Breast Implant Profiles
Breast augmentation results can be impacted by several different factors. For instance, the choice of implant size, shape, type, and profile play a vital role in the end result. Your cosmetic surgeon will explain the various options available to you during the planning phase. They will discuss the various pros and cons and recommend plastic surgery options most likely to achieve the desired outcome.
The three popular breast implant profiles recommended by cosmetic surgeons are:
- Moderate plus profile implants
- High profile implants
- Ultra high profile implants
Each of these options has unique characteristics, but can achieve significantly beautiful results in a patient depending on their chest size. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides breast augmentation surgery to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.
When to Consider Moderate Plus Profile Breast Implants?
Moderate plus profile breast implants result in the least amount of forward breast projection owing to the widest base diameter. This allows them to provide natural looking breasts as compared to other options. They are recommended for women with wide chests.
Suitable candidates should have one or the following characteristics:
- Desire prominent cleavage
- Want to achieve highly natural results
- Do not mind a relatively flat breast appearance
Who Should Get High Profile Breast Implants?
High profile breast implants result in more forward projection as opposed to moderate plus profile implants. However, the projection is less than ultra high profile implants. This profile option produces natural results too, but is suitable for petite women with narrower chest walls.
To get the best results from high profile breast implants cosmetic surgery, you should:
- Desire natural looking breasts
- Prefer a balance of cleavage and volume
- Want larger breast size with a more prominent cleavage
Ideal Candidates for Ultra High Profile Breast Implants
Ultra high profile breast implants allow the most forward projection because of narrow base widths. This option is effective in petite women with very narrow chest frames.
Your surgeon may recommend this option if you:
- Desire fuller breasts
- Prefer dramatic appearance
- Want maximum forward projection
Choosing the Right Breast Implant
The breast implant profile you choose will have a direct impact on the final outcome. You should consider the following factors while making a decision:
- Your selected implant size
- Your body type
- Final breast appearance desired
Your existing body proportions will also play a role in determining the ideal implant profile. This is because the same implant size and type can have very different results in different body types. Your plastic surgeon will evaluate the width of your chest, your frame size, and the amount of breast tissue you possess naturally.
The surgeon will also take your aesthetic goals and desires into consideration. For instance, are you looking for more forward projection and dramatic results or something that appears more natural and flatter? Answering such questions correctly will help you identify the right implant profile.
