Breast augmentation is a very personal plastic surgery procedure with one ultimate goal - to make our patients feel more beautiful. As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so each breast augmentation will be unique, as it is tailored to the specific needs and desires of each of our patients. Breast implants can add volume and shape to a woman’s bust line, but just how much volume is added, or what shape a woman is looking for will vary by each procedure. While there are many characteristics of a breast implant that may affect the ultimate result of surgery, here we will focus on breast implant profiles and what our Fairfield patients should know prior to undergoing breast augmentation.
Patients who have done any research on breast augmentation likely have considered what size of implant they’d like and whether they think silicone or saline implants are right for them, but many women come into a breast augmentation consultation with little to no knowledge about breast implant profiles. A breast implant profile describes the way in which the volume of a breast implant is distributed. This greatly affects the shape and projection of the breast implant, and can make it appear flatter and wider in shape or give it more of a round or teardrop shape. Below are some specific breast implant profiles that may be considered for a breast augmentation procedure:
Many patients want to know which of these implant profiles is the “best.” That question is difficult to answer because it will be different for each patient. Choosing a breast implant profile is not just about how you want your breasts to look after surgery. It is important to consider the natural shape of the breasts, too. Even if a patient wants high projection, a high plus profile implant will not be ideal if the patient has a very wide breast base. Dr. Passaretti can let you know which breast implant profiles will work with your body shape and can then guide you through the process of choosing an implant that will give you the look you desire.
