In brief: No easy answer
Not sure what you mean by "firm up".
Breast reduction is usually a very satisfying surgery for women that have long been bothered by disproportionately large, heavy and hanging breasts. It can be difficult to maintain fullness in the upper breast. Occasionally breast implants are indicated either at the same time or later. Restoring some of the lost volume may help.

Breast reduction in and of itself won't "firm" up the breasts. Once the swelling goes away and the tissues relax they will be soft like they were, just higher, smaller and perkier. An implant will make them firmer but defeat the purpose of going smaller.

In brief: Breast Implants?
Generally speaking, breast reduction surgery tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations performed in the field of plastic surgery.
Patient's' breasts end up lifted and smaller, but not “firmed up". Occasionally, patients will elect to undergo breast augmentation to increase firmness and/or volume of the upper chest wall/breast area.
