Do I need a lift?
Your breasts have Grade C ptosis which is the most advanced so if you want perky breasts the answer is a resounding yes. They are certainly large enough so no implant is necessary. If the sag is not an issue for you then don't do anything.
Balancing your shape with a lift
Looking at your photos, I think an uplift will work nicely
Some surgeons suggest having breast implants to avoid an uplift. I think you cannot choose this option (unless you want to have huge huge implants! These will drop down very quickly in any case, so definitely a bad idea).
After an uplift only, the breasts often look and feel smaller, so you might want to consider implants as well if you think this will be an issue for you. Try on a non-padded sports bra and look at the size of your breasts. If they are big enough, then an uplift only is a good option. If too small, maybe combine an uplift with implants. If they are too big, then a breast reduction is for you.

You may be a candidate for breast lift if you are looking to improve the shape of your breasts and have more fullness to the upper part of your breasts.

Correcting Breast Sag
Your pictures suggest significant breast sag which would benefit from a breast lift utilizing an anchor incision.
Each patient has unique aesthetic goals and specific anatomic findings that must be considered when making decisions about this type of surgery. For instance, in some cases, decreasing breast size may be a consideration and breast reduction should be part of the procedure. In other cases, patients may want larger breasts. Under these circumstances it may be appropriate to add a breast implant to increase breast volume.
Based on your concerns, consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is appropriate. This surgeon will help you determine which option is best for you.
