I have tissue expanders in now. I'd like to be as close to my natural size as possible.
I'm 5'7" and I Weigh 180 Lbs. I Had a D Cup Before my Double Mastectomy. How Many Cc's Will I Need to Be That Size?

there are no pictures, so it is hard to say but 800 cc is aboutthe biggest in a gel omplant so you may not be as large as you would like

Implant size after mastectomy
It is difficult to advise on the implant size without direct examination or more information. How much is expander filled to? Do you like the size of your current tissue expander? Based on your information, you would need at least 700cc implant. Also, remember that depending on the bra brand and styles, your bra size will differ slightly.
Options with breast reconstruction
You may not be able to get up to a D cup size with reconstruction. The largest implant made is in the 800 cc range and this may be a bit smaller than a D base upon your chest and ideal breast base diameter. An examination would be needed to give you a better idea of your options.
