All the best,
Breast Lift is Often Advised with Augmentation
The intentional result of a Breast Lift (#Mastopexy) is to improve the shape and position of the breast without reducing their size. It is used especially for breasts which sag or droop (#ptosis) as a result of aging, weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. However, many women report more satisfaction if an implant is used at the time of #mastopexy. The implants further shape their breasts, restoring superior fullness or volume which may be decreased over time.
In regards to implants alone, this is usually said to be mistake by patients reflecting back at the decision. Most breasts will look larger and more droopy with solely implants. They will sag more and sooner, due to the sudden and excess weight. At times it's possible for a “Snoopy” breast or double bubble to develop as a result

Thank you for your question and photos. Because you have shown a wish picture with breasts not much larger in volume, but lifted and perkier, I think you will be more likely to achieve the results you are after with a breast lift and perhaps a small, lower profile implant. Your existing scars can be used and minor asymmetry corrected as well.

Breast augment post breast reduction as teen
Looking at your photos I believe your best option to achieve the look of the goal photo would be to choose a round moderate projection implant and tighten your prior breast reduction scars. You already have these scars so you would not require any new scars. The added lift will help you avoid moving into a larger implant range to get more lift. It doesn't look like you aim to be much bigger, just fuller.
And your breasts will look relatively larger if your abdomen will be smaller with tummy tuck
Best of luck!
