Breast Lift Plus Implants Will Improve Your Mommy Makepover Result
Thank you for your question.
From your photo you have Breast Ptosis and a Breast Lift is the proper procedure. Implants in addition will improve the result.
If you have a lift alone you will likely feel unhappy with the fullness of the breast above the nipple and the breast will be less firm, more "jiggly" in a bra. Most commonly women choose both Breast Lift and Implants along with a Tummy Tuck for a Mommy Makeover.
you appear to have enough volume here and i dont think the implants are a must. the smaller implants with the lift give better upper pole fullness. you can always have the implants placed as secondary procedure if you want them later
Breast lift with or without implants
It all depends upon your desired aesthetic goals. You'll get a nice shape with a breast lift, but if you want more cleavage and upper breast volume then you'll probably need implants. Good luck! Dr. Schreiber, Baltimore plastic surgeon

What are your goals?
I suggest staying with the BL & TT
Based on your pictures and D cup, I think you have plenty of breast volume. A breast lift will make them perky, and a tummy tuck will actually make them seem larger (as it pulls in the stomach). I don’t think you should consider an augmentation. Wait till you have recovered from the Lift and Tummy Tuck, and then you can decide if you really want more breast volume.
Should I get implants with my lift?
Really, the answer to your question depends on your goals. In addition to lifting your breasts, do you want more volume? If you are already a 40D and feel you are happy with your size currently but not with your sagging, my suggestion would be to proceed with your lift first. Get the sagging correct and reassess. You may have enough tissue to give you a great result without an implant. After you've had your sagging corrected, you can always opt for a breast implant later if you want to be fuller in size. In fact, you actually may get better results doing your lift and augmentation in two different stages. Best wishes!
Breast Lift or Breast Lift with Implants
Based on your photos, you are an excellent candidate for Breast Lift surgery. You appear to have plenty of breast tissue for a great result. Go for it! Best wishes!
They are right!
You have plenty of tissue in your breasts to get a good result with the appropriate lift technique! When you re abdomen gets smaller from the abdominoplasty the breasts get proportionally larger. Adding implants will increase size and volume that can make you look heavier, which is what you are trying to avoid!
Breast lift with or without implants?
Great decision on having your mommy make over! From looking at your breast you have great breast tissue, you would only need a breast lift. It all depends on the desired volume and fullness . If you would like a larger volume and more cleavage only then should a small implant be used. Good luck!

Thank you for the photos and congratulations on your decision to have a Mommy Makeover! From your photos, it appears that you have enough of your own breast tissue to achieve a nice result with a breast lift alone. It really depends on what you are expecting. If you desire upper pole fullness and more cleavage (which most women want) then I would suggest a small implant. Remember that you can always add an implant later! ac
