Breast lift and implant considerations
Big Implants Won't Center Your Nipples
Unfortunately, many women with breast ptosis or sagging undergo breast augmentation with large implants expecting to look 'perky', frequently because they were told by their surgeon that would suffice. This is a mistake, because no matter the size of the implant, the nipple and breast tissue won't magically rotate up into a pleasing position on the mound, but instead will remain low under the implant. Large implants frequently leave women larger than they wanted to be as well. Additionally, with time these large implants drift downward as the breast tissue expands.
You should visit a few surgeons that are expert in all forms of cosmetic breast surgery, not just implants. Discuss your goals by reviewing photos together. Avoid talking about cup sizes. In the end you will be happier.
Best of luck!

You will need an one on one examination. Size and shape of breasts can often play a critical role in a woman’s self-esteem. Fuller and bigger breasts are often associated with reproducibility therefore it is a desired condition. There are different kinds of breast augmentation operation types. Breast augmentation can be performed either with breast implants or autologous fat transfer. There are also different types of breast implants like teardrop or round implants. These implants also can be placed under or above the muscle. As you can imagine there are several different options for breast augmentation. The best way to understand which one is more suitable for you is to get a physical examination by a plastic surgeon.

Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery ( regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you are looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.
2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals.
In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. For example, I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or "C or D cup” etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful.
Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on him who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate. Again, the use of computer imaging has been very helpful during the communication process, in our practice.
3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your plastic surgeon to use his/her years of experience/judgment to choose the breast implant size/profile that will best meet your goals. Again, in my practice, this decision is usually made during surgery, after the use of temporary intraoperative sizers.
I hope this (and the attached link, dedicated to breast augmentation surgery concerns) helps. Best wishes for an outcome that you will be very pleased with.

Lift or no lift ?
The definitive answer here is a resounding: maybe ! IN person exams are paramount to aid in making these types of decisions. Unfortunately the photo you submit, although very artistic, is not helpful in making any recommendations here.
You need an in person evaluation from an experienced board certified plastic surgeon to provide you with options and recommendations for you specifically. Best of luck
