Achieving a natural look in breast augmentation
In general, the smallest increase in apparent breast size with a round implant is about one cup size. This is done with an implant that fits properly behind your breast (has a diameter about 1 cm less than your breast upright with arms down) and has the lowest forward profile in round, smooth surface implants. This would be low profile in saline-filled implants and moderate profile in gels.
The middle profile implant can also look quite natural while making your breast look about 1 1/2 cup sizes larger. This would be a medium profile in saline-filled and moderate plus in gel-filled implants. Profiles higher than medium can start to look less natural, particularly when starting with little breast tissue.
To best help you, a physical examination or picture evaluation is required in order to determine which procedures and techniques would be best for your case.

Thank you for your question! The size of implant is important - and with your frame- the lower range 150 to 190 size would give you a nice size and look "natural". A moderate profile implant or a moderate plus profile implant could be used and have a good result when lying down.

In that size range your options include smooth round or textured implants. The key measurement for the implant is that its width should be less than your measured breast width.
Best of luck!

1. Dimensional planning
2. Gel Implant Sizing system
Dimensional planning – The measurements of your chest wall are taken. Also, the breast dimensions including the height, width, and current dimensions of each breast form the basis of dimensional planning. Based on these measurements, the implant size is recommended. This will give you a unique breast implant that is suited for your body frame. However, there are some limitations of what size we can recommend. For instance, some implants may just be too big for a narrow chest wall. Your surgeon can review this with you during the consultation.
Gel Implant Sizing system – During the preliminary breast implant consultation, you will be provided with an option to “try on” a variety of implant shapes and sizes. You can also visualize the possible outcomes of your surgery which helps you to get that perfect size to give you the shape that you longed for. This way your preferences are known and you can then pick a range of implants that will “fit” just right to give a soft natural fuller look. Hope this helps.
