Your Breast Implant Profile

One of the factors that contributes to a natural-looking breast augmentation for my San Jose area patients is choosing the right breast implant profile. Breast implant profile refers to the implant’s degree of forward projection from the chest wall. Breast implants typically come in high, moderate, and low profiles, although there are some more recent variations, such as “moderate plus” or “ultra-high.” Deciding which implant profile to choose will depend on your breast dimensions and chest width.

High Profile

High profile implants are thicker with a smaller base diameter. This style is great for women who want larger implants and more outward projection. They are best-suited to women with a narrow chest frame.

Moderate Profile

Moderate profile implants are slightly thinner and wider than high profile implants and provide medium-level projection. Moderate profile implants provide less upper-pole volume, which some women prefer. This is the standard implant profile for most body types.

Low Profile

Low profile implants have the widest diameter of the three profiles and offer the least amount of projection. This is a good choice for women who want smaller implants and who have a naturally wide frame.
