So many patients have benefited from her expertise, particularly with breast augmentation surgery, which can boost breast size and enhance the curves of your body, making you look more feminine and beautiful.

While many people know that breast implant size is an important part of breast augmentation, not as many people are aware of the importance of breast implant profile. Let's consider this right now.

About Breast Implant Profiles

Breast implant profile refers to the amount of forward projection that a breast implant has. This means that the breast implants with a higher profile will lead to more cleavage and a more prominent bustline and curves.

Why Breast Implant Profile Matters

While breast implant size can have a major effect on the results of breast augmentation surgery, the profile of the implants also make a major difference on the overall procedure. Sometimes a patient may actually benefit from getting slightly smaller breast implants with a higher profile, though this will depend on the patient's frame and body type.

Types of Breast Implant Profiles

There are four different types of breast implant profiles:

  • Moderate Profile Breast Implants - Moderate profile breast implants are considered the standard breast implant profile for augmentation surgery.
  • High Profile Breast Implants - High profile breast implants have the most outward projection and create the most prominent cleavage.
  • Low Profile Breast Implants - Low profile breast implants have the least amount of forward projection.
  • Moderate Plus Profile Breast Implants - Moderate plus profile breast implants offer a little more outward prominence than moderate profile implants but not as much prominence as high profile implants.

Picking the Right Breast Implant Profile for Your Needs

In most cases, the use of low profile breast implants tends to be best for patients who have a broader chest and shoulders. This is more likely to yield natural results. The use of moderate profile, moderate plus profile, and high profile breast implants are generally more ideal for patients who frames and body types are average or slighter in stature.

It's important to note that these are general guidelines for breast implant profiles, and there are many other matters to take into account with regard to selecting an ideal breast implant profile.

Other Factors to Consider for Breast Augmentation Surgery

In addition to breast implant size and breast implant profile, it's important to also consider the shape of the breast implants, the placement of the implants relative to the chest muscle and mammary glands, and the composition of the breast implants themselves.

All of these issues can be discussed in greater detail during your visit to the practice. This will help you in making the most well-informed and confident decision with regard to your overall appearance and wellness.
