Young people droop, too!
Your breast appearance is certainly within the realm of normal and it is not uncommon for younger patients to have some drooping. If you go to an experienced aesthetic breast surgeon, he or she will be able to go over a number of options with you and choose a technique which will meet your aesthetic goals.

Skin Elasticity and a Breast Lift
That is an excellent question in regards to breast surgery and frankly all Plastic Surgery. Skin elasticity is the ability of skin to stretch but also to spring back. It varies greatly from one person to another and worsens with age and child bearing. Elasticity is also a major factor in the breast tissues itself and is one of the issues Plastic Surgeons must take into account when planning any Breast Surgery. With respect to your situation without a detailed examination I am unable assure you what would be your best option. All breast lifts come with a compromise in the form of a visible permanent scar. It is likely that your best option would be a Binelli Periareolar lift with an appropriately sized implant. This would limit the incision to around the areola and many of these heal very well with minimal scar visibility.When you visit a Plastic Surgeon confirm that they are Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and are very experienced in all types of Breast Lifting techniques.

Your skin quality seems to be quite good; this is actually a positive when it comes to the results of surgery achievable. Patients with very thin skin are at greater risk for a variety of complications.
When the time is right, seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience achieving the types of outcomes you would be pleased with. Then communicate your goals carefully as well. In our practice, this is best done with the help of goal photographs and computer imaging. Best wishes.
