Will going up 100 cc make a huge difference? Is it worth the risk if I didn't have a lot of breast tissue to begin with?

Is 100cc increase enough for my breast augmentation?
Despite the occasional claim that someone felt they went too big, the bulk of our patients all comment that, given the chance to do it over again, they would have gone larger. With saline implants, a 100 cc increase does produce a noticeable difference. But this is not the case with the silicone gel implants.
As a Plastic Surgeon who does a fair amount of breast implant revision surgeries, most of my patients want to justify the cost of surgery with a result that is truly noticeable (not crazy big but definitely noticeable). As such, I usually start with at least a 100 cc increase but usually go a little larger than that. I would agree with throwing out a target cup size and instead identifying photos that show a proportionate look that you are trying to achieve. No one is ever going to comment that they love your "C" cups but they will certainly compliment you on your overall look.
I encourage you to post a few photos of your "before" look or at least provide measurements. From there, we can probably give you a little better idea of what you would benefit from.
I hope that helps!
Virtually any size breast implant can be placed at the time of breast augmentation.
Implant size change considerations

1. There is no formula relating cc of implant volume to cup sizes. Period. As an aside, you should let go of what cup size you think you want. It's just a bad way to think about breast size. More important is how you look in the mirror.
2. More important than the number of cc you might want to increase is the percentage of change from your current volume. Generally, very small increase is 20%, small 30%, medium 40% to 50%, and large 50% to 100%. So, a 100cc increase is a 28% enlargement. 150cc is 43%.
3. You may not be a great candidate for this size implant, and switching out to an implant of this size may end up backfiring on you with complications.
Best of luck!
