Breast Implant Profile

Breast Implant profile has to do with the amount of projection outward that the breast implant has. Each major breast implant manufacturer offers several profile types for both their round and their implants. Dr. Zuckerman will decide with you which profile type is optimal depending on your amount of starting breast issue and your ultimate goals for increased size. Note: bra size is not standardized, so it is difficult to tell patients what size implant in cc's will translate to a "full C", but the higher the profile implant used, the more fullness and augmentation will be present in the ultimate result for a given size of implant. Below are the common profiles offered by each breast implant manufacturer. Many of Dr. Zuckerman's patients select the Mentor® Moderate Plus Profile, but he also has patients select the "Ultra High Profile" as well.
