Breast Implants KnoxvilleOur breast augmentation patients often tell us that as they start to do their research they often uncover more questions than answers. While that is obviously frustrating to our potential patients, it is great news for us! We love when our patients come to their consultations prepared with a bunch of questions. One of the most common questions that we get is about the different shapes of breast implants. While many women focus on the size or volume of their implants, fewer look into which shape of implant they want. In this blog post, we’ll look at the different implant shapes and we’ll pay special attention to high profile breast implants. Knoxville women that are ready to get the breasts of their dreams and finally fill out all those cute clothes should give us a call today at (865) 973-9500.

Profile Options for Breast Implants

Knoxville women have a few different options when it comes to the “projection” of their breast implants. The projection is how far the breast implant will “stick out” from the front of the chest. Different profiles provide patients with different “looks.” Some projections work great for petite women with narrow chests while others are better for larger women who have a wider chest.

  • Low profile – This implant profile is the flattest. With this type of implant, the “base” of the implant is wider.
  • Moderate profile – This profile shape used to be the only option for women. It adds some moderate volume and fullness to the breasts without too much projection.
  • Moderate plus profile – For women that want to get a little more voluptuous cleavage without going to the high profile implant this is a great option.
  • High profile – With high profile breast implants, Knoxville patients get the most projection away from the chest wall. This is ideal for women that have narrow chests but still want to get some outward curves from their breasts implants.
  • Ultra High profile – These implants are the highest projection, and are mostly used for breast reconstruction after cancer.

Knoxville women that work with Dr. Hall will have plenty of time to talk with him about his recommendations for which implant profile is best for them. Also, during your consultation with Dr. Hall, you’ll get to “try on” each implant size and shape with an implant sizing bra. This will give you an idea of how your implants will look on you.
