During your breast augmentation consultation, not only will you be discussing different breast implant options, but you’ll also talk about your desired breast profile. While deciding on saline vs silicone is often expected, many women haven’t yet considered their breast implant profile options.
Understanding what a breast profile is and what it means for your breast augmentation can help you and Dr. Kolder choose the right breast implant for you and your body type.
A breast implant profile refers to how the implant projects forward from the chest when you are standing. Changes in an implant width will affect the implant’s profile. For example, two implants of the same size (same cc volume) can have different profiles. Implants with a narrower base will have a greater profile than those with a wider base.
Breast implants come in three different profiles: low, moderate and high. Each breast implant profile offers different results, and Dr. Kolder will discuss the pros and cons of each. To better understand the differences between each profile, let’s take a closer look.
The best breast implant profile for you depends on your body type and desired results.
So why do implant profiles matter, and what does it mean for you and your breast augmentation? The breast profile that works best for you depends on two main considerations: body proportions and desired results.
Breast implant profiles will look completely different on two women and depend on certain body characteristics, such as chest type and the size of the breast envelope. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kolder will take chest measurements and explain how different profiles will achieve different results.
Which breast implant and implant profile you decide on will also depend on your desired goals. Low or moderate profile implants may provide a more natural and subtle look while high profile implants can deliver a fuller and rounder overall appearance.
