Breast lift or just augmentation? (photos)

Choice of Breast Lift and/or Implant Augmentation
Without examining you ,It appears from your pictures that you would need a breast lift . you may be a candidate for a donut breast lift. The incision is just around the areola. It's not uncommon that there is no postoperative pain after surgery.
For more information please watch the enclosed video. I hope you find this information helpful.
Breast augmentation and lift candidate, some advices:
After having analyzed all the information and photos provided to us, I realize that you have very sagging and small breasts. In this regard, you need volume (implants) and projection (the lift): Breast Augmentation w/Breast Lift.
I recommend you to use microtexturized highly cohesive silicon implant ("gummy bear" implants), with high projection, and 400ml will be excelent on you, to fill the breasts properly.
Finally, to perform the breast lift I recommend a Periareolar Round Block Breast Lift ("Benelli mastopexy"), which has an unnoticed scar around the areola, and if we see (in the surgery) that we can't obtain adecuate projection just with the Benelli Lift, we have to perform a "Lollipop breast lift".

Lift with implants
Thank you for your question and photos. Based on these it appears that you will require a lift in order to reposition the nipples and reduce excess skin. I recommend that you meet with a board certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in this area. They will examine you, discuss your aesthetic goals and offer surgical options to consider.
All the best
Lift/augmentation vs augmentation alone
If you would like more fullness in the superior pole or upper chest, then you will need implants in addition to a breast lift. There are more complications associated with doing a lift and implants together than doing implants alone. The incisions are usually made horizontal and vertical and around the nipple vs a small scar beneath the breast. Many surgeons will perform the mastopexy or lift procedure first and bring you back 2 months later to place implants. The staged procedure done in this manner will also allow you to decide whether you would like to have implants; and also will reduce the risk of wound healing problems.
These are questions that you should discuss with your doctor.
Breast lift or just augmentation?
Just augmentation vs a lift?
Best choice is combination surgery
Your photographs indicate breast ptosis (drooping) but also a condition known as Psuedoptosis.
Psuedoptosis is loss of breast volume resulting in loss of projection and shape, but with the nipple/areola location remaining above the inframammary creases.
Restoring volume is critical to achieving a natural result, but adding volume alone (breast augmenation only) will be insufficient in correcting the shape of the breasts.
You would be best served by a combination approach with a procedure commonly referred to as Augmentation/Mastopexy where both breast lifting and augmentation are performed together to optimize the appearances of the breasts.
Consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon will be helpful to review your options and establish surgical goals.
Good luck with your procedures!
