I'm getting breast augmentation and was told that I needed a lift also. I really don't want a lift. What is your opinion?

You do have a fair amount of excess skin and your nipples need to be lifted a great deal. I agree that in order to achieve the best result you need a lift combined with an implant. Good luck!
Lift or no lift
lookign at your photos, i would strongly recommend a breast lift with your implant surgery. The relation of your breast tissue and nipple complex to your breast fold is such that having just an implant is going to give you large low hanging and eventually saggy breasts. I would imagine what you want is high, jiggily , perky breasts- something only achieveable iwth a breast lift and implants in your case.
I hope this helps
To achieve great results, you need a breast lift and an understanding of the operation and its risks.
Your photos strongly suggest that you need a breast lift operation to have more pleasing breast shapes.
Breast implants, alone, would be a disservice if your nipples are below the breast crease folds. This can be confirmed at the time of your plastic surgical consultation.
Breast implants (gel or saline) can be placed at the time of the lifts, or if you are unsure, after the lifts have healed.
t have to and Never 'not do a lift' when you have to.". No doubt...you need a lift, but it is the only way to achieve a balanced breast appearance. You simply have to accept that, because, you would not be happy with larger droopy breast.
In my opinion, I do believe that your outcome with out a lift would not benefit you at all. I suggest an anchor incision breast lift and the placement of an implant in order to get volume and to enhance your breast.
Breast Augmentation and Mastopexy
In some women, the breast and nipple hangs below the breast fold. If an augmentation (implant) alone is performed, the breast will hang over the implant. The implant will remain higher on the chest than the breast.
The goal of breast augmentation is to line up the implant and the breast so that they project together at the same level. The scar for a breast lift is generally a lollipop configuration: Around the nipple and vertically towards the breast fold.
The most common implant type and location is a smooth silicone implant placed beneath the muscle. This implant combined with a breast lift will provide youthful and "perky" breasts.
