I'm thinking of going bigger next year. Would 550cc look big on me? (Photo)

Increasing Implant Size by 100 cc's.
Again, without an exam I can't be completely sure, but from your height, weight, and photo I would say that 450 cc's is at (or even a little beyond) your maximum.
Hope this helps!

Yes, it's very possible that going with a larger implant may lead to complications. Sagging is one possible side effect. Typically, the #pocket would require adjustment and a lift may be necessary; to better #support larger implants. Additionally, a mesh for further support may be helpful depending on the #implant size and skin #elasticity.
As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic. With any surgical procedure, there are some risks which your doctor will discuss with you during your consultation. It's highly suggested to consult with board-certified plastic surgeons who are also specialized in breast surgery and cosmetic surgery are suitable to perform breast augmentation. This will help you learn what it is best for you and your situation.
Going with Larger Implants
By looking at this single photo view,you appear to be a DD or larger. Going larger is always a possibility, but you will be more like to deal with droop, implant malposition, stretch marks, and back strain. Only you can decide if it is worth increasing the risk for these above issues to be an additional 1/2 cup or one cup larger breast size. Your results look great already. Hope that helps.

Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering revisionary 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 are 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 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 "D or DD 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.
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 ( after the use of temporary intraoperative sizers). Viewing the patient's chest wall in the upright and supine positions, with temporary sizes in place, help select the best breast implant size/profile for the specific patient.
I hope this, and the attached link (dedicated to larger breast augmentation surgery concerns), helps. Best wishes.
