Implants and a "D" cup

Without an exam it is very difficult to suggest what may be the possible cup size after implantation.  Vup size is very variable.  In general, a "B" cup will probably go up a cup or maybe two with that size implant.

Breast augmentation to C or D cup

Cup size, as has been said here by others, is an entirely unscientific and bizarre system which has essentially no consistency among bra manufacturers, or even from country to country. Ultimately, you are better served by helping your surgeon understand the degree of projection you want, either via pictures or using sizers to estimate your target implant size. I never guarantee an exact cup size, but knowing that a patient wants to be more on the "C" side or the "D" side can help with decision making. You need a face-to-face, in person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to adequately answer this. Luckily, there are lots of us!

Again impossible to advise over the internet. No photos posted. My guess is no you will need a larger implant, but it is only a guess. 

340cc vs. 380cc

It's difficult to answer this question without seeing pictures. However, having said that I never guarantee cup size in relation to cc's.  We can guess, more or less, but each bra is manufacturer cuts differently.  CC's  is an actual measurable system.  I  recommend you doing the "rice test" and getting an idea from size from that. 

Breast Implant Size and Resulting Cup Size?

Thank you for the question.

Unfortunately, there is no direct correlation between  the size of breast implants  and the resulting cup size. In other words, no surgeon can promise that a certain breast implant size will result in a certain bra cup size.  I have found that trying to make this correlation is one of the most common sources of patient dissatisfaction after their breast augmentation procedure.

In planning your breast augmentation procedure it will be very important to communicate your size goals with your surgeon.  in my practice I find the use of goal pictures to be very helpful.  in your case you could use your own before breast-feeding pictures as the goal. I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or “large D cup” or "fake looking" or "top heavy" 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.

I use  intraoperative sizers and place the patient in the upright position to evaluate breast size. Use of these sizers also allow me to select the breast implant profile (low, moderate, moderate plus, high-profile) that would most likely achieve the patient's goals. The patient's goal pictures are hanging on the wall, and allow for direct comparison.
I have found that this system is very helpful in improving the chances of achieving the patient's goals as consistently as possible. 
By the way, the most common regret after this operation, is “I wish I was bigger”.

I hope this helps.
