I Have Small 34B Breasts, Can I Go to 34D Breasts Without Looking Too Fake?
Thanks for you question and for the posted photos. I think you questions will be best answered in the setting of an in person consulation.
I do note that your breasts are rather widely separated, and that may well be more noticeable with implants.
As a rule, the more implant and less breast tissue, the less natural the outcome. I would not recommend an increase as large as you would like if looking natural is important. Implant size would depend upon, among other things, measurements that would be taken at your consultation. At that time, your questions can best be answered.
All the best.
Implants without looking fake
I would recommend visiting with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your concerns in more detail and try some external sizers to get a feel and visual of what you will look like.
An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and provide true medical advice.

Terminology is also important.I find that not everyone’s idea of a D-cup is the same and this potentially, can lead to confusion as well.
The best approach to resolve this issue is consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.In an effort to minimize confusion, I utilize both implant sizers and the 3D Vectra Computer imaging system.These two systems help the surgeon understand the patient’s aesthetic goals.They also significantly alleviate the anxiety that many patients experience regarding breast implant size.
Natural Looking Breast Implants
You Have To Take a Variety of Measurements First
Implant Selection Process
In order to make an accurate size recommendation, I would need to assess your chest wall and breast mound measurements and characteristics. Unfortunately, there is not a general rule of thumb or objective criteria to implant selection.
Your plastic surgeon will perform several measurements of your chest wall and breast anatomy and determine a range of implants that both fit your chest wall and reach your desired goals.
The next step is to try on this range of implants in the office with your doctor. The key to this success is showing your surgeon the body proportion you desire with a bra sizer and allowing your surgeon to guide you to the right implant. It will be much easier to communicate in implant cc's than cup size when determining the appropriate implant for you.
I wish you a safe recovery and fantastic result.
Reshape and reposition required to achieve the desired look
At size 34 each 100 cc's of implant corresponds to 1 cup size change. I would recommend 200 cc implants to take you from a 34 B to a 34 D. However, your breasts are too far apart. To look like the model shown you will need Breast Augmentation with Mini Ultimate Breast Lift. Using only a circumareola incision it is possible to reshape your breast tissue creating upper pole fullness, elevate them higher on the chest wall and more medial to increase cleavage. Aligning the areola, breast tissue and implant over the bony prominence of the chest wall will give maximum anterior projection with a minimal size implant. Implants alone will not achieve the model look you desire.

Choosing a breast size and look
Here are some general issues to consider from my perspective and experience:
I strongly disagree with Dr. Hayhurst's response. Your bra size in terms of the chest size (34) should not change. Only the cup size within that chest size should change. I also find external sizers to be very misleading in terms of deciding actual implant volume needed and the expected look and result.
The maximum size increase with a properly fitted high profile implant would be 2 cup sizes. If you are a small B then this would be a small D in the same 34 in. chest. By definition, D cup breasts are out of proportion. They can still look "natural" and the patient may be happy with them but they are out of proportion - A, B, and C cup size breasts are the normal range.
The way to size an implant and know that it will fit and look natural (assuming it's properly positioned and healed there) is to make sure the diameter of the implant is about 3/4 to 1 cm less than the upright diameter of your breast across the center and with arms down. This diameter is then looked up in a high profile (saline-filled or gel-filled) and the number of cc's is found -- don't start with the number of cc's and work backwards.
An implant is just a pillow of volume. It does not change the basic characteristics of the breast and specifically does not move them closer together, change the axis of the nipple-areola, or lift them. Your breasts are normal but are a bit wide apart and the axis of the nipple-areolas is not forward pointing. This will not change with a properly done augmentation. One cannot "choose" a look or style of breast. It should look like your breast with its characteristics about 2 cup sizes larger.
