Over The Muscle High Profile Silicone Vs Lollipop Breast Lift With Round Saline Implants For Sagging Breast??
Implant position and lifting
Your best option is to have your implants placed partially under the muscle and a breast lift. Your skin has stretched and will not support an implant under the breast. You have lost fullness of the upper pole of the breast which will also make rippling of the implant in a subglandular placement more obvious.
Seek out a board certified plastic surgeon to review these issues with you.
Good luck and I hope this was helpful.
Don't Make a Serious Mistake
I would want you to keep going on consults. The doctor you saw has virtually disqualified himself with his recommendation for breast augmentation without a lift. That would be a disaster, even with high profile implants over the muscle.
You would be served well with implants placed under the pectoralis muscle and a full lift. If you cannot afford silicone gel implants with this surgical plan, wait or finance.
Best of luck!

How NOT to Screw-Up your Breasts with a Poorly Planned Breast Augmentation
Let's critically look at your breasts and analyze what makes them somewhat unattractive. Then, by correcting these factors we should be able to create sexy, perky breasts. Your breasts are
- Deflated and Asymmetric ( as is seen in MANY women after breast feeding) -
- the areolas are very large
- the nipples are pointing down
- the amount of breast fill is small compared to the amount of breast skin.
To fix this we need to REDUCE the amount of breast skin and reduce the size of the areolas. THen we need to add fill/volume to the breasts and reposition the smaller nipple complex in the center of the new, higher breast mound for forward pointing nipples.
Putting any implants into these breasts and walking away is a dumb decision. You will end up with a Rock in a Sock appearance which overtime will only look worse. Furthermore, saline implants are heavier than silicone implants and they crease more. So, do you REALLY want rippled, low hanging great grandma breasts????
The best solution is to do a Breast Lift (which removes skin excess and corrects the skin envelope and repositions the nipple where it needs to be. This should be done with a silicone implant under the muscle (to reduce rippling and the odds of scarring around the implants (contracture) AND your surgeon may additionally add fat in the socially visible areas of the breast to create more cleavage AND reduce rippling.

Do the right thing
To Lift or Not To Lift
I would also recommend placing the implants behind the muscle in a dual plane fashion to help prevent future problems, which is more an issue when implants are placed in front of the muscle.
Hope that helps. Good luck.
