Do I truly need a lift with my implants? (photos)

I am all set for my breast aug in September and we couldn't be more ecstatic! However, doc is suggesting a lift on my right breast. After much research and examination I am doubting that I need it. I am planning on getting a significant size increase (currently a 36B), 350 (ish) cc, wouldn't this solve a minor droop alone? I have studied Bellini vs lollipop vs anchor and at the most I think a Bellini IF ANY. HELP!! I would love to avoid the extra procedure, scars, and cost. Thank you!!

Do I truly need a lift with my implants?

Hello 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 tissue!
