Mastopexy after your Augmentation
Now, to address some other things. It seemed surprising that your surgeon would think that only implants were needed at the start. If he/she were placing large implants (over 400cc) than perhaps that would have been all you needed, but with only 250cc implants, your problems seems extremely predictable. Secondly, I am not convinced from your photos that a peri-areolar lift alone will lift you sufficiently. You have a very large amount of skin laxity and I think you would do best with a lollipop lift. Obviously, this is only my impression from the limited photos, so discuss this with your surgeon.

Can you perform a lift after having implants?
I'm quite certain they talked to you at the time of your first consultation that you would probably need some sort of a lift given your initial pre-op photos. Sometimes my patients will decide to wait to have a lift until after they are sure what it will look like without one. If you were not made aware that you would probably have a better outcome with a lift at the same time, then I am sorry your surgeon did not spend more time educating you and discussing your options.
You can perform a lift after having implants. I think that $1500 is a very reasonable cost to perform the lift and is most likely just the cost difference if you had performed the lift at the same time.
