Dents are likely ripples, not a ruptured implant

Given the limited information you have provided, all I can tell you is that the dents you are feeling are most likely due to implant rippling, not necessarily rupture.  However, the best way to assess your implant integrity is through an MRI.

In terms of implant choices, you should talk to your board certified plastic surgeon.  He'll need to compare the dimensions of your existing implants to implants available to him/her to help you make a decision on what to choose.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to give you good advice with the information you have provided. Examination  or photos without bra/clothing as well as clear communication of your  goals would be a necessary place to start.

Consider resubmitting your question with your photos and goal photographs as well.

Best wishes.
