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.


Mentor® Breast Implants

• Mentor® MemoryGel® Breast Implants Smooth Round Moderate Classic
• Mentor® MemoryGel® Breast Implants Smooth Round Moderate Plus Profile
• Mentor® MemoryGel® Breast Implants Smooth Round High Profile
• Mentor® MemoryGel® Breast Implants Smooth Round Ultra High Profile
• MemoryShape® is the shaped implant line and has similar profile options, plus options on implant heigh itself, since the implants are not symmetric

Sientra® Breast Implants

• Sientra® HSC Textured Round Low Projection
• Sientra® HSC Textured Round Moderate Plus Projection
• Sientra® HSC Textured Round High Projection
• Sientra® has similar implant options for its shaped implants

Natrelle® (made by Allergan)

• Natrelle® INSPIRA® Round (“Increased fullness“)
