About Breast Implant Profiles: Low, Moderate, And High

Breast Implant Profiles

There are pivotal decisions you need to take before having your breast augmentation procedure. You need to consider various variables whether you are looking to improve breast shape, add more volume, or increase their size. Breast implant profile is a major variable when it comes to attaining the right breast shape.

Your cosmetic surgeon will explain the pros and cons of various breast profiles. They will also let you know that different profiles have different effects on different body types. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides breast augmentation to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding locations.

Implant Profile for a Dramatic Change

High profile implants offer the most dramatic results. They have a narrow base and project more forwards as compared to moderate breast implants. They also have more volume in the upper breast poles. High profile implants are recommended for petite women desiring in a dramatic change in the appearance of their breasts.

A key benefit to these implants is that the side wall adds more height. This in turn reduces the risk of visible breast tissue rippling following your breast augmentation plastic surgery. At the time of your initial consultation, your surgeon will determine your candidacy and recommend the most appropriate type of implants.

Implant Profile for a Subtle Change

Low implant profiles are recommended for women with broad shoulders and chest. They look the most natural and offer only the subtlest forward projection from the chest wall. These implants are best suited to older candidates desiring shape over volume.

Popular Implant Profile

Moderate implant profiles offer natural, rounder, and fuller looking results. They work well on women with narrow chests that want natural appearing results. This implant profile doesn’t result in too much forward projection that may look overly done. However, it is enough to offer satisfactory results since it increases the volume and size of the breasts.

Moderate plus profile is a sub-category that is between moderate and high implant profile. Women who have lost volume in their breasts because of aging can benefit from moderate plus profiles, which offers a natural breast appearance.

Picking the Right Breast Implant Profile

Women that seek a breast augmentation cosmetic surgery procedure should have realistic expectations about the kind of physique they are looking for. This includes the shape and size of their breasts after the procedure. The implant profile you choose will play a major role in defining the end result. Each profile style lies differently on the breast base to create different results.

Women that have narrow chest walls or base widths may prefer getting a high profile implant while women with broad breast base diameters may opt for low profile implants. Women falling in between may decide either moderate plus or moderate profile to satisfy their volume and projection needs.

Choosing the right profile type along with type and size is important to acquire your expected end results. This makes it important to consult with a qualified surgeon that can help you identify the right breast implants.
