Breast Implant Profiles – Your Options Available

Breast Implant profiles were not thought about until recently. Most patients only discussed breast implant shapes and size with their plastic surgeons. If you chose a certain size breast implant, you would receive a predetermined amount of forwarding projection from that size implant. Choosing breast implant shape may seem complicated since manufacturers have so many styles in their lineups. However, it’s really only a matter of making two choices. The first choice is the breast implant shape; the second choice is the breast implant profile. Shape refers to the actual shape of the implant, round or anatomical. Profile refers to the distance the implant projects off the chest wall. The Third Choice is the surface of the implant

When breast augmentation patients meet with their Thailand surgeons to discuss the many implant options that are available to them. They not only need to decide on a specifically sized implant but determine the amount of forwarding projection. The projection is based on what is appropriate for the patient. In the past, implants came with a standard projection, or profile, based on the size of the implant that women choose. Today, surgeons and patients work together to select an implant that is the right size providing the desired projection and cleavage. The most important criterion for profile selection is the base diameter of the breast.

Breast Implant Profile Options

Breast Implant profiles

Low Profile Breast Implant

The low profile implant shell is wider (larger diameter) and flatter (less height or depth) than moderate profile breast implants. This implant style is commonly used for women who have a wide broad chest frame. The extra width of the implant shell will fill the chest anatomy correctly, achieving a natural look and realistic cleavage. The implant will not project as far off the body as other implant styles. Thus making it the right choice for women who want fullness. This provides a  not to overly round and obviously enhanced look. The main criteria used to select low profile implants are the base diameter of the breast and dimensions of the chest. The implant should be smaller than the base diameter of the natural breast mound, which is often substantial in wider framed women.

Moderate  Breast Implant Profiles

The low profile implant shell is wider (larger diameter) and flatter (less height or depth) than moderate profile breast implants. This implant style is commonly used for women who have a wide broad chest frame. The extra width of the implant shell will fill the chest anatomy correctly. The result, achieving a natural look and realistic cleavage. The implant will not project as far off the body as other implant styles,. This makes it the right choice for women who want fullness, but not an overly round and obviously enhanced look.

The main criteria used to select low profile implants are the base diameter of the breast and dimensions of the chest. The implant should be smaller than the base diameter of the natural breast mound, which is often substantial in wider framed women.

Moderate Plus Breast Implant Profiles

Moderate plus implants are a half step compromise between traditional moderate profile implants and popular new high profile implants. The moderate plus profile is perfect for women who want a bit more projection than is typically provided by a moderate profile, but not as much projection as is found with the high profile shell.

High Breast Implant Profiles

High profile implants project the further off the chest wall when compared to other common implant profiles. The high profile implant will achieve this projection by having a smaller base diameter than an identically sized (in cc’s) moderate or low profile implant shell. By decreasing the diameter of the shell, but keeping the same fill volume, the manufacturer is able to increase the depth or forward projection.

High profile implants are perfect for women with a narrower chest frame who still want a considerable size increase during their breast augmentation surgery. Instead of using a wider base diameter moderate implant, the doctor will choose a narrower high profile shell which will suit the patient’s anatomy and project out to accommodate the volume of the filler material. This modified mastopexy, like many breast lift operations, sometimes squares off the breast shape slightly, making it appear wider and less round. The shape of the high profile implant shell restores the rounded shape of the breast, while still allowing the considerable benefits of the mastopexy lift.

While some studies say that these high profile shells reduce visible wrinkling and rippling, the reasoning given is generally incorrect. Wrinkling and rippling often occur when a woman with a narrow chest frame desires large implants. The base diameter of her natural breasts is smaller than the base diameter of her implants. This distortion causes the wrinkling and rippling which can be so unappealing to many affected patients. By utilizing a proper fitting high profile implant with a base diameter smaller than the natural breast width, the surgeon can guarantee a good fit with no implant shell distortion.

Ultra High Breast Implant Profiles

Ultra High Profile implants available are through Mentor, this implant provides the narrowest base and highest projection. They are only available in Round shape and up to 495cc. Ultra High profile implants are perfect for women with a narrower chest frame who still want a considerable size increase. Instead of using a wider base diameter implant, the doctor may choose the ultra high profile breast implant. i. This may suit the patient’s anatomy and project out to be able to accommodate the volume of the filler material.

There are two ways to increase projection in an implant. The first way is to add more volume to the implant. The other way to add projection is to make the base (diameter) of the implant smaller. Thus for any given volume, a smaller base has more projection. This is what ‘high profile’ implants do—they have a smaller diameter with a higher projection.
