Will 425cc silicone implants make me bigger than my 350cc 390cc saline implants? (Photo)

You need to upsize more when going from saline to silicone gel
Going up just a little (as you talk about) will probably not give you the result that you are looking for.
I am very surprised at how much more volume my patients require when converting to gel implants especially when they are going for a little higher cup size.
I hope that helps!
Difference in Implant Sizes for replacement
You can put a baggy with water in your bra using the difference of size of the two implants to see the approximate difference though this is only an estimate. So the 475 would make more of a visible difference. There are some programs you can use - Crysalix that can give you an approximation using your photos to see the difference as well.
Probably most important is the experience of your board certified plastic surgeon that you trust.

Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering revisionary 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 are looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work. 2. Again, have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining which operation and/or 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" or " too big for my size" etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful.
Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate. 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. The use of temporary intraoperative sizers, viewing the patient's breasts in the upright and supine position, are very helpful during the breast implant selection process.
I hope this, and the attached link (dedicated to revisionary breast surgery concerns), helps.
