Options for perky look to breasts after breastfeeding
One option is to place small breast implants along with a lollipop lift to get a perkier, more youthful look that is not too much larger than your current size. You should have stopped breast feeding for at least 4-6 months so that your surgeon has a true picture of your breasts.
One can never guarantee that you can breast feed after surgery, but most likely you will be able to do this.
You should visit a Board certified plastic surgeon to discuss all your options.

Thanks for providing photos. From these, it appears that you have a nice amount of breast volume and your nipples are high enough that you really don't need a breast lift. In my opinion, placing a reasonably-sized silicone gel implant beneath the muscle should help replace lost volume, improve your perkiness, and still preserve your ability to breast feed.
I hope that helps and wish you the very best. Please let us know if we can be of any help. Would love to work with you!

"Perky breasts" and breast feeding
Thank you for your question!
A breast implant alone will give more superior fullness and often restores the loss of volume at the top of the breast which is often seen after breast feeding. An implant will give more overall volume and will to a degree lift the breast giving a more "perky" look.
Based on the photos you are sharing, I would anticipate that an implant alone may give you the needed lift, but a breast lift could be done at the time of the breast implant placement or as a staged procedure later if needed.
While a risk, usually, breast feeding after surgery is not a problem.
Your plastic surgeon should be able to discuss this risk and his/her experience with it.
