Best Breast Implant for Me?
Thank you for the question and picture. Additional pictures (especially side view) may be helpful, given that based on your frontal view you do appear to have some breast asymmetry and ptosis (sagging). This raises the question whether some degree of breast lifting may be beneficial to you.
In regards to choosing the best breast implant size/profile/type for your body type and goals, I suggest you do the following:
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're 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 which operation and/or 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” 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.
I hope this helps.

Even with the posted photos very hard to advise with out an in person examination. From your history I would most likely chose the 310's
Smaller is better than bigger when very physically active
We cannot tell exactly the 'right' implant for you, however if running is very important a smaller implant might work out better than a fuller one. If the look when you were pregnant is what you are after, bring a photo, bra, or examples to your surgeon so he can choose the 'number' and give you the result you want.

From the desciption of your activities and the picture I would say pick the smallest implant that will make you happy. Bigger is not better and the heavier and larger inplant may overload your frame. Good luck and please see a board certified plastic surgeon.
