Breast Lift vs Breast Augmentation
Thank you for your question.
It is difficult to say without a full assessment. If your nipples have not descended to, or below your breast crease- you might have a nice result with implants alone. The size and projection would be determined by your preferred look and your specific measurements.
A lift alone can correct ptosis, but may leave the you with an underfilled breast, while implant placement without a lift may provide insufficient "lifting." Combining the breast lift and augmentation into a single procedure may also be a great option for you.
I'd recommend booking a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to discuss what you would like to change and learn about your options.
All the best.

Your left breast appears larger and lower than the right which are not uncommon findings. It appears that you may get away with just the augmentation, but remember, the asymmetries that exist now (nipple height discrepancies) will remain postoperatively as well.
Best of luck.
