Slightly saggy breasts. Could I get away with augmentation only, and no lift?
Thank you for your question and photos, Breast Augmentation only is not enough, Breast sagging that occurs with age, weight fluctuations and pregnancy may couse aesthetic problems and lack of confidence. Breast lifting surgery is intended to correct sagging and providing increased lift, position and firmness.
Sagging can be fixed also by incisionless way of skin tightening, The Spider Web Technique. By Spider Web Technique, dozens of threads that will mellt away in time placed via very fine needlles under the skin trigges body itself to produce collagen and cell regenation. The cell regenation and collagene production results with tighening and regeneration of skin. The Spider Web Technique can also be combined with other surgery applications.
A Combination Lift-Augmentation Is Probably Best
Lift & Implants
Based on your photos, I think you will get your best result from implants + lift. If you have lost a lot of weight, I would doubly recommend the lift as well as the implants.
Whilst you can try to fill your existing breast skin envelope with implants only, your resulting shape and position of your nipple on your chest wall will be suboptimal.

Augmentation with lift?
In-person examination or more views of your body will be needed to give you a more accurate assessment and surgical recommendation.
Based on your frontal view of the chest, your result may be better with lift.
You should have an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon so that he/she can examine you and understand your goal.
Breast augmentation and/or breast lift?
Breasts augmentation with mini lift
Thanks for submitting your picture. From observing your picture, you appears to have B cup size with level 2 ptosis (moderate ) and large areolas.
I see many patients like yourself on a weekly basis , since it is very common condition after weight loss or having children.
After being over 28 years in plastic surgery practice and performing thousands of breasts augmentation surgeries, I can tell you that the best option for you is breasts augmentation with implants and at the same time have mini lift (donut ) procedure (since you do not want vertical scar ).
This technique will give you beautiful and perky breasts with smaller and more attractive areolas. The scars are placed right at the border of the areola that separates the dark color from the white color of the skin. This is a natural line and the scar with the pleats fade after 3-4 months. This is a good trade off for beautiful breasts.
Breasts augmentation alone will be a very disappointing compromise and might result in severe ptosis and possibly double bubble. These complication will have heavy financial consequences due to the necessary corrective surgery.
So, do your due diligence and choose wisely.
Always, consult with experienced board certified plastic surgeons who do lots of breasts augmentation with a lift , in accredited surgery center for your safety. Check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery, to make sure that they are numerous, consistent, symmetrical and natural looking. Also, check the 'realself' reviews for positive experience reports.
Best of luck.
