Will a 15-20# weight loss affect a breast lift? How long should I be at a stable weight before surgery? (143# now)

I began working out and losing weight a few months ago. My breasts have always been saggy and deflated looking and my weight has never affected them. I weigh 143# now and hope to get down to 125-130#. Should I wait to have a lift after I achieve my goal seeing as that little of weight really makes a difference in my frame size or will it not make any difference as far as my breast go? I don't want to have it done then my breast go back to the way they were prior to surgery if that's the case.
