Why Do Breast Implants Have Different Profiles?

Just like implant placement, you’ve heard me talk about implant profiles before too. While I believe this is a decision your plastic surgeon should make after seeing your build and Boobie Guide, I still recommend that you understand what plastic surgeons mean when they start talking about profiles and projection.

In the photo below, both breast implants are filled to exactly the same volume... let's say 450cc's for the sake of argument.

As you can see, the low profile implant filled with 450cc’s does not have the height / projection as an ultra-high profile implant with 450cc’s. That's because the diameter of the low profile implant is so much larger with the ultra-high profile implant.

How Will My Plastic Surgeon Choose?

There’s more to fitting the right implant than meets the eye. Your plastic surgeon will take into consideration your Boobie Guide goals as well as what you’re currently working with.

The frame of your chest, location of your nipples, implant placement and desired projection are all factors into finding the correct implant profile.

Whether you’re looking for a more natural look like Kelly Deinstadt...

...or a more augmented look like Chloe Sims

...your profile of implant will play a big role in the look you're hoping for. To give you an idea of what I mean by different anatomy types, take a look at the difference in their stature. While they have similar weight, Kelly has a broader chest wall than Chloe.

My Personal Preference

So my Boobie Guide, Miss Tina Louise, has a relatively augmented look and I believe she has a similar frame to mine. (Did I mention I got to interview her?!)

Currently I have moderate profile breast implants, so I think there’s a good possibility that myplastic surgeon, Dr. Jeremy Pyle, will recommend a higher projection for my revision—but we’ll just have to wait and see!
