Thanks for your question and photos. It is hard to tell just based on your photos. An in person exam is needed to know how thin you tissue is. As far as revision surgery. It is not "hard" but time consuming as it appears that your implants are sitting low and there is a noticeable step-off from your chest and the implants. It is normal to feel the implant on the bottom as the implant usually is not covered by muscle even if your implants were placed under the muscle. An areola reduction would lift your breast and at that time you could "tighten" the breast pocket to help elevate it and help decrease the chances of rippling. Discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon. Good Luck!
All the best,
