Will my breasts ripple due to my textured implant?

I am 1 week post op from my breast lift (lollipop) and augmentation dual plane 325cc Mentor high profile siltex (textured) implant. I got the surgery in Thailand. I was very happy with my surgery but today I started reading about textured vs smooth (obviously 1 week too late!) I am now very concerned and don't know why my surgeon would even recommend a textured implant? How much more do my chances of rippling increase due to having a textured implant? How much harder will my breasts be? Quite unhappy.

Stop reading about complications. If every textured implant rippled, no one would use them. Relax and give yourself time to heal.
