Breast Implants Profile Types

Breast Augmentation ConnecticutA breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures that Houston plastic surgeons Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig perform. It’s probably also one of the most well-known types of procedures in the United States, too. Many Houston women are aware that if you are getting a breast augmentation, you need to choose your plastic surgeon, your cup size, and implant type. You also need to choose your incision type – whether you’ll have your implants placed through incisions on the breast, inside the belly button or under the arm.

But, are you aware that when it comes to getting a breast augmentation, you also need to choose a breast implant profile? This decision, which will affect how far your breast implants stick out, will make a huge impact on what your new silhouette looks like. Read on to learn more.

What Are the Available Breast Implant Profiles?

There are three breast implant profile types – low, medium and high. The differences between these breast implant profile types are the diameters. The larger the implant diameter, the lower the profile is. Therefore, the following is true:

  • A low profile implant has the highest diameter, and sticks out the least;
  • A medium profile implant has a mid-sized diameter, and sticks out more than a low profile implant, but less than a high profile implant; and
  • A high profile implant has the smallest diameter, and sticks out more than a medium profile implant.

Choosing the Right Breast Implant Profile for You

It can be hard to make technical decisions such as which breast implant profile you want all on your own. Granted, you alone have to be satisfied with your decision, but still, deciding on technical aspects of breast implants is something that is best made in consultation with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig are both Yale-trained and have years of experience helping Houston women choose their breast implant profile type. During a consultation with them, they will take your body’s measurements to suggest a breast implant profile that will be aesthetically pleasing to your natural physique.

In addition to consulting with Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig, it is important that you think about what you want your breast augmentation results to look like. Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig recommend that you communicate your desired look by sharing photos of what you want your breasts to look like from all angles, front and side, to best determine which breast implant profile is right for you and your unique case.
