Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift Options
When patients want larger breasts or additional upper breast fullness, it's not unreasonable to combine this procedure with a breast augmentation. Under these circumstances, a variety of breast implants are available for this procedure.
Silicone implants tend to feel more natural and are less likely to ripple. Saline implants are less expensive and their volume can be adjusted during the procedure. The size of implant utilized is dependent upon the patient's aesthetic goals. Most patients are striving for harmony, balance and proportion with the surrounding anatomic structures. They want a natural look with slight upper breast fullness.
If you're considering this type of procedure, it's important to consult a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in this area. This surgeon should be able to formulate a treatment plan that addresses your anatomic findings and achieves your aesthetic goals.

Cure for sagging breasts
Implants will certainly make the loss of volume you have (especially in the superior pole of your breasts) better. You may also need a lift to achieve your ideal breast shape. The downside of a lift of course is additional scars.
Try to find a few pictures of ideal breasts and bring them with you to your consultation. It can really help you and your plastic surgeon find a shared goal.
I hope this helps!
