Breast implant size for petite women
there is not enough information.... what are your measurements of your breasts.. your current bra strap size.
diameter of your chest
what size do you want to be.
implants should be chosen on measurements and dimensions as well
shaped implants may in fact be perfect for you
What implants would be best for me?
Find a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of breast augmentation surgeries each year, has great reviews, and has great before and after pictures.

The perfect implant size
Based on your photographs a 350 cc implant should give you a nice natural result. I'm not sure I would go any larger than that. Of course the implant should be placed in a sub muscular pocket.
Best of luck

Breast Implant choice
Breast Implants are more than just size. One of the most important aspects of the implant is also shape (i.e. projection). Some are more natural (which means wider and less forward) and some are more youthful (which means more narrow and more prominent). The latter is referred to as high profile implants. It is this type of silicone implant that tends to look "hotter" on your petite frame. The size will be larger than 350cc because the extra volume is added to provide projection. A 425 high profile implant will be ~ the similar width, but will add very nice projection. Be sure that your surgeon shows you all three profiles (Moderate or Moderate Plus, High, Ultra High). This keeps you from having the "I wish you had told me" conversation later. Good Luck. You should be even more fabulous.
350 cc breast implants should be fine if placed beneath the chest muscle
The most important thing is to consult a very experienced board certified plastic surgeon who has an excellent reputation in your community for an in person exam and consultation. During the examination your surgeon will take measurements of your chest and use of breast implant sizing system to help you choose the appropriate size.
What implant size/style/type is best for me
I would encourage to write down all of your questions to make sure you get the most out of your consult.
I hope this helps
