Patients with a small amount of ptosis or drooping, especially at a young age can get varying opinions about lifting with an augmentation vs no lifting at all. Without examining you it is difficult to say, but if you are getting some opinions for a lift, I assume that you are a borderline case. That being said, I would ask yourself this question: What is more important to me- perkier, firmer breasts or fuller breasts. Borderline breasts that may need a lift are going to be lower on the chest wall and not perky, and will likely need a larger implant than would otherwise be necessary to fill your skin envelope and give you a nice look. Having a lift will remove skin and allow you to have a firmer breast mound that is higher, and will allow you to have smaller implant that is higher on your chest wall. If you like the upper breast fullness of some augmentations, you will likely require a lift. If just bigger breasts are your goal and a re OK with breasts that are lower and less perky and firm, you may be OK with just an augmentation. If you are athletic and active, or slender, you would probably do better with a lift to keep your breasts proportionate to your figure.
I hope this helps
