A skin deformity characterised by ridging on the upper surface of the breast due to thin skin or underfilling or leakage of a breast implant. While rippling can occur with all types of implants, it is more common with saline implants due to saline’s fluid mechanics compared to those of silicone gel; it is more common over the lower half of the implant than the upper because there is less subcutaneous tissue over the lower half; it is more common in implants placed above the muscle than submuscular implants; textured implants are more likely to ripple than smooth
