Will using an implant under my breast width result in my cleavage being widened in the process?

I have selected a size that is conservative for my frame (as I was told by my PS). I am just worried that my naturally nice and close cleavage gap will be altered as a result of the implant (325cc). I wouldn't want my small cleavage gap to be changed due to selecting an implant too small for my frame and therefor not filling out my natural breast. Please assess my photos and let me know your opinion :) I have asked my PS whether I should use a larger implant (350cc) to avoid this happening, however I do want to remain very subtle and natural in appearance. I am still awaiting a response. So would really appreciate any advice. Thank you.

    Hi there,
    Congratulations on your upcoming breast augmentation surgery! 
    Using an implant under your native breast width is unlikely to widen your naturally nice and close cleavage gap as you put it. With appropriate pre-operative planning in achieving a subtle, yet elegant natural enhancement, the addition of the breast implants will only accentuate your already gifted cleavage lines. Your choice for the implant size can certainly influence the perception of your cleavage, but I don't think it'll widen your cleavage provided the appropriate relevant surgical technique is executed. 
    I personally think you're going to have a fantastic outcome especially with your desires & expectations described. It is natural to have concerns leading to any kind of surgery. Hope this will put your mind at ease a bit in your preparation for your big day!
    Best wishes

    You're an ideal candidate for a breast augmentation and I don't think having an implant will make your cleavage gap larger. If anything, the opposite will happen. Given your athletic frame, a 325cc or 350 cc implant be full but not over the top. Any volume higher than this amount will certainly make you look enhanced. 
    On another note, the difference between 325cc and 350cc can be hard to pick. The difference between them is actually less than a tablespoon so can be hard to pick when spread out over an implant that might be 11 to 12cm in diameter.
    It sounds like you've picked a good PS to help you with your decision. Using a Vectra Simulation for somebody with your shape would be also be very accurate. 
    At Park Clinic we've put together a series of breast augmentation essential videos for our patients. These can be helpful for those about to embark on a breast implant journey.

    Hope this has been helpful.
    Kindest regards,
