I have a 3 finger gap cleavage, I want to have close to a no gap. Is it possible? If so what kind of implant and what size?

Following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do without having two dimensional photos and without examining you, physically feeling your tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medicalhistory and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best interest. Natural appearing results need to be individualized and what is appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon certified by the American Board of American Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The AmericanSociety for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Cleavage space options need to be discussed with every patient.
An answer to your question is a common part of the consultation for breast augmentation surgery. The gap between the breasts after this surgery is mostly influenced by your pre-operative anatomy and the chosen surgical plan rather than the size or type of implant used.
Most women want to avoid a large gap or "trough" between their augmented breasts. Discussing how to optimize this feature as well as how to best achieve improved proportions and shape must be done during the consultation. I have also found that Vectra 3D imaging has been very helpful in demonstrating to my patients what spacing between their breasts can be achieved.
Best Breast Implants for Me?
Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery ( regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:

As a general answer I would suggest the latest generation of cohesive silicone gel implants, smooth round, submuscular placement, appropriate inferomedial partial muscle fiber release, meticulous technique for minimal bleeding, bruising and no-touch Keller Funnel implant insertion for the least risk of capsular contracture. Profile should be in accordance with size choice, then selecting the width that most closely approximates your pocket base diameter to within 1 cm of the midline on each side. Any closer and you risk symmastia (uniboob).
