Dr Dass describes High Profile Breast Implants
Breast augmentation is a common procedure, and several different types and styles of implants are available for breast augmentation to provide a customized result. In fact, each implant manufacturer has between 100-200 different implants to choose from, so this can be a daunting task. Some patients come in asking for high profile silicone implants because that’s what their girlfriend has, but implant profile selection is based on a number of factors. This article will focus on implant profile.

High Profile Breast Implants - High Profile Breast Implants

Breast implants come in several different profiles. These include the low profile, moderate profile, and high profile implants. In general, a low profile breast implant has a larger diameter and appears flatter or more disk-like. Whereas, a high profile breast implant has a smaller diameter but gives more projection, and looks more round. This is an extremely confusing issue for patients. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about choosing the implant profile. The decision tree is quite complex and is based on a number of different factors. Your plastic surgeon will select the breast implant profile based on measurements of your chest and breast, preoperative breast shape, desired breast shape, and desired breast size. This is why your plastic surgeon will determine what profile is best suited for your body.

The key thing that you will get to chose is the size of the breast implant. When you come in for your breast augmentation, you will try on a few different implant sizes in a sports bra until you find the size that is right for you. This will give you an idea of what your breasts will look like after augmentation. Measurements will be taken of your chest and breast to make sure that this size is appropriate for your body, and your plastic surgeon will help guide your decision. In general, petite women who desire relatively large breast implants will likely have a better result with high profile implants.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
