I want my implants removed. I was a 34A and I'm a 34D now. Can I get a binelli lift with the removal to help with saggy skin?

Removing implants and saggy skin
Breast implants give the illusion of perkiness by filling out the breast and filling in the upper pole of the breast. A breast lift does not give forward projection or fill in the upper pole. A Binelli lift is not a true lift of the breast and will do little beyond repositioning or resizing the areola.
Since you are certain you don't want implants then I would opt for the simple removal and allow the breasts to settle back and then see what you want to consider. I would recommend a plastic surgeon that is experienced with true lift (mastopexy) procedures and not rely on simulations of a lift with procedures like "crescent", "periareolar', "donut", or Benelli lifts.
Breast Implant Removal
If you have saline, we would deflate your implants in the office by suctioning out all the saline with a small needle stick. Then you can be correctly evaluated to see if you need a breast lift. Some doctors do like to "two-stage" the surgeries, but this method replaces a removal procedure with simply an office procedure. The implants are easily removed when and IF you have your lift. Be sure to see only a board certified plastic surgeon (by ABPS - The American Board of Plastic Surgery) who is a member of ASAPS (The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) and or a member of ASPS (The American Society of Plastic Surgeons). All the best, "Dr. Joe"

My guess - and it's hard to say without photos - is that it will be difficult for you to get a perky shape without implants unless you do more of a lift than can be accomplished with a Benelli-type procedure (a "donut" or circumareolar mastopexy, or breast lift). There is simply a limit to what can be accomplished without having the somewhat more extensive scarring that, truly, nobody wants.
If you'd consider smaller implants then you may have more options in terms of the incisions.
I hope that this helps and good luck,
