A low profile implant is wide and flat, while a high profile implant of the same size volume will be much narrower and protrude forward to create a more prominent breast. To help you decide whether high profile breast implants are appropriate for your body, during your pre-operative Breast Augmentation consultation at the Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute, Dr. Jugenburg will consider both your existing proporations and the look that you desire.

These days, almost all breast implants used for breast augmentation are round—circular—though once placed in the breast gravity helps the achieve an anatomic teardrop shape when you are standing or sitting, and flattens them when you lie down, just as it does with natural breast tissue. Normal, low-profile breast implants lie the flattest. For the same volume, a mid-profile implant will be narrower and taller. High profile implants will be even narrower and taller. For example, three implants, all cc in volume about half a measuring cup, but about enough to increase your bra size by a cup.
There are different projection types of implants, ranging from high profile breast implants to low profile breast implants. Projection is the forward projection for breast implants, which used to be standard for most implants. Recently though, size, projection and cleavage come hand in hand, and can all be formatted to find the right fit for the patient's body. The first profile type is the low profile breast implant.
