Am I the right candidate for breast implants alone or would I also need a breast lift?

Lifting with breast implants
Imagine a partially deflated balloon tacked against a wall. Much like you see at a carnival dart toss.
Now, imagine inflating the balloon. You can imagine how it would lift off that wall somewhat. So even though no specific maneuvers are being done to lift that balloon, it will rise slightly just due to the reinflation.
The same thing happens with the breast implant. The degree of lift is slight, usually only about 1-2 cm. This may be all you need, it may not be. That depends upon a visit with a board-certified plastic surgeon. If you do need a lift, it is far better to accept the scars with the procedure, which will fade with time, rather than a poorly-shaped breast with the breast tissue hanging off the implant unnaturally.
Best of luck!

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 400-450ml 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".
