When you come to our Philadelphia office for your breast augmentation consultation, Dr. David Bottger will discuss your aesthetic goals and assess your frame to help determine the best breast implant option for you. This will include considerations of breast implant size, shape and profile.
For women with slimmer builds, a popular choice is a high-profile breast implant, which provides a more pronounced upper-body profile. The final aesthetic results of your breast augmentation surgery will depend on factors including incision options, placement, and the type of implant you choose. High-profile breast implants are designed to project further from your chest than other implants; this is accomplished with a narrower diameter that focuses the volume to the middle and upper portion of your breasts. High-profile breast implants tend to be a good option for women who have slender chests with minimal breast tissue. They can also be a good solution for women with sagging breasts who have excess skin but lack volume.
Although high-profile breast implants have a distinct look, that look can be natural depending on factors including the size of the implant and your individual body type. Physical factors including your frame, skin elasticity and amount of existing breast tissue along with your aesthetic goals will ultimately determine the right breast implant choice for you.
