Breast Augmentation and Size

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

First and foremost, you need to be examined to determine if you're a straightforward augmentation or a possible mastopexy with augmentation. They are very different procedures. If you are just an augmentation then you need to decide the type of implant you want (saline or silicone), the profile, size etc...There are many variables as you can see. While size seems like the most important thing, you need to focus on what's going to make you look and feel best for years to come. 

Consider 3D imaging for implant selection

There are many options to be considered when picking a breast implant for a breast augmentation procedure.  You really have not given enough information to aid in determining breast implant size.  Newer breast imaging options are now available and using this technology you will be able to visualize your shape with various implants.

Breast augmentation

What size that can be safely achieved depends on your anatomy and dimension of your chest wall.  So a physical exam would be needed to give you any recommendations.  But going from a C to D cup sounds very reasonable.  Please see a board certified PS to learn more about your options.

I don't see any contraindications to augmentation.  However, you must be examined for sure.  You may need a lift etc.  Also, there are choices in implant style that you must discuss with your doctor.

Candidate for Breast Implants

Without seeing a picture or an examination, I can not tell for sure if you are a candidate.  However going from a C cup to a D cup is generally a very reasonable request.  There are a lot on variables to take into consideration. Such as the width of your chest wall, breast symmetry as well as any ptosis (or sagging) of the breast.  Your surgeon will take all these things into consideration when recommending the size of the implants.  Just make sure you are choosing a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon when deciding on the Dr. you want to do your surgery.
