Dropping after breast lift
It sounds like your tissue is predisposed to stretch. I think you need more than just a skin resection to fully solve the recurrent issue. I would recommend using a dermal template such as Alloderm, Strattice, or FlexHD to resuspend the implant and add long lasting support. Unfortunately, this material will add cost, but I think it would be less expensive in the long run.

I'm sorry that you are having problems with your breast lift. Based soley on your pictures it looks like you might need to have the vertical limb of your mastopexy shortened. An in person exam would be required to determine where the implant sits in relation to the crease under your breast. I would suggest that you get a couple of consultations with board certified plastic surgeons.
