Large size after mastectomy
I would caution you in increasing your size this much following mastectomy. As you over expand your overlying tissues they will continue to thin. This will lead to minimal tissue over the implant and an unnatural result prone to complications. Fat grafting is a better options for size increase, although you may not have a large donor site given your height/weight. Listen to what your surgeon is telling you. I would encourage you to get further opinions so that you are comfortable with the recommendation.
