High profile implants often more likely to ripple

Ways to reduce rippling
I believe that you should give it time to drop and settle. In your case I don't believe that a larger implant will benefit you but instead it might give you skin laxity and might require a breast lift in the short future.
Rippling is an interplay between the implant, the pocket and the soft tissue covering it. Sometimes the pocket is too big and placing a larger implant in the pocket can help. In most cases, I feel that the best way to take care of this problem is to do one or both of the following: switch the implant to a highly cohesive gel such as the 410 or Sientra shaped implants and/or fat graft the breast and skin to make it thicker so that it better covers the implant.
Hope this helps.
