Sub-muscular breast augmentation with textured silicone gel implants best for you
Be sure to consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in breast implant surgery,and who has an excellent reputation in your community.
A good thing is that you have small breasts without sagging or other abnormality. This means that you should be able to have a nice breast augmentation result using the best most tried techniques.
Currently most women choose silicone gel breast implants and most commonly a moderate plus gel implant.
Recent research indicates that a textured implant provides additional protection against capsular contraction or firmness of the breast which is a serious potential complication.
Most plastic surgeons avoid saline implants because of the possibility of visible rippling.

A Shaped, Form Stable Breast Implant Could be Best for You
There is no way to determine just with photos exactly what size would be best for you. However, based on your photos it is very likely that you would be an ideal candidate for a shaped, form stable implant. The ideal candidates for these implants:
1. A cup (and up to small B cup) breasts preop
2. Most of the augmented breast volume will be the implant
3. Very thin layer of subcutaneous fat so implant contours have the potential to be easily visible postop
4. Inframammary fold MUST be lowered to center the implants on the nipple-areola complexes
