An inframammary incision is an excellent choice for breast augmentation surgery as it can be easily hidden. It should not migrate upwards upon healing if it is placed correctly. However, there is a chance that over time, your implant can fall below the inframammary fold which can cause the scar to migrate upwards. We call this "bottoming out" of the implant and there is no guarantee that this will not or cannot happen. I would suggest meeting with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area for a formal evaluation and discussion.
