Got 330 wanted 500cc
IT LOOKS like right now is still early for you to evalute the final size , is very apparent the implant is still all the way up , and skin has not relax to allow the size of implant show also has not descend to inferior breast fold , I do not Know is your Surgeon recommended an elastic band , because it seems your implants are behind muscle and is a neccesity for best and adequate results to wear this band at least for the first 3 weeks after surgery /
I do not have previous pictures to evaluate your breast tissue an predicte an approximation of what is going to be the final results in terms of size , but in general 330 is a good size and maybe you end up with a B full cup or C. i DO NOT know when was your surgery but you wil need to wait at least for 3 weeks to finally see wich will be the results it looks like is very early now
It might be possible to upgrade to a larger implants, but an exam in person would be necessary to properly evaluate you.
Bra cup sizes are not standardized
More information and an in person consultation is best, and required for the most accurate answer, however based on my expereince 500-550cc with minimal native breast tissue will be a D to DD (larger at VS as they upsize/run small) in the 34ish bra range. That being said I agree you look tightly stretched now and would have to wait a minimum of 3-6 months for your skin and tissue to relax and look good with your current 330cc saline before considering going larger. And then you need to see if your chest width can accpet the larger/wider implant. All the best.

Augmentation means addition
I would agree with the other surgeons that we do not have enough information to answer your question. If you remember that augmentation means addition, then you are adding to whatever cup size you started with. I also use 150-200cc as a cup equivalent. So if you add a 300cc implant to a current B cup you will go up 1 1/2 to 2 cups.
In regards to what is too big, that is an excellent conversation to have with your doctor. It really depends on your goals. Any implant adds weight to the breast and stretches the tissues. The bigger the implant the more the stretch and the thinner your tissues may become. As a female plastic surgeon, I have a 290cc implant which makes me a c and is plenty big enough for me, but I try and separately evaluate my patients and help achieve their goals. For that reason, I sometimes put in much larger implants because that is truly the look my patient desires. Good luck!
What cup size will I be?
There is no formula for determining cup size based on added volume, especially since bra manufacturers do not even have standard cup sizes. Also, you did not include enough information to even hazard a guess as to what the additional volume might make you. I will give you this, however. My dad used to tell me that a cup size was about 150-200 cc's. That was a pretty good general rule of thumb. Perhaps it will help you.
Got 330ccs Want 500- 550cc 5'7. 140 What Cup Will I Be?
Not enough info to answer this. I don't know what size you are now, and I can't tell whether your breasts are wide enough to tolerate the larger size. The current implants already look like they are stretching your skin abnormally, but this may resolve as the implants drop.
Your surgeon will be a better resource for this kind of information. All the best.
