Please can I have some advice on size, placement, etc.?

Implant sizing depends on several factors. One of the most important factors is your breast width. Generally, your surgeon will measure your breast width, and then provide you with a range of implant sizes appropriate for your native breast size. There are more nuances to it than just what I've described, but this approach works for most women.
I usually have my patients bring in a large bra and a tight t-shirt to do sizing. I'll then choose 3-4 implants that I feel are appropriate, and have my patients place them in the bra under the tight t-shirt. My patients can then look in the mirror and get a good sense of what they will look like with the provided implant sizes. My patients like this approach and get a great idea of how they will look.
By using this technique, your surgeon can outline a range of appropriate implant sizes that will be aesthetically pleasing, and you make the final decision.
I hope this helps. Good luck!
Which Size Is Best?
You should see a specialist plastic surgeon/board certified in your area who will be able to recommend what is most appropriate for you.

Ideally breast implants should be placed beneath the chest muscle for the best result. You will need a formal in person consultation and examination by a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss the many options available to you. In my practice the moderate profile plus silicone gelimplant is most commonly used and does give a natural result.
