Breast Implant Profiles: High or Low?


Making the decision to enhance your breasts is an exciting one but there are a number of other decisions that also need to be made before your procedure.

When it comes to choosing your breast implants, there are a number of different options to choose from. If you want to achieve a look that’s right for your body, you will need to carefully consider all of your options.

Choosing a Breast Implant Profile

Choosing a breast implant profile is one of the decisions that you will need to make during the augmentation process. Even though your surgeon will be able to take you through all of your options as well as the pros and cons of each during your consultation, it still helps to know as much as possible about your implant options so that you can be sure you’re making an informed decision.

Here is what you need to know about breast implant profiles.

Profiles Explained

When your surgeon refers to profile, he’s referring to how much your breast implant will project forward in your chest. If you were to lay flat, the height of your implant would be the profile.

The bigger your implant, the more the dimensions will change. An implant can either be wider but still have the same projection or it can have a greater projection but retain its width.

For example, a 300cc implant with a low profile will be wider and flatter but one with a high profile will be narrower and taller. There is also the option of a mid-profile, which is a good mix of the other two profiles.

A Brief Look at Profile Options

Let’s take a closer look at your profile options:


Low-profile implants are the flattest, while a mid-profile will be much narrower and slightly taller.

Low or mid-profiles are recommended for women with wide torsos because they help fill out the chest while still maintaining a smaller cleavage space. Women with larger torsos who opt for a high profile implant will usually end up with excess space between their breasts. Low profile breast implants will offer a more natural-looking result.


The best way to describe the shape of a high-profile implant is a half sphere, particularly if they’re extra high. Women looking to achieve a deeper cleavage and a very busty profile should opt for a high-profile implant. The only con associated with high-profile implants is that they can look slightly less natural but this is dependent on how elastic the surrounding breast tissue is.

It’s only natural to have an idea of exactly how you want your breasts to look but try not to overthink it. Your surgeon is there to help you make the best decision based on your aesthetic goals as well as your body shape. An experienced surgeon will also do everything possible to give you the most natural results.
