Breast Implant Profiles
Breast augmentation procedure is a popular cosmetic surgery among women seeking to enhance the appearance and shape of their breasts. Implant profile can go a long way in changing the existing shape of your breasts. Breast implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and heights. Profile or height is a crucial factor to consider for successful augmentation results.
The projection or profile of a breast implant determines how far the end result will project from your chest wall. The breast profile is determined by the base diameter and the amount it occupies on your chest wall. Same sized breast implants can have completely different forward projections if they have different base widths.
Narrower base widths offer more forward projection with heavier upper breast poles as compared to wider base widths. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides breast augmentation surgery to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Breast Implant Width is an Important Factor
Women that don’t want overly projecting breasts should choose implants with a wider base. The ideal implant profile only partially depends on the natural breast width. Still, it’s critical that you try matching the implant width with that of your natural breasts as much as possible. In fact, most surgeons recommend choosing a slightly smaller implant base size for the most natural looking results.
Too wide implants tend to extend beyond the breast outline and appear overly visible when viewed from the front. Such implants tend to distort the breast shape as well. Such implants increase the risk of uniboob or symmastia, where two breasts join to form one. The type of implant you choose should be based on the type of look you want to achieve.
Choose Lower Implant Profiles
You should choose lower breast implant profiles if you want:
- Side boobs or more fullness in the sides
- Fullness in the upper breast pole area
- Softer breasts
Choose Higher Implant Profiles
You should choose higher breast implant profiles if you want:
- To decrease moderate or mild sagging
- A more dramatic look
- Rounder breasts
- Pointier breasts
- Firmer breasts
Picking the Right Breast Implant for Augmentation Surgery
Choosing the right breast implant is the toughest part of the breast augmentation plastic surgery procedure, even if it is the most crucial. Breast implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and profiles. You should take your time to do extensive research for finding the ideal fit.
Breast implant profiles are an important consideration since the final appearance of your breasts depends on them. This is especially true if you are trying to achieve a natural look. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend a few options based on their knowledge of the human anatomy and breast shapes. This is why you should always consult with an established and reliable cosmetic surgeon.
You should also know that eventually you need to choose breast implants based on your aesthetic ambitions. Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan receives patients from Dallas, Texas, and nearby areas for breast augmentation.
