Do you need implants
Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and explain what your goals are. Don't be intimidated. Your surgeon wants to know what YOU want so that they can do their best to provide it for you.Best wishes,

Breast Lift and Implants with Mommy Makeover
In regards to implants alone, this is usually said to be mistake by patients reflecting back at the decision. Most breasts will look larger and more droopy with solely implants. They will sag more and sooner, due to the sudden and excess weight. At times it's possible for a “Snoopy” breast or double bubble to develop as a result.
Additionally, an implant with lift may be useful to re-position the nipples which may have been affected by ptosis or drooping.
Your Plastic Surgeon will measure you to determine the best shape and size of the implants to be used. Shaped implants are all textured and should not rotate when used properly. In my practice, about 20% of the patients benefit from shaped implants.
Breast lift with or without implant
You can certainly have an implant placed at the time of your lift. Depending on how your breasts change with further weight loss, the size of the breasts and therefore the implant size will vary. Discuss your goals with your surgeon to determine which size and style would be best for you. Best of luck!
Probably don't need the implants
From the photos it appears that you have enough breast volume to maintain a C cup after a lift. That may change after you lose an additional 15 lbs., so you may have to wait and see. At any rate, if that becomes the case, you can always have an implant placed along with a lift. Good luck!
Breast augmentation and lift, 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 450ml 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".
