I was told by surgeons I am a borderline case and I would benefit from augmentation only. Is this the case?

Borderline for lift
Breast Augment or Lift
In my opinion, the short answer is that the best result would be obtained with both procedures.
However, the long answer is that a n umber of factors need to be taken into account when making your decision. You do sit in that grey area, and having a lift involves more cuts on your chest wall. But then a lift means a more perky result.
It's going to depend on what you really want, and which set of factors will work best for you.
In my practice, when I have a patient like you, the discussion is essential. I need to listen to, and understand what it is you are hoping to achieve. Then, after my measurements and assessing which implants will work best for your size and shape, I need to take time to explain to you your options, and the pros and cons of each one. Sometimes there is only 1 surgical option, but for you, its a discussion so that we both understand each other and what can realistically be achieved.
I hope this has been of value for you.

Breast Augmentation With or Without Lift?
Breast augmentation without lift
A borderline case with ptotic (sagging) breasts.
- The photos you provided indicate that you do have some ptosis. With the examination by an experienced plastic surgeon, the decision to use implants without any lift procedure might be made.
- We inform patients with longer breasts that augmentations will create longer and larger breasts. Whether or not this is acceptable to you must be determined with a candid discussion with your surgeon. The scars of a lift may affect your decision making process.
