Breast Implant Size
Assuming you have no children and have not had a major weight loss, you will probably be a full C with 350 cc sub-pectoral implants, while a 425 cc sub-pectoral implant may put you in the D cup range. Going from a B to a D is not exactly a natural look. Another way to determine your appropriate size is to put implants in your bra. Although this technique is not perfect, it is one more way to determine the best size implant for you.
Hope this helps!

Which Profile Implant To Use
Some patients seem to believe that you choose an implant profile in order to choose your look. Many seem to think that a high profile implant will project forward much more than other profiles. That is not the case. A high profile implant of any one size is generally no more than a quarter of a third of an inch more "projecting" than a moderate plus profile.
A rough guess is that based on your photos, for you to use a 425 cc implant will mean a moderate plus or high profile implant. But discuss with your surgeon. Best of luck!

425 cc breast implant may be too large for you
You may also do the Rice test at home which is described in the following link:
Selecting your implant size for Breast Augmentation
Will 425cc implants be too big for me?
In terms of whether 425cc is too big for you depends on what profile implants you have and what look you are trying to achieve. Part of this depends on the width of your breast. Make sure your plastic surgeon shows you photos of similar size people with the same implant. The size of the implant depends on what size you want to be after the operation, and if you chose an implant larger than your current breast there is a greater likelihood you will be able to see and feel the implants.It comes down to what shape/look you want from the operation.
Try to find someone with a Vectra 3D imaging machine in your area to simulate your breast augmenation result (see the link below) - in a recent article (Oct 2013) of Plastic& Reconstructive Surgery Journal (Plast. Reconstr. Surg.132: 810, 2013.), the main Plastic Surgery Journal worldwide, the 3D imaging VECTRA machine was found to be beneficial for patients considering breast augmentation surgery.
The article concluded that patients prefer a center that offers three-dimensional imaging technology; they feel that the simulation is very accurate and helps them greatly in choosing the implant; and that if they could go back in time, they would choose the same implant again.
All the best with your decision. Regards Dr Charles Cope
