Rippling after breast augmentation.
Rippling with 450cc over the muscle
The issue here will be the tension on the tissue due to the weight of the implant in combination with the thin tissue cover in the upper part of the breast.
In essence the the solution will be to increase the tissue coverage in the rippling area and this may involve fat grafting, or relocating the implant to under the muscle. this may need to be couple with decreasing the size of the implant to allow the tissue a better chance of supporting the weight.
I know this is not exactly what you wanted to hear, and may be unacceptable, which would mean that the rippling is one of the downsides of a large implant in a plane in front of the muscle, that patients need to accept as part of the result they achieved.
I would suggest seek a formal consultation and opinion and then assess the options.
All the best
