What size implants
Be sure you discuss the pros and cons of the large implant before have surgery. You will hurt much more after surgery (assuming it is put under the muscle) as well as be more likely to need additional surgery as time goes by. As a comparison, in the long ago days when a 250 cc implant was considered large, apart from capsules, re-operations were uncommon. Today, with larger implants, re-operation occurs about 20% of the time. Best wishes.

Big implants have more long term problems
600 cc high profile implants may look too large for you; 475 should give you good volume based in your pictures.
Of course, a formal virtual or in-person consultation would be required to determine your ideal procedure.
Augmentation patients do need to understand that larger implants have higher long term revision rates and will stretch the skin and flatten the breast tissue. Some problems may be irreversible. Patients need to seriously consider these risks, especially when they start with good breast esthetics.
I hope this information helps. Good luck. --Dr G.
High profile 600 cc breast implants are quite large
That said based on your photograph you appear to have full wide-based breast. The high-profile implants have a narrower base and a wider base moderate profile plus might be an appropriate implant for you.
Be aware that 600 cc breast implants are quite large. In general potential complications are higher with implants over 500 cc based on a recent study. Your original thought of a 475 cc breast implant might be a better option.
