Avoiding a lift
I do not know that you need a lift, but you are at risk of a result that falls below your desires. There is a financial reason to combine the procedure, but I would likely do an augmentation with dual plane first. If you are dissatisfied with your end result, a lift can be done later under local. A newer technique called Thermi Breast can also raise your breast without scars and is working well for us in situations like yours!
Thank you for your question.
It is difficult to say without a full assessment. Women with severely sagging breasts can see great improvements with a breast lift. For those with only slight sagging, the amount of scarring they will see from the surgery may not be worth the improvement that they see in breast position.
I'd recommend booking a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to determine what your options would be.
Lift or just implants?

Thank you for your question and sharing your photos.
The dual plane technique is a trick. It cuts the muscle to allow the implant to fall into a lower position to lie wherever your current breast lives. So, in essence you will have larger breasts in the same location they are now. Cutting the muscle this way allows breasts implants to displace further down the chest wall as time goes by. Most women who undergo this procedure often need revisionary surgery to re-position implants or have them removed entirely. However, if you are happy with your current breast volume you may find The Ultimate Breast Lift method a good alternative. The UBL method reshapes and re-positions breast tissue high on the chest wall without the extra cost, risks/complications and maintenance associated with breast implants. I hope this helps. You may also want to consider visiting the breast lift with implants revision forum on this site for real stories from women who have gone the lift with implants route.
Best wishes and kind regards,

Breast Lift vs Implants
Breast Implants / Breast Augmentation / Anatomic Gummy Bear Implants / Silicone Implants / Breast Implant Revision Surgery
From your photos, it appears you need a breast lift along with breast augmentation. A breast lift would reposition your nipples and reshape your breasts, giving them a more youthful appearance.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
