Would That Work for You
It is not uncommon to change positions if you are deemed a candidate to do so per the condition of your current implants and pocket. There are some studies that report a lesser incidence of firm capsules with placement behind the pectoralis muscle. If you developed firm capsules and your implants were submammary (behind the breast tissue) then conversion to a #submuscular position should be considered. This #placement is particularly better for the very thin patient who has little breast or fat in the upper part of their chest. In most circumstances, those patients with #ptosis (#sagging) require placement above the muscle in a #submammary position or under the muscle combined with a mastopexy (breast lift) for #contour purposes.
Increasing your current implant #size may cause additional #sagging and may not be a sound idea. Also, some patients will experience better results to restore superior fullness if a breast lift is included with their #augmentation or #revision; better known as #AugmentationMastopexy. Altogether, the surgery will create an elevated, more youthful breast contour. Also, the nipple and areolae of the desired size and correct height may also be addressed. I prefer to use a #shortscar technique, #LollipopScar or #DonutLift” rather than the majority of surgeons in the United States that use an anchor pattern lift which involve more significant scarring.
Your Plastic Surgeon needs to measure you and determine the best shape and size of any implants that are used. Any cosmetic #revision has risks of unhappy outcome or other complications. Also, the right implant for the revision is contingent on shape of body and your desired outcome.

Changing to silicone implants beneath the muscle will probably disguise them better and improve the rippling. The old capsule can be removed at that time. Bigger implants will give you more of a lift. Whether or not you want even larger breasts, or if you want a lift, is a personal choice.
