Breast implant profiles (projection)

Learn your accurate breast implant profiles

For some women, the breast augmentation sizing is fine for them, but to others the outcome comes with unsightly after surgery results.  In the past, the size of breast implant was based in the volume, and that is by cubic centimeters (cc´s) that filled in the implant casing.    Using the standard sizing could result some problems:

  1. The implants are widely proportioned to the body   but does not project forward enough
  2. The implants may sometimes too limited or too broad
  3. They may narrow or too  wide
  4. The cleavage may results to be not natural looking

Today, if a patient would undergo breast implant, the factors that would be considered are not only about the shape and size but also the profile or the projection of the implant.    Projection which means the width and the depth of the implant that will have an excellent surgery result.

Below are the common types of the breast implant profiles / projections:

  1. The moderate projection/profile.  This type is normal sized implants that are relatively proportion in width and the forward projection.  This type is the closest to the original and standard-typed.
  2. The moderate Plus projection/profile.    This type is perfect for women with small body frame or to females who wants to projects more on bust lines, rather than plain breast roundness.  This implant offers a minor tapered widened and forward projection, which will create depth than width.
  3. High profile breast implant.    This type promotes more on the forward projection compromising a narrow based in diameter.  This is for small or thin females who want natural looking appearance in forward projection.   This type is great for women with minimal breast tissue and with narrow chest measurement.
  4. Low profile breast implant.  This type is great for a large and fuller framed female.  Women with wide frame benefit the large based diameter of this type.   It creates the shape on her breasts that are proportion to her body shape.
