About Breast Implant Profiles: Low, Moderate, Full, And HighPosted on January 6, 2021
Breast Implant Profiles
You need to consider a lot of things when considering a breast augmentation procedure, Incision technique, implant filler type, size, and implant profile are a few important factors you need discuss with your plastic surgeon. Breast implant profile is a relatively new variable in implant options, which an experienced surgeon will take into account while explaining you the best choices.
Implant profile refers to the width of the implant and the extent of forward breast projection from the chest wall when you are standing straight. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides breast augmentation surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities.
Breast Implant Profile Types
There are three basic types of implant profile – low, moderate, and high. Each profile type indicated a different degree of breast projection from the chest wall. Some women prefer subtle and modest appearing breasts, while others want voluptuous and dramatic results.
It’s crucial that you discuss expected results with your surgeon before undergoing the cosmetic surgery. Your surgeon will happily explain implant profile differences in detail. You can also keep reading to know more about different implant profiles.
Low Profile Breast Implant
Low profile implants offer the subtlest changes in the breast appearance. They appear the most natural and are usually proportionate to the rest of the body. Low implant profiles help keep the breasts from projecting forward too much. These profiles are suited to wide framed women. This is because the implants have a wide base diameter. In narrow chested women, the implants may stick too far out from the sides.
Moderate Profile Breast Implant
These are generally recommended by most surgeons. They are considered the standard or “regulars” of the implant profiles. However, they tend to work better on women with narrower frames even though they offer great results in women with any type of breast shape and size.
Moderate implant profiles are a lot like low profiles. They make the chest appear too wide if the natural breast frame is narrow. This can cause the implant to overreach into the cleavage and the underarms. However, in the right body frame, moderate breast implant profiles create full and shapelier breasts.
High Profile Breast Implant
High profile breast implants have the most forward projection. They also have the narrowest base diameters. These implant profiles work best on women with petite and narrow frames. This is because the diameter of the implant base is narrow enough to leave some room for the cleavage in narrow chested women.
Forward projection works well on narrow chested women since it offers optimal breast volume. Women can benefit from having more volume in their upper breast poles. In other words, this profile helps narrow framed women acquire the implants they want without having their chests appear undefined or wide.
Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend ideal implant options based on your existing breast measurements. They will also take your desired goals into account before they determine your candidacy for breast enhancement plastic surgery.
