Breast Implant Profiles
Your cosmetic surgeon will have a pre-op consultation with you, which will involve detailed planning for your breast augmentation surgery. The surgeon will discuss the various types of implant shapes, sizes, position, and profiles on offer. While most factors are self-explanatory, it can get difficult to understand breast implant profile.
Implant profile refers to the degree of forward projection. This is the extent to which your breasts project when looked at from the side. You should always choose a breast implant that fits perfectly with your existing physique and effortlessly combines volume, width, and profile.

Options for Implant Profile
Breast implants even when with the same volume and size can offer very different profiles. Breast profile depends greatly on the implant base width. Narrower bases have more forward projection as compared to wider ones. These are explained in detail below:
- Low profile: These implants don’t offer much projection and are comparatively flatter. They are best recommended for women with wide chests. The results are more subtle and discreet with teardrop-shaped breasts.
- Moderate profile: These are slightly thicker and offer more forward projection as compared to low profile implants. Results are attractive and natural looking on women that have narrow or small chests.
- High profile: High profile implants are thicker as compared to their counterparts. They are very narrow at the base offering the most forward projection. They offer rounder and fuller looking breasts with a highly prominent cleavage. These implants are suited to petite women with narrow chests.
How to Pick a Profile Ideal for You
Different implant profiles offer different outcomes in different body types. Your surgeon will explain implant profiles in detail. They will also recommend the best option based on your body measurements and desired goals for breast enhancement cosmetic surgery. The following factors are taken into consideration while determining the ideal profile type:
Your cosmetic surgeon as part of the pre-surgery consultation will take detailed measurements of your chest. They will match these to the implant profile. You should choose a profile that makes your body appear more balanced and natural in a harmonious way.
The plastic surgeon will ask you several questions to attain a deeper understanding of your expectations from the breast augmentation procedure. Few surgeons make use of 3D imaging to show how different implant choices will look on you. This can go a long way in envisioning the outcomes and choosing the right implant profile.
