So, you’ve decided that breast augmentation surgery is in your future, and it’s likely that you have many questions and ideas about what your results will be like. 

Different factors affect the results of your breast augmentation procedure, such as the implant type, size, shape, and breast implant profile. You may have considered the other factors before, but “profile” is one term that might be less obvious than others. 

In this blog post, we’re going to break down what breast implant profiles are and how you can choose the right one for breast augmentation surgery, so read on to learn more. 

Low, moderate, or high breast implants profile? 

The profile of a breast implant refers to how far it will project forward off your chest when you’re standing. The base width of the implants determines the projection, so the narrower the base, the greater the projection. 

Here at New Life Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Lee uses a few different breast implant profiles for breast augmentation: 

  • Low profile implants
  • Moderate profile implants 
  • High profile implants 

You probably guessed it, but low profile implants are the widest with minimal projection from the chest. Moderate profile implants are the most natural-looking and universally flattering, and high profile implants give fuller and obvious results. 

So, which breast implant profile is right for you? 

Well, the better question is, what look are you after? 

High profile breast implants may suit you if you: 

  • Desire more dramatic or prominent results. 
  • Want more fullness in your upper breast region. 
  • Would like the greatest amount of projection from the chest. 

High profile implants have the narrowest width and are usually ideal for women that have small chest width.  If you are wanting projection but not a wide implant then high profile is probably for you. 

However, everyone’s desired results and body type are unique, so rest assured that Dr. Lee will help you determine which projection will fit your current proportions and achieve your enhancement goals. 

Moderate profile breast implants may suit you if you: 

  • Desire a natural-looking result. 
  • Want a larger breast size and some cleavage. 
  • Prefer a balance of volume and cleavage. 
  • Have a regular-sized chest and shoulders. 

One thing to keep in mind when deciding on a profile is that each profile does not change in volume size, but it’s the width that gives each profile a different projection. 

Low profile breast implants may suit you if you: 

  • Desire a natural-looking result. 
  • Have a broader chest. 
  • Want minimal cleavage 
  • Prefer a subtle projection. 

Dr. Lee would recommend a low profile implant if you are currently an A cup and have a wide chest diameter and want minimal projection.  Remember, breast implants come in all shapes and sizes, just like people do. Of course, you can consider which look you’re after, but Dr. Lee and the New Life Cosmetic Surgery team will create a unique breast augmentation plan that’ll help you achieve your desired results.
