Breast Implant Profiles

Welcome to our brief online guide through various silicone and saline breast implant profiles / shapes.
There are five basic types of implant profiles:

Low Profile:
This one has lowest projection and widest base width from all types.
Moderate Profile:
Also called mid-profile. It has standard projection and wider base width.
Moderate Plus Profile:
It has higher projection and moderate base width when compared to moderate profile.
High Profile:
It has high projection and narrower base width when compared to previous types.

Ultra High Profile:
Highest projection and the smallest base width from all mentioned types.

So how to choose between them?
Profile is only one dimension of breast implant, another one is the size. For detailed description on different sizes.

For different body sizes are appropriate different combinations of size and profile, when considering how much woman wants to enlarge her bust.

For a woman with a very slim frame, a moderate or low profile breast implant that might result in a desired breast size, may be too wide and carry the implant too far to the underarm.

By using a high profile implant of smaller sizes, we can achieve similar result but with more balanced look. Your plastic surgeon should help you choose right combination of profile and size.

Breast Implant Sizes

Welcome to brief online guide through different breast implants sizes.

Implant size is usually measured in cubic centimeters and implants are produced in many various sizes. For example 175cc, 280cc, 371cc, 400cc …

Why are not breast implants distinguished by bra size?

The reason, why there are no “B”, “C” or “D” cup size implants, is simple. Total breast size will consist of breast tissue that woman had prior surgery plus the implant size. If you already had C cups before augmentation, total size will be different after using 280cc implant from the situation when woman had only A cups.

What size of breast implant do I need to go from 32A to 32C (or 32D etc)?

This can’t be easily calculated, since it depends on many various factors. Simply speaking, how implants and the natural tissue will stack together. But surgeon should be able to give you at least approximate estimate after seeing your current bust. Usually 250cc – 300cc are big enough to make D cups out of 32AA. But remember that this information is only for basic orientation. For one woman it will be 260cc, for other 280cc and so on.
