It sounds like you are an excellent candidate for a breast augmentation.  There are definite advantages and disadvantages to both saline and gel breast implants.  Saline implants can ripple which can often be felt and sometimes seen.  Over time, these implants can wear down and result in a small hole years after the procedure causing their deflation and requiring another procedure.  Gel implants feel more natural and if they do leak, this is often silent, detected only definitively with an MRI.  They are also more expensive than saline.  Seek the consultation of a local plastic surgeon who can discuss details of the procedure, show you the implants, and quote fees for the surgery.
