Breast Implant Profiles
Breast implant profile describes the extent of forward projection of implants when you are standing. The profile deals with how your breasts shall appear from a side view. Standing in front of the mirror sideways should give you a good idea of your current breast profile.
You should note that implant profile doesn’t directly relate to its forward projection which is dependent on the base diameter. Breast implants are characterized by several different profiles.

Low Profile Breast Implant
Low profiles have the least projection owing to their broadest base width. The implants appear flat when looked sideways. However, they do offer a natural looking appearance and moderate cleavage. Women with full breast width and a broad chest frame are suitable for low profile implants.
Moderate Profile Breast Implant
Moderate profile breast implants have slightly narrower base diameters and offer more projection as opposed to low profile implants. These are the gold standard because they allow for natural looking breasts without compromising on fullness and volume. Women with medium breast width and chest walls are recommended this profile option.
Moderate Plus profile offers a forward projection falling between moderate and high profile. These are ideal for women desiring more projection with medium breast width and chest frame.
High Profile Breast Implant
High implant profiles provide more projection as compared to moderate and low profile. They have significantly narrow base widths, which gives the breast implant a fuller and rounder look. The fullness is concentrated on the upper pole of the breasts making the implants ideal for women with narrow breast width and petite frames.
Very high profiles or ultra-high breast profiles offer maximum fullness with the narrowest base diameters. They provide excellent fullness and forward projection after a breast augmentation plastic surgery.
Selecting Ideal Breast Implant Profiles
Many women believe that low profile breast implants are more focused on the central region of the breasts while high profile implants provide fullness towards the collar bone. This is an incorrect understanding. In fact, the opposite is true.
High profile implants tend to project the most from the chest. They push out the lower and central parts of the breast, which creates rounder and pointy looking breasts. Whereas, low profile implants create softer or flatter breasts by pushing the areolas from the chest wall.
Breast implants should only be chosen after considering and evaluating all key elements. Dimensions of the breasts should be selected after consulting with a plastic surgeon. Your surgeon will recommend ideal cosmetic surgery options based on your body contours and aesthetic goals.
Generally, slightly narrower implant dimensions than actual breast dimensions is recommended for natural looking breasts. Breasts can appear distorted if the implants exceed the natural borders and dimensions of the breasts resulting in an artificially augmented and unnatural look.
