I just had breast augmentation this past Wednesday the 14th and I was hoping to be a small D. My original cup size was 34 B and I have 330C implants. They do not look as big as I expected and I am thinking I may not meet my goal cup size. Please advise.

An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and provide true medical advice.

The breasts certainly will not get bigger but give them time to settle in. If you want larger, you will have to wait.
Bra size after implants
I try not to get too involved with bra and cup sizes with my patients. I do ask just to get a general idea of how large the patients is looking to be after surgery. I ask every patient what bra size they are wearing at their initial consultation and the vast majority answer that question with a short story about their size and what fits and what used to fit and what bar they are wearing now but that they don't fill the cup. So the starting bar size is really not definite.
Bra sizes are not standardized so different manufacturers make different sized bras and different cup sizes. It is definitely too early to say what your final bra size will be. I would be more focused on how you look rather than solely on your final cup size. Judging by the photos the shape and size looks good for this many days after surgery. I would give things a bit more time before making a final judgement.
Thank you for the photos and best of luck.
Breast size after surgery
It is far too early to make any prediction about final size. And bra sizing is not standardized. It looks to me like you will have a very nice shape after the swelling decreases and things settle down a bit. Try to be patient. And try not to get too hung up on a particular size but more on how your breasts appear in relation to the rest of your body.
