I am going in for my breast implants in a week, and I'm having second thoughts about the size. I am 25 years old, I have one child, and I don't have any sagging or stretch marks on my breasts. I am currently an A cup and I would like to be a full natural D cup. My surgeon and I decided on 600cc cohesive gel implants. I'm wondering if they will end up looking too big. Is 600cc too big? If not, how big will my breast end up being?

It is 600 cc too big?
It's hard for patients to go with numbers alone. I strongly recommend that you look at implant sizers on your frame. Think about how the implants balances with your hips, your shoulders, and your goals.
I have included a link of the implant sizing below. I hope this is of help to you.
600 cc? and you want to look natural?
I've never once seen 600cc implants look natural...at least in my opinion of what natural is.
I've also never seen an A cup patient wth 600 cc implants whose tissue wasn't damaged from the weight and pressure over time.
If you want to be natural, forget about the cup size. Go to a surgeo who can measure you and determine on objective grounds the ideal sized implant to fill your breast envelope. My bet is that it isn't more than 350cc...
600 cc breast implants too large?

600cc is a larger than average implant
A 600 cc implant is larger than average. Some of the data in the breast implant brochure mandated by the FDA for reading prior to breast augmentation suggests that the risk of complications is higher in individuals with implants exceeding 350cc.
That having been said, 600cc may achieve your goals but it is not likely to be natural. Try sizers on once again prior to surgery and walk around with them for an hour or two. Make sure you like the look and are comfortable with the weight. Expect that other procedures will be required at a later date.
It depends on your proportions
I certainly agree with the comments above. 600cc implants are generally considered large, but cup size is proportional to bra size. If you're a 40 bra band size, 600 cc may be right for you. If you're a 32, 600cc will be larger than a D.
In your surgeon's office, try on a set of sizers and see what 600cc looks like on your body. That's a good way to tell if you're overdoing it.
Finally, we've got a 3D scanner so you can see a close representation of what various sizes of implants would look like. Not many offices have the technology, but it really helps people visualize what results may be achieved.

600cc breast implants to achieve D cup too large?
Good communication between you and your surgeon of your expectations is warranted - choosing your surgeon wisely is the first step. Discussion of your wishes and having an honest and open dialog of your procedure is mandatory (e.g, implant type, incision, placement, lift, etc). I have found that photographs brought by the patient is helpful to get a visualization of the appearance you wish for in terms of size, shape, fullness, etc. In addition, your surgeon's pre and postoperative photographs should demonstrate a realistic goal for you. Once this has been accomplished, allow your surgeon to utilize his/her best medical judgment during the procedure to finesse the best possible result for you after preoperative biodimensional planning and fitting the right implant for your breast width.
Hope me that this helps! Best wishes for a wonderful result!
