If i considered teardrop implant for my BA, placed under the muscle, and the surface is textured? Is there still a possibility for rippling and flipping under the pocket?
How to Avoid Teardrop Implant Complication?

Yes, the tear drop implant can become displaced and can flip or turn. Turning a round implant is not a problem. I am not a big fan of the tear drop shaped implant for that reason.

Textured Teardrop Breast Implants
Shaped breast implants are textured to help reduce the risk of them shifting. Unlike round breast implants, if teardrop shaped implants spin, the shape of the breast changes. If you are very flat, or have had breast reconstruction after a mastectomy, the shaped implants can provide superior results. If you already have teardrop shaped breasts, and are looking to enlarge them, a round implant, behind the muscle, can often provide an excellent teardrop shaped result, without the worry of spinning. Remember the final result of you breast is not determined soley by the shape of the implant. The size, shape and profile of your breast implant should be selected with the guidance of a Board Certified plastic surgeon in conjunction with an in person consultation.
