Implant under the muscle make it look smaller?
Volume doesn't change with implant position
Implants Under Muscle Changes the Size?
But I think you may also be wondering about how 375 ccs will look under the muscle compared with how a 375 cc sizer looks on top of your breast right now. And if that is your question, then, yes, I think that if you "love the look" of a given sizer on top of your breast you may perhaps best get to that goal by putting a slightly larger implant under the muscle.
Best of luck!

Placing the breast implant beneath the chest muscle will not reduce the size
There are many distinct advantages and benefits to placing your breast implant under the muscle. Immediately after surgery the breast implants are compressed into look smaller however with time the breast implant will settle into the pocket and look normal and in most cases more natural than breast implants placed under the gland.
If you're really concerned in your heart believe this will happen to you then simply ask your surgeon to place an additional 25 cc breast implant and your pocket but in my experience there is no difference.
Volume is the same
Placing the implant below the muscle (rather than above) and using a silicone gel implant (rather than saline) will both give a more natural appearance which may allow you to go with a larger implant and still achieve a natural result.
If you were told that implants placed below the muscle or silicone gel implants will look 25cc less, that's not exactly true. They may appear 25cc less because they look more natural, but they will not be 25cc smaller.
