What exactly are high profile breast implants?
Breast Implant Profile Types - High Medium or Low?
Implants come in basically two shapes, round and anatomical. The anatomical implants are also known as teardrop implants. Currently, both saline implants as well as silicone gel implants are available in round and anatomical shapes. When choosing breast implants, shape is an important consideration.
There are different projection types of implants, ranging from high profile breast implants to low profile breast implants. Projection is the forward projection for breast implants, which used to be standard for most implants. Recently though, size, projection and cleavage come hand in hand, and can all be formatted to find the right fit for the patient's body. The first profile type is the low profile breast implant. These are the implants with the smallest forward projection.
