Natural Look after breast augmentation...........what size?
Based on your pictures I feel that you have the potential to have very natural looking breasts following your breast augmentation. I would suggest a 350cc silicone gel high profile. I caution you about the use of saline in your case. I feel that your chances of having rippling, where you will feel and see the ripples, are very high. I strongly urge you to look for a plastic surgeon certified by the Americajn Board of Plastic Surgery who specializes in cosmetic breast surgery. Good luck.

Best implant size depends on many things
It is impossible to say the exact size implant that will give you a C cup, since the choice depends on the measurements of your breasts and since cup size varies from bra maker to bra maker. On top of that, implants come in different shapes/profiles, from moderate (wide and flat like a pancake) to high projection (narrow and tall like a ball). So narrowing down the size is only part of the decision.
From the information you provided and your picture, I think that somewhere around 250 or 300 mL would give you the look you are after. But it would be best for you to discuss this at an in person consultation. I think it's helpful for patients to bring pictures of what they like since words like "natural" and "proportionate" can mean different things to different people.

Thank you for the question and pictures. Base on your photographs, you are starting at a great place and should have a very nice outcome with breast augmentation surgery. However, despite good intentions, online consultants will not be able to provide you with meaningful specific advice. Ultimately, in person consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons will be necessary. Careful measurements, dimensional planning, and careful communication will be key.
Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery ( regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you're looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.
2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals 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 "C or D cup" 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. The use of computer imaging may be very helpful during this communication phase.
3. 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.

Breast implant size
Natural appearing implants
commonly as gummy bear implants). The shaped device limits the upper breast pole "fullness" which is an obvious sign of an augmentation. The tight pocket required in placing these implants gives a "single breast" feel where the implant and breast feel like one unit. A slightly larger incision is necessary, but most women find the trade offs acceptable.
Impossible to recommend an implant size without an exam...
As much as I would like to help you believe that I'm so good at what I do that I can look at photos of you and be able to tell you what implant will achieve your goal, there's just no way anyone could...
The implant that is best for you will depend on details that could not be understood without spending some time together talking in more detail about your goals, performing a careful examination, and reviewing your options. The characteristics of your tissues play a large part in the appropriate selection...
Your best bet is to choose your surgeon very carefully and for the right reasons, communicate openly and honestly, listen carefully, and then trust them to do what they do so well.
