Seeking first breast augmentation (
You appear to be a good candidate for a breast augmentation surgery with silicone or even saline implants if you prefer. Be careful to avoid going too large although achieving a 34 C/D cup size is probably attainable while maintaining a natural look. My preference based on three decades of experience is the use of mid or mid+ profile cohesive gel implants in a partial subpectoral position. Watch the video I've posted above to learn how I most accurately choose an implant size. I also offer my patients the addition of a pain pump (tiny catheters bathe the pockets with numbing medicine) to reduce discomfort.
Good luck and enjoy your results.

Thank you for your question. It appears as though a breast augmentation with the implant below the muscle would be an appropriate option.
All the best.
Hello, your breast shape and nipple position look normal with no sagging, so for this type of breast shape I usually insert the implants under the muscle. Your surgeon will be able to provide detailed advice about the size.
You appear to be a great candidate for a breast augmentation. Any implant will look great due to your pre-operative anatomy.

Breast augmentation would be reasonable. You may have it through the belly button to avoid scars on the breast. You may also have it through the armpit. I would seek out a plastic surgeon who can give you all of your options.

Breast Implant Sizing
The exact choice of size that will work best for you is an important decision that you should make with your board certified plastic surgeon. 3D Vectra imaging and simulation, the Mentor gel sizing system, rice filled implants at home in your bra, and bio-dimensional analysis are all methods that can be employed to help you come to a decision. Because size is such an important component of decision making in breast augmentation our office employs all of these techniques with each patient to ensure the highest rate of satisfaction possible. Good luck with your decision!
Primary breast augmentation
You are a terrific candidate for breast augmentation surgery. Saline or silicone implants will look great as long as they are placed under the muscle. Silicone will be softer and look less round. There really is nothing complicated about your situation. Implants will simply make you a bigger and fuller version of what you are right now which will look fantastic. You just need to think very carefully about what you wish your breasts to look like with respect to cup size, cleavage, lateral line (side boob), and upper pole shape (natural or more round looking). Try to find some topless photos that represent your goals and bring them to your consultation with a respected, board-certified plastic surgeon that you trust and an office staff you click with. I hope this information helps!

No further recommendations
but you should know what your surgeon's revision policy just in case you need it. But if things go as they usually do, you should be fine. Best wishes!
