An in person exam and consultation would be necessary to provide you the best recommendations regarding placement and size that will be consistent with your objectives, lifestage, and lifestyle. Consult in person with 3 - 4 experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons to explore your options.

Difficult to offer advice without an exam.  Rippling in a heavier women with larger breasts may be the result of implants in a subglandular pocket.  It may be better to be placed under the muscle.
