Ask for D's. Measuring a 36C?

Have a C wanted a D?
There is no predictable way achieve a certain cup size. No one knows how to consistently do this! In your case, with 500 cc I think the issue is not a bigger breast implant, but body proportions and where you buy your bra. You should wait a full year, lose a little weight and follow a balanced diet before revision surgery.

Wanted D cups, got C's
Breast Implant Size
The size of the implants are based on a combination of a patient's goals and objectives and her anatomy. In order to provide a natural looking augmentation, the surgeon needs to evaluate many factors including soft tissue coverage, skin laxity, chest wall width, breast imprint width, the shape of the breasts and relative level of constriction to ensure that the breast implants are appropriate for your body.

Concerns after breast augmentation…
Generally speaking, every patient undergoing breast augmentation surgery should understand that their anatomic starting point will limit the outcome of breast augmentation surgery. In other words, a patient's starting anatomy will limit how large of a breast implant can be utilized safely. The use of a larger breast implant (than what is safely "allowed" by the patient's anatomy) can be problematic; potential problems include breast implant displacement/malpostion issues ( such as bottoming out, lateral displacement, symmastia...) and/or significant breast implant rippling/palpability.
Keep in mind also that there is no reliable correlation between breast implant size utilized and cup achieve; there is simply too much variation in cup sizes to allow for use of cup sizes as a reference point. In my practice, I ask patients not to communicate their goals and/or judge the outcome of surgery based on achieving specific cup sizes. In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. For example, I have found that the use of know words such as “natural” or "D cup” etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful.
I would suggest continued follow-up with your plastic surgeon; if in the longer term you remain displeased with your breast size, re augmentation with larger breast implants may be an option. Best wishes for an outcome that you will be very pleased with.
