Implant sizing depends on several factors. One of the most important factors is your breast width. Generally, your surgeon will measure your breast width, and then provide you with a range of implant sizes appropriate for your native breast size. There are more nuances to it than just what I've described, but this approach works for most women.
I usually have my patients bring in a large bra and a tight t-shirt to do sizing. I'll then choose 3-4 implants that I feel are appropriate, and have my patients place them in the bra under the tight t-shirt. My patients can then look in the mirror and get a good sense of what they will look like with the provided implant sizes. My patients like this approach and get a great idea of how they will look.
By using this technique, your surgeon can outline a range of appropriate implant sizes that will be aesthetically pleasing, and you make the final decision.
I hope this helps. Good luck!
Breast implant size
Thanks for submitting your pictures. In my practice breasts size is determined by patients desire and chest and breasts circumference measurements. Since you did not specify your measurements , it is difficult to give you an answer. Let's assume that you are 34 small A cup. To become a 34 full C you will need , roughly, a volume of 450cc. For a D cup you will need 525cc. I hope this helps. Always, consult with board certified plastic surgeons and check their before and after pictures to make sure that you like the results. Also, make sure that their pictures are numerous and theu have good reviews.
Best of luck,

If you are nervous about 420 cc breast implants you should see your doctor again
Of more concern to me is the fact that you do have some glandular ptosis and you need to discuss with your plastic surgeon whether or not a breast lift may be necessary. Placing a 420 cc breast implant beneath your muscle with your current breast implants shape could cause a snoopy deformity.
I would strongly urge you to revisit your plastic surgeon for a further consultation and breast implant sizing system evaluation and a discussion of whether you need a lift before proceeding with surgery.
