475 is VERY large
You already have quite large breasts. You would benefit greatly from a lift. Have you trialled differnet sized implants under tight t-shirts with your plastic surgeon to get an idea of what size you would eventually like to be. Also 3D software like Vectra imaging greatly aids to see what your body will look like with a lift and different sized implants. I believe that adding 450 or 475 implants to your already large, lifted breasts will make you look huge. I also believe that using this size of implant in combination with a lift would put greater risks to the vascularity (blood supply) of your nipple and wounds. I also would recommend silicone over saline implants as these give the most natural feel and appearance.
I hope this helps.
475 cc breast implants and lift may not be the best option for you
In my opinion a 475 cc breast implant is quite large considering how must breast tissue you have. My concern would be that a 475 cc breast implant could compress the blood supply to your nipple areola and create complications in wound healing problems after your breast lift.
Please revisit your plastic surgeon and discuss in detail the issues of using such a large implant and its effect on the blood supply to your nipple areola.
In your situation I agree with others that the best option might be to have your lift without an implant and if needed have an implant later on after 6 months.
I would recommend no implant at this time
