Breast Lift with Implants
Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast tissue and reshapes the contour of the breasts so that they are smaller and perkier. I commonly use a minimal incision technique (Le Jour), eliminating the need for large scars while providing a pleasing breast contour and shape that is proportionate to the patient's body. During a consultation, the doctor should show you images reflecting the results of the procedure you’re considering, and seeing the photos can give you a sense of a surgeon’s aesthetics. I also do computer imaging, which allows us to photograph you and then immediately manipulate your features onscreen, so that you have an idea of a procedure’s “after effect.” Although you won’t come out looking exactly as you do on screen, your resulting image helps with decision making.
With kind regards,

Breasts after breastfeeding
From the photo you posted, it appears that you have enough breast tissue of your own to get an excellent result from a breast lift alone which can give you higher, fuller looking breasts. You can also add an implant to the lift to give you even more height and firmness in your breasts.

Breast Augmentation - Do I Need A Lift?
Thank you for your inquiry regarding the aesthetics of your breast. Before embarking on any procedure it is good to understand the principles of what we are trying to achieve.
In order to lift the breast we can either add volume, remove skin and reshape, or both.
Whatever procedure is chosen it will leave you with a scar around the Areola , vertically down words and on the underside of the breast.
The first thing to decide would be whether you wish to reduce the size of your breasts or not and the second would be whether you are happy to use an implant or not depending on what your aesthetic objectives are.
You appear to have enough volume to simply do a lift procedure called a mastopexy but the decision on whether or not to use an implant would depend on how much fullness you want in the upper pole of the breast. If you do not wish to get involved in implants then the best thing would be a simple mastopexy using your breast tissue and reshaping it and removing skin to bring the nipple into the right position and improve the projection of your breasts. If you wish for your breast to be smaller at the same time this is also possible.

Try Breast Lift On Its Own
You appear to have enough natural breast volume to get good results from a lift without an augmentation. I believe this will give you the perky, full look you'd like without adding any additional volume. However, it's best to wait until an in-person consultation can confirm your eligibility before making a decision. The surgeon you see may have more valuable insight after examining you in person. Best of luck!
If you are happy with the size/volume of your breasts, but unhappy with the sagging you may want to consider a breast lift without an implant. This procedure can bring the position of the nipple up and give you a fuller look. An implant may not be necessary depending on your surgical goals.
Breast implants are not necessary for a good result from breast lift or mastopexy.
