend that you proceed with your surgery when you feel that you have found a surgeon and plan that you are happy with.
All the best
Choosing the right Surgeon and procedures
Augment plus lift with questions about surgeon
Based on your pictures without a physical exam, it seems that you are a good candidate for a augmentation and a lift. There are other options, but that would likely give you the best result.
As for your concerns about your surgeon, if you don't like and don't trust your surgeon, why are you going to them? Being able to openly discuss your feeling with your surgeon is an important part of the pre and the post surgical routine.
If you can't communicate with this surgeon, it may be a sign to get a second opinion.
Good luck in your journey.
Breast augmentation alone will not give you pleasing results
Thank you for your question and photos.
Your PS is correct in advising a breast lift along with your augmentation. Augmentation alone (especially if placed over the muscle) will not be aesthetically pleasing in your case. Also, pregnancy has a tendency to change shape and volume of breasts. You will be better served to wait to have surgery.

Mastopexy/augmentation and surgeon selection
you need both a lift and Augmentation.
Based on your comments and feelings I would not use this Plastic Surgeon.
Please make several appointments with experienced Plastic Surgeons who listens to your specific desires and who are not only Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery but in addition ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (denoting by membership as having met additional criteria and a focus on Cosmetic Plastic Surgery).
My best wishes,

You definitely need to trust your surgeon, and feel that he has your best interests at heart. If you don't feel that way, or if you don't feel that your surgeon can communicate with you, then you should visit some other surgeons. They will also tell you that you need a lift, but you may interact with them better. Best of luck!
