The rippling you describe is probably the result of saline implants.  Gel implants will not do this very often.  It wounds like you need a revision of the lift with new implants.  Every office has different policies regarding revision surgery, and I cannot speak for the surgical group you are seeing.  My bet is that there will be some charge after three years post surgery, but it may be possible to work out some reduction of fees for the revision.  I would discuss this in a frank but non-threatening way.
