Be aware that the right breast is larger and lower in this asymmetry will be more obvious once the breasts are enlarged. I would also expect the right breast implant to drop sooner and further than the left side.

Thanks for submitting your pictures. From observing your pictures , you appear to be small A cup size with very mild ptosis, however, your areolas are quite large and will get larger with implants due to stretching.
So, the lift issue is your personal preference. I had patients with similar situation to your who wanted their breasts very perky , like before they had children and requested mini lift (donut). Additionally, the procedure will reduce your areolas to more attractive size and will prevent them from getting bigger, due to the stretching by the implants.
As far as implants size, you did not provide us with your chest circumference in inches , which is critical for the correct implant size selection. Let's assume that you are presently 32 small A cup size. To become 32 small D , you will need implants with volume of 375 cc. For 34 small D - 450 cc implants.
In regard to implants type, you really don't need HP implants. I have been in practice for 29 years and performed breasts augmentation with implants on thousands of patients. I use almost exclusively smooth, round, moderate profile saline implants to the delight of my patients.
You have to realize that not all results are the same, because experience, skills and aesthetic eye are critical for good and satisfying outcome. So, do your due diligence and choose wisely.
Always, consult with experienced board certified plastic surgeons who operate in accredited surgery center for your safety. Most importantly, check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery, to make sure that they are numerous, consistent and attractive with nice cleavage, perky, symmetrical and natural looking.
Best of luck,

You do not need a breast lift and will have a GREAT result with breast implant augmentation alone. Be sure to consult with an American Board of Plastic Surgery board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
