      In general, 400 cc will increase the average woman by 2 cup sizes.  A larger woman may take 500 cc.  650 cc may take you up 3 sizes.  Try sizers in the office to determine what you would like.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of breast augmentations each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

600-650 cc for a "D"

Those numbers sound pretty high. A good way to see what volume makes sens for you is to do a baggy test to assess how it looks in clothes.

SInce there are no fixed standards of cup size, guessing an "accurate size" is not really a possibility. Better is to try on implants, and with your surgeon's help select the best size for you based on the look you want, rather than the cup size. I have numerous patients who can wear bras of three different sizes that fit. Furthermore, a D cup on a 38 is bigger than a D cup on a 36, and so forth. 

Many surgeons who are willing to guess cup size estimate that you get a cup size increase for every 150-250 cc of implant. 

Best wishes.

Hi,

  It is impossible to tell completely from your statements what it would take to become a D but I sure like you and your doctor's choice.

  With a B cup, you have a mismatch to your weight.  This is a great procedure to match you up in confidence and curves. 

  I would think that this size will put you into a D cup.  This is a good sized implant and can add a good volume to a B cup. 

  Go for it.  You will be very happy.  I am glad you did not hear that you cannot go above a cc size such as 300 cc's.  Some doctors will not go above a certain volume and in your case, the 300 cc implants would be too small.

  Your doctor listened to you.  You are in the right place.
