Type of Breast Lift
In the end, the question you are asking is at the heart of your decision. If you can tolerate a scar, your breasts have an appearance that would do well with a lift because you have a fair amount of tissue in the upper half. If you cannot, it is likely that supportive bras can get you where you want to be most of the time.
Only way to lift a breast is with scars
But if a breast lift is performed you will have scars, how good or bad will depend primarily on the way your body heals and secondarily in the surgeon you choose. You need to talk to your board certified plastic surgeon and be sure to see before and after pictures, pay special attention to the side view, you already have a relatively long lower pole of your breast, if a vertical incision is use you may continue to have a long lower pole, which in my opinion is not cosmetically pleasing.
Remember the American Board of Plastic Suregry is the only plastic surgery board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
Breast lift scars
Your question is right on. Scars vs Saggy. The choice has to be your. However, lets talk about the scars. Not all scars are the same. There are different techniques performed that result in different quality scars. A lot of lifts performed today that rely on the skin result in poor scarring. On the other hand, when the lift performed puts very little tension on the skin, the scars are often imperceptible in time. In my opinion if you are looking for a perkier look, a vertical breast lift along with implants would give you look with quite acceptable scars.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of breast lifts each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
