Choosing The Right Implant For a Breast Augmentation

Choosing the right implants is one of the most important, and difficult, parts of a breast augmentation surgery. They come in many shapes, sizes, and even profiles, so it’s important to take your time and do your research to ensure you find the one that best fits your needs.

While talking to your plastic surgeon about your options is the most effective way of finding the right implant, it’s also important to do your own research, especially when it comes to an implant’s profile.

What is an Implant Profile?

An implant profile refers to how far off your chest an implant will extend (the amount of projection it has). Today, to suit all needs, implants are available in many different profiles, including:

  • low profile
  • moderate profile
  • moderate-plus profile
  • high profile
  • ultra-high profile

How important is the profile of an implant?

Because the profile of an implant will impact the final appearance of your breasts after an augmentation, they are a very important consideration, especially if you want to achieve a natural look. Your plastic surgeon will use their deep understanding of human anatomy and breast shape to help you choose the right implant projection.

Low Profile Implants

Low profile implants are relatively flat and only project minimally off your chest. They are ideal for patients who have wider chests.

Moderate Profile Implants

The majority of patients opt for moderate profile implants as these will give them the noticeable, yet natural, results they are looking for. Typically, it is suggested for women who have small or narrow chests.

High Profile Implants

When compared to the rest of the implants, high profile implants give the most projection and provide the fullest results. This type of implant will work for women who are petite or who have a very narrow chest wall.

Book a Breast Augmentation Consultation

Breast augmentation is a great way to enhance your appearance and implant profiles are a powerful tool your surgeon can use to change the shape of your breasts. Such a professional will be able to use your unique body characteristics and goals to help choose the right projection for your implants.
