350 or 375
Best advice is for you to have another discussion with your surgeon before the morning of surgery.
350cc or 375cc for Breast Augmentation?
Keep in mind that the difference of 25 cc of breast implant volume may not even be noticeable clinically. Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery (regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you're looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.
2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals.
In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or “C or D cup” etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful.
Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on him who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate. The use of computer imaging may be helpful during this communication process.
3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your plastic surgeon to use his/her years of experience/judgment to choose the breast implant size/profile that will best meet your goals. Again, in my practice, this decision is usually made during surgery.
I hope this (and the attached link) help.

350 cc breast implants for petite woman C cup
That said in a petite 5 foot 1 inch female I personally rarely go larger than 350 cc which should give you a nice full breasts. Please consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in breast surgery and who has an excellent reputation in your community.
If you have an experienced surgeon, certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, let him/her make the choice for you when he/she sees how much space you have in the pocket they develop for you. Overstretching to make a particular sized implant fit is a mistake. It will affect the healing and recovery, not to mention potentially cause future tissue thinning and hernias issues.
