Breast Lift After Massive Weight Loss
It is important you know that the "Plastic Surgery After Massive Weight Loss", it's a Plastic Surgery Sub-specialty, responsible for correcting the excessive sagging skin of different body areas, caused by a massive weight loss in a short time, in a special kind of patient, because can be exist comorbidities due to obesity.
In my experience, I have had very good results performing the Round Block Breast Lift (Benelli) with silicone implants for cases like yours: with a significant breast fall and sagging skin, as a result of massive weight loss.
My recommendation to you is to perform the Breast Lift with silicone implants using Benelli technique, and only if necessary, extend the scar ("lollipop" or "anchor").
Finally, I recommend be treated by certified plastic surgeon, with special training in Plastic Surgery After Massive Weight Loss. Therefore, it will use different surgical techniques and special safety measures for the ex obese patient.

Benelli lift may be not the best option for you.
Thank you for your question.
I personally use Benelli only for small uplifts. In your case it would leave you with flat "tomato" looking breast.
Benelli scars have more tendency to stretch with time compared to other techniques, which can be aesthetically unpleasant. You would also experience skin wrinkling around areola and it would take a while to settle down.
Lollipop or anchor lift plus implant would work much better for you.
Breast lift technique
Given your weight loss you have a lot of extra skin. The technique for lifting your breasts will be customized depending on the amount of extra skin after the implant is placed. The larger the implant the less the redundant skin.
I would expect a lollipop or an anchor if you choose a modest implant.

What type of breast lift do I need?
Straight Answers from Dr. Louton
In order to correct the ptosis or droopiness a lift is necessary. In order to restore the volume an implant is necessary.
I anticipate that you will need a lift/augmentation. And that the lift portion will at the very least require a lollipop type incision.I hope this helps.
