What Patients Should Know About Breast Implant Profiles By Vishnu Rumalla on December 27, 2013

What Patients Should Know About Breast Implant ProfilesGetting breast augmentation means more than just selecting large breast implants. There are numerous factors to keep in mind that can affect the overall quality of the surgical results. When you meet with a plastic surgeon for a breast augmentation consultation, you'll be able to learn more about all of the factors that come into consideration when receiving breast implants.

Right now we'd like to consider one aspect of breast implants that some patients do not consider: breast implant profile.

About Breast Implant Profiles

Breast implant profile refers to the amount of outward projection and depth that the breast implants are able to provide. This essentially affects the cleavage that can be achieved through the surgery. There are different profiles of breast implants that can meet the various need of patients, which we'll consider in brief below.

Low Profile Breast Implants

Low profile breast implants have the least amount of outward projection. In many cases, low profile breast implants are an ideal option for women who have wider chest diameters.

Moderate Profile Breast Implants

Moderate profile breast implants are essentially the standard for breast implant projection. They are the middle ground with regard to projection.

Moderate Plus Profile Breast Implants

Moderate plus profile breast implants are a step up from moderate profile breast implants, but they do not provide the same level of projection as high profile breast implants during breast augmentation surgery.

High Profile Breast Implants

High profile breast implants provide the greatest amount of outward projection. In many cases, high profile breast implants are ideal for women who have narrower chest diameters.

Which profile is the best for me?

Everyone's aesthetic goals are different, so there isn't just one way to achieve the curves and bustline that you've always wanted. For example, sometimes breast implant profile rather than breast implant size may have a better effect on your overall appearance and vice versa. In addition, a woman's body type (particularly with regard to her frame and chest size) will also determine the ideal profile and size of her breast implants. Numerous factors need to be considered and weighed to make sure that you get the right treatment for your needs.

Helping You Make the Best Decisions About Breast Augmentation Surgery

During your breast augmentation consultation, we will talk with you about all of your aesthetic goals. We will then develop a treatment plan just for you that takes into account your frame, your aesthetic goals, and other matters related to surgery.

It's important to us that you understand the various phases of breast augmentation surgery and what is involved so that you achieve results that you can be happy with.
