Choosing the Right Breast Implant Profile for You
There are so many decisions to make when you decide to have a Houston breast augmentation. First, you need to decide on a plastic surgeon. Then, you need to choose your desired cup size and implant size. You also need to decide on your incision type, as it will affect how symmetrical your results will be and where your scar is hidden. But did you know that you also need to choose a breast implant profile? Continue reading this blog post to learn more about how to make this important breast augmentation surgery decision.
What is a Breast Implant Profile?
A Breast implant profile refers to how much the implant will stick out when you are standing. Silicone breast implants come in three implant types – low, medium and high. The difference between these three implant types is their diameters. A low implant profile has a larger diameter than a medium implant profile, and a medium implant profile has a larger diameter than a high implant profile. As for the end results, a low implant profile will stick out less than a medium implant profile, and a high implant profile will stick out the most.
How Do I Decide Which Implant Profile Is Right for Me?
Deciding what you want your breast implants to look like after your breast augmentation procedure is a very personal decision. But, your board certified Houston plastic surgeon can help you make these breast augmentation surgery decisions. First, it’s all about your measurements, both your chest measurements and the height and width of your breast footprint. When your Houston breast augmentation plastic surgeon examines you, he or she will take these measurements to help suggest an implant profile for you.
Second, you need to be precise and communicate what you honestly want your results to look like. Most doctors find that terms like “natural” or “full” can be relative and differ from person to person. For this reason, Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig highly recommend that you bring in pictures of what you want your breasts to look like, whether they are pictures of actual breast augmentation surgery results that you have found on plastic surgery websites or pictures in magazines that show the size and profile of breasts that seems to match the most closely to your desired end results.
Once you have had your measurement taken and have shown Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig your desired breast augmentation results, they will be able to recommend a breast profile for you. Both Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig have several years of experience helping Houston women choose both implant size and profile, and they make their recommendations based off of those years of experience and keep in mind the results that you desire. After all, a breast augmentation is a very personal surgery, one that you’ll only be happy with if your wishes are considered and implemented.
