Implants versus breast lift?
Just an implant...
Breast implants might be sufficient

You would be an excellent candidate for a dual plane BA. No need for the extensive incisions of a lift. Please put an index card in your breast fold. If your nipple is at the edge of the card or below, then you would be a candidate for a lift, either a vertical or anchor or areolar incision. If your nipple is above the edge, you could be a candidate for an internal lift called the dual plane. The video below explains the dual plane internal lift. I also attached an article from a peer-reviewed journal to give you an even better idea. I believe the dual plane and implants alone will do it for you, and that you will not need a lift. Be sure to seek a consultation with a BC PS to be sure. All the best, “Dr. Joe”
Best of luckk,
Make sure you consult with a reputable PS who is well reviewed.
Hard for me to exactly predict without exam but it looks like you should be fine without a lift. That said, I would suggest that you can go ahead with a breast augmentation (get the size that you want, don't be talked into the "get them larger than you want to avoid a lift, and get them over the muscle" arguments). You will likely be happy. If the nipple location isn't acceptable to you, you can revisit the need for a lift in 6 months to a year.
