What surgery will I be looking at to achieve the look I want of perky, large breasts w/ no lateral movement of breasts?
Generally, the lateral breast implant displacement can be corrected using an internal suture technique, decreasing the size of the pockets and moving the implants toward the midline. In my practice, I use a 2 layered suture technique (capsulorraphy) to close off the space laterally (towards the axilla). The use of acellular dermal matrix is an option ( although not usually necessary) especially if significant implant rippling/palpability is present.
Based on your photographs, I agree that some type of breast lifting will also be necessary. Exactly what type of breast lifting would be required would be best determined during in-person evaluation. I hope this (and the attached link) helps.

Larger implants make lateral movement worse without additional support
- Natural breasts move to the side when lying on your back
- Heavier breasts (larger implants) will tend to move more
- Your pictures show some sagging which would require a lift, even with larger implants
- An internal bra with Strattice, SERI, or Galaflex will be helpful to support the breasts and implants and minimize lateral movement.
