Is a lift necessary?
The breasts may lose their elasticity and firmness which can be caused by different factors such as pregnancy, massive weight loss, lactation and aging. To reaffirm the breasts and restore the natural look your surgeon can perform a mastopexy or breast lift. A breast lift restores a firmer, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging breasts. This not only can improve a patient’s appearance by restoring her youthful, feminine proportions, but also help bras and swimsuits fit more comfortably and attractively. By removing excess, stretched out skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and raising the nipple & areola into a more forward position, a cosmetic surgeon can create a more youthful breast contour. Stretched, large areolae can also be reduced during breast lift surgery, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast, Actually the perkiness on a person or another, depends on patients skin and breast tissue, have a great day!!
No, I don't think that you will need a breast lift in conjunction with your augmentation.
I recommend an in-office examination and a detailed discussion with a board certified Plastic Surgeon.

Thank you for your question. Based on your photos, it does not appear that you need a lift in addition to your implants. If you wanted a reduction of your areola size, you would need a circumareolar mastopexy (donut lift). This would be optional. Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
