Breast Implant Profiles
Breast implants come in a wide array of sizes, shapes, and profiles. Profile of an implant determines how forward projecting your breasts will appear. Major implant manufacturers have different names for their implant projection. However, in generic language they are available as low profile, moderate profile, and high-profile implants.
Low profile implants are recommended for women that have significant breasts and are looking to make them a little fuller. Moderate or moderate plus implant profiles are recommended the most by cosmetic surgeons for breast augmentation procedures.
High profile implants offer the most dramatic results in terms of forward projection. They are most suited to women that have narrow chests and little breast tissues. They are also recommended for women wanting fuller and rounder breasts. It’s vital that you work with your plastic surgeon in determining the most suitable type of breast implants.

When to Choose High-Profile Implants?
Many patients erroneously assume that high profile refers to sitting higher on the chest. However, it means that the implant type will have the maximum forward projection. High profile implants allow cosmetic surgeons to incorporate maximum volume without being limited by the breast base width. They offer a significant degree of fullness in the upper pole of the breasts.
Plastic surgeons generally position the breast implants under the pectoral muscle. This allows the transition in the upper breast pole to appear softer. High profile breast implants are unique to providing the maximum fullness and roundness of breasts. High profile implants are ideal for women with narrow chest walls desiring a prominent cleavage through their cosmetic surgery.
Candidates for Intermediate and Low Profile Implants
Low and moderate profile implants are best suited for women that prioritize natural looking results through their breast augmentation plastic surgery. These implants work on filling out the breast well without resulting in an overdone appearance. This is especially true for implants placed under the pectoral muscle.
Low-profile implants are particularly helpful for women that have wide chest wall base and are not looking to add significant volume to the breast size. Women with wide natural base may not find moderate and high-profile implants comfortable since the implant will be too narrow to fill out the breast base well properly. There will be better balance with low-profile implants since they have a wide base.
Choosing the Right Breast Implant Profile
Each body is unique with different characteristics. This makes it important to discuss your aesthetic goals and expected results with the cosmetic surgeon before choosing an implant. Your surgeon will explain available options and what they can do for you.
They will also discuss the pros and cons of saline versus silicone breasts and the different profile types. If required, you can ask the treatment provider to show before and after pictures of the surgery on women with similar body types.
