I am 5"3 and about 102 pounds. I am a 32B. Although I am skinny, I've been told by 2 surgeons that I have "adequate breast tissue." I am deciding on getting 300 cc saline mod + profile. Do you think I can achieve a natural look and feel? Also, to prevent wrinkling as I am thin how many CCs should I overfill by? Keeping in mind I want the most natural result as possible. Lastly, I am prone to keloid/hypertropic scarring (silicone scar too long). Which incision is best in this situation? Thanks!

I consider two factors when selecting implants for my patients:

Thank you for the question.
Although it is not possible to give you precise advice without direct examination and a full communication of your goals, you should consider the use of so-called gel implants given your body type and goals.
Assuming you have chosen your plastic surgeon carefully, the next step would be to communicate your goals carefully 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 "full C” 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.
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.
I hope this helps.
Choosing the right breast implant
In order to choose the right breast implant for you, it is best to go for an in office consultaton. During the consultation an exam is performed to analyze your anatomy and then a review of your goals of surgery are discussed to select the appropriate implant for you.

Choosing Breast Implant Size
It is impossible to provide you with a solid answer to your questions without current photos and physical examination.
Nonetheless, if you are looking for the natural look and feel then you will have to consider the silicone implant. As for the scarring, it depends on how much you will need and what could be achieved in your case. An armpit entry (incision) is the one with the least obvious scars for the right candidate.
Your best bet is to seek a consultation with a board certified surgeon of extensive experience who could provide you with the right tools to make a well informed decision.
Best of luck to you and thank you for your inquiry.
Choice of breast implants
A Preoperative photo would be helpful to advise you on your options. It looks like you have only provided photos of your goals (which appear very reasonable).
Silicone implants can be done with minimal scarring
If you are considering 300 cc implants, this can be done through the armpit so that there is no scar on your breast, the armpit scars beautifully and you can have a silicone implant which will give you a softer breat without the rippling of a saline.
(the scar is almost as small as if you had a saline implant)
