Breast augmentation is an art. The breasts are one of the most complex and unique anatomical forms on the human body, and Dr. Sayed firmly believes every patient deserves a treatment plan that is as unique and special as they are. One of the most significant decisions you’ll make alongside Dr. Sayed’s expert guidance is what implant profile best suits your goals and anatomy.
There are various sizes, materials, incision locations, and implant placement options that all have their own benefits, depending on your desired results. Implant profile is another one of the major players in how your breast augmentation will look. Implant “profiles” mean how far your implants will project off of the chest wall when you’re standing.
Depending on the width of your implants, Dr. Sayed can customize your level of projection. The smaller the implant base width, the greater projection you’ll achieve.
Implant Profile Options
There are several options to choose from when it comes to picking implant profiles. Patients can choose between either low, moderate, or high profile implants. Low profile implants are relatively flat in appearance and provide minimal projection off the chest. These are often best suited to women with wider chests. Low profile implants are also ideal for women hoping to achieve very subtle and natural-looking enhancement of the breast’s size and shape.
Moderate profile implants are an excellent option for women looking to substantially improve the size and shape of their breasts but may not be ready to commit to the dramatic enhancement high profile implants provide. These implants also provide very natural-looking results. If you have a narrow or smaller chest, moderate profile implants may be your best option.
High profile implants provide the most significant projection and a prominent, full, and rounded breast appearance. Patients should expect a significant increase in bra size as well. In some cases, high profile implants may look less natural compared to other options. Dr. Sayed usually recommends these implants for petite women with narrow chest walls.
Which Implant Profile is Right for Me?
Determining which implant profile is right for you is deeply personal. We recommend patients consider two major factors when deciding: body type and desired outcome.
The exact same implant type, size, and shape can look incredibly different on women of varying body types. As such, it’s essential to come into your consultation with an open mind. Dr. Sayed will work with you to ensure you understand what implant profile will best provide a balanced appearance suited to your figure.
Your aesthetic goals are also a critical factor to keep in mind as you decide on what implant’s right for you. Ask yourself whether you want a more natural look or a fuller, round breast appearance. Dr. Sayed has extensive experience providing a wide range of results and can point you towards the best solution based on what you want.
While these decisions can take time and seem complicated, you are not alone. Dr. Sayed and our expert team are here to support you and answer any questions you have throughout the decision-making process and beyond. We’ll listen carefully to your goals and make individualized recommendations. By working as a team, we’ll design a plan for the best possible outcomes.
