Focus on Breast Augmentation Part 8: Implant Profiles
From the moment you first investigate breast implants, you know certain questions to ask — for example, saline of silicone gel, periareolar or transaxillary or trans-umbilical incision. As you learn more and start to consider your options, you will also discover there is another decision to be made: implant profile.
Profile is first dependent upon shape. Round implants come in different profiles, and the profile of the implant is related to the relative projection of the implant’s diameter, or base width.
In short, the higher the profile, the more the implant “projects” away from the chest wall.
Profiles may be moderate, moderate profile plus, or high profile.
With silicone, the dimensions are different but the concept is the same.
In general, lower profile implants tend to give a more natural look. If you are seeking a natural-looking result, the lowest profile available for the implant size you desire will typically give you a more natural look.
If you desire a look that “stands out,” higher profile is your choice!
The best way to make this decision is to let Dr. Farzaneh know what you desire, and he will recommend an appropriate implant profile for you. He will show you the effect different profiles will produce, and you can make an informed decision in consultation with him.
