The issue with palpable or visible implant rippling is related to the thickness of the tissue (breast gland, muscle, fat) over the implant itself. A woman who is thin with less breast tissue to begin with will have a greater chance of feeling the rippling of the implant than a woman who has larger breasts to begin with and therefore more tissue to cover the implant. Placing the implant under the breast gland and the pectoralis major muscle (which would cover the upper half to 2/3 of the implant) decreases the chance of visible implant ripples when in swimsuits or lingerie, but the side and lower part of the breast is still the most likely place to feel or see ripples related to the implant if the woman is thin and small-breasted to begin with. Saline implants are the most likely to "ripple", but all implants, even the very firm and stiff anatomic shaped silicone implants (Mentor CPG or Allergan 410) have some likelihood of rippling. Other than gaining weight to increase the amount of fat present in the tissue over the implant there is very little that can be done to change the amount of soft tissue coverage over your implant (assuming your implants are sub muscular). Please speak to your Plastic Surgeon about your concerns. Hopefully over time the rippling will stabilize or improve on it's own.
