Breast Implant Profiles
Choosing a breast implant profile is one of the most important considerations in a breast augmentation plastic surgery procedure. Breast implant profile describes the extent of forward projection of the implants from the chest wall when standing. There are varying levels of implant projection depending on the width of the diameter of the implant base.
You can attain greater projections with narrower bases. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides breast augmentation to patients in Cleveland, Beachwood, Pepper Pike and Lyndhurst, OH, and surrounding locations.
Types of Breast Implant Profile
These are the options available:
- Low profile
- Moderate profile
- Moderate plus profile
- High profile
- Ultra-high profile
Low profile implants offer minimal forward projection resulting in a relatively flat appearance. They are best suited to women with wider chests.
Moderate profile implants offer slightly more forward projection as opposed to low profile implants, but nothing compared to high profile implants. This option is usually recommended for women seeking naturally-appearing implants. They are suited to women with narrower or smaller chests.
High profile implants offer maximum chest forward projection. They create roundest and fuller looking breasts. High profile breast implants seldom appear natural, but create the most impact. They are usually recommended for petite women with narrow chest walls.
Factors Determining Ideal Breast Implant Profile
Your unique needs and preferences should dictate the type of breast implant profile you get. You should also consider the following three factors while deciding the right profile for your breast enhancement cosmetic surgery:
It is possible for the same breast implant size (cc volume) to deliver completely different results in different women. These differences are owing to the unique features and body types of the women receiving the implants. It is important to ensure that the profile you ultimately select balances your overall figure and appearance.
Breast and Chest Dimensions
Breast width is another vital factor while considering implant profile options. Your breast width plays a crucial role in determining the maximum diameter base that can be fitted inside your breasts to achieve the kind of look, shape, and size you desire.
Your cosmetic surgeon will identify your aesthetic goals and recommend profile options that are best suited to meet those goals. The surgeon will ask you whether you are looking for subtle and natural looking results or something more forward. It’s crucial that you discuss your preferences in detail with the cosmetic surgeon.
Is There an Ideal Breast Implant Profile?
There is no implant profile that can be called the best or most suitable. You need to identify your personal aesthetic goals. Implant profile vary from woman to woman depending on individual body characteristics and desired end results.
It is important that you envision what the breast implants will look like after the procedure. In specific, you should decide whether you want fuller and prominent looking breasts or a more natural enhancement.
