What type of breast lift will work best for my breast? And will a fat transfer work better than a implant?
The breasts may lose their elasticity and firmness which can be caused by different factors such as pregnancy, massive weight loss, lactation and aging. To reaffirm the breasts and restore the natural look your surgeon can perform a mastopexy or breast lift. A breast lift restores a firmer, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging breasts. This not only can improve a patient’s appearance by restoring her youthful, feminine proportions, but also help bras and swimsuits fit more comfortably and attractively. By removing excess, stretched out skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and raising the nipple & areola into a more forward position, a cosmetic surgeon can create a more youthful breast contour. Stretched, large areolae can also be reduced during breast lift surgery, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast, Actually the perkiness on a person or another, depends on patients skin and breast tissue!
Breast lift and implants
Thank you for this question and the pictures demonstrating your concerns. The issues that you would like to have corrected include elevating the nipples, reducing the size of the areolae, and restoring the volume that you lost after pregnancy. Based upon your pictures and your questions, a breast lift and breast augmentation with implants would be the operations for you. I don't think that you have enough fat on the rest of your body to provide an adequate breast augmentation. If I was going to perform your surgery I would probably use a lollipop incision for the breast lift, but I would need to measure your breasts and chest wall before deciding on what size and style implant I would recommend. A complete evaluation by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon should answer your questions more completely.
Breast augmentation and lift candidate, some advices:
After having analyzed all the information and photos provided to us, I realize that you have very sagging and small breasts. In this regard, you need volume (implants) and projection (the lift): Breast Augmentation w/Breast Lift.
I recommend you to use microtexturized highly cohesive silicon implant ("gummy bear" implants), with high projection, and 550ml will be excelent on you, to fill the breasts properly.
Finally, to perform the breast lift I recommend a Periareolar Round Block Breast Lift ("Benelli mastopexy"), which has an unnoticed scar around the areola, and if we see (in the surgery) that we can't obtain adecuate projection just with the Benelli Lift, we have to perform a "Lollipop breast lift".

An exam and consultation with a plastic surgeon is recommended to discuss your options and expectations.
Breast lift with volume addition
You must have a breast lift (which also reduces the size of the areolas). The volume deficit can be addressed with a small to medium implant depending on your desire. I am not a fan of fat transfer to the breasts. It is not as reliable as using an implant which adds a fixed permanent volume.
Best of luck.
Full lift with implant
I recommend a formal mastopexy with An anchor scar and a moderate plus implant placed under the muscle. Best of luck !!
