Avoid over implantation
Gary Horndeski, M.D.
Right size breast implants
You are tall, slim, with little breast tissue and your skin looks fairly tight. Plus you have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome which affects your connective tissue strength.
If you have a 650 cc implant,I believe that in 12 months, you will have considerable sagging of your tissues.
If you were my patient, I would suggest a compromise with a full implant, perhaps in the 400 cc range, but not one so large as 650.
See a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and discuss your options and be ready to compromise between having larger than normal breasts - and a result that will be enduring. Best wishes.
650 cc breast implants are too large for a thin woman with little breast tissue
Please undergo a breast implant sizing system evaluation and in detail consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. I agree that breast implants no larger than 350-400 cc be appropriate.

Base on these, I would suggest a 250- 300 cc implant to start creating the breast and have the tissue expand as well. I wouldn't recommend larger implants.

Thanks for submitting your pictures. From your pictures, you appear to be a very small A cup. Being a 34 very small A cup, a 650 cc implants will increase your breasts size by a little over 4 sizes. That will give you a size of 34 DD. Would I recommend it to my patients in first setting considering your measurments ? Most likely not. The bigger the implants in thin person, the more likely it is to have palpability of the implants and rippling. Also, it might take a very long time for the implants to settle down and look natural. Additionaly the pain and discomfort after surgery will increase due to excessive tension. All in all, it will be a better idea to reach your goal of 34 DD in two stages, set apart by 3 - 6 months. In regard to your EDS, you will have to be assessed and cleared by your EDS specialists due to possible problems with wound healing. Always, consult with board certified plastic surgeons and check their before and after pictures to make sure that you like the results.
Best of luck,
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and breast implants?
Everyone heals differently. While I have operated on patients with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome without complications, it is no guarantee that a patient with this syndrome could not have greater problems with healing.
Keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative procedure would not be in your best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Ehlers-Danlos and breast implants
For your height the volume mentioned, in my experience, get you to a DD; however, because of the connective tissue concern, it may be best to decrease the size and weight, since strength of the tissue will be important in holding the implant in place as well as keeping the incision intact. Take your time and investigate all options thoroughly.
