Is a lift necessary?
dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well..
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.

Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you are a great candidate for breast augmentation. I do not believe that you need a lift. The most important aspect is to find
a surgeon you are comfortable with. With good surgical technique, you could have
an outstanding result. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified
board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.

Is a lift necessary?
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!
If you are not sure about getting a lift then perhaps just go with the augmentation first and see how you look.
Do you need a lift
From your photographs, it does not seem at all what you need a lift. We usually gauge this on your nipple position in relationship to the breast fold. Your nipples are above fold and you would probably get a very aesthetic result without additional scars.
Don't really need a lift
I doubt that a lift is necessary and would add significant scarring. The addition of an implant will likely give you the look you want. You will want to discuss this with your surgeon but in my practice I would probably recommend subfascial placement of the implant.
I see no reason you would need a lift of any kind
You should do just wonderful with an implant alone- the important decision is which implant. Your chest will not narrow with weight loss. The base width that is measured to choose your implants is more a function of your musculoskeletal system and not any residual fullness from fat you may have laterally. I do think you would get the best result from a shaped device that will fill out your "deflation" as you called and give nice volume and nipple lift by distributing more of the implant's volume to your lower pole of your breast where you need it. You can change projections to fit what cup size you are looking to have. Make sure you consult with a plastic surgeon that not only feels comfortable with the shaped devices, but is proficient and gets gorgeous results with them. Hope this helps.
Breast augmentation alone might accomplish your goal
From the photos you posted, it does not appear that you need a lift. An breast augmentation alone should give you a good result. When you go for your consultation, you should look at pictures of women similar to your build to see what various implant styles can accomplish. I advise my patients that a weight change of approximately 10% or more can change their final surgical results. For more information on this and similar topics, I recommend a plastic surgery Q&A book like "The Scoop On Breasts: A Plastic Surgeon Busts the Myths." I hope this information helps. Good luck to you.
