Lift vs implant
If you want your breast fuller and are happy with the shape of them, then an implant will be fine. Keep in mind an implant will only "fill our breast up" it will not "lift them up". They will look just like they do now, they are just bigger and fuller with an implant only. If you feel this will meet your goals, then an augmentation should be fine. If you are unhappy with the position of your breast and feel they are too low, then an implant will likely not satisfy you and you will want to consider the lift. A lift will "lift them up" and put them in a higher position, change the size of the areola and "lift" them off of your chest. Often times both of these procedures are combined to achieve an optimal result. By lifting them and adding volume, the breast will not only sit higher on your chest but will also have the nice fullness from the implant.

Do I need a BL?
Thank you for your question. Based on your photos which demonstrate pseudoptosis, it appears that you would do well with a breast augmentation alone with the dual plane method. Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
Breast implants alone will give you good results
According to the pictures you posted, I believe you will get a nice result from a breast augmentation alone.

Do I need a Breast Lift?
You do have glandular ptosis but a dual plane breast augmentation may be all that you need. Find a very experienced board certified plastic surgeon and have two different consults. To understand the risks please read below:
In my opinion you do not need a lift. Just a high profile implant will push out and look great. You nipple is not below the fold. Just a well placed implant should do the trick. Look for a board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
Do I need a BL?
Thank you for your question and photos. No online reviewer can make a diagnosis or give treatment recommendations without more information and a physical examination. In my practice many women have this same question. Without knowing what one's goals are it is hard to answer. First, what is the goal, how much larger does the patient want to be? Is one looking to be perkier, or larger, or both? These are the types of questions that should be answered prior to any surgery. If a person is really only interested in being perkier then a lift alone may suffice, if on the other hand, one wants to be minimally augmented then one may need both implants and a lift. Always start with a face to face consult with a
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has experience in breast surgery. During
your visit your surgeon should be evaluating your health to determine if you
are a good surgical candidate and examining your tissues to get a sense of what
type of procedure your tissues will allow. Only with a hands on exam can this
be determined. Once an exam and opinion is rendered then you can decide if
surgery is right for you. Good luck.

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
