About High Profile Breast Implants

These implants are filled with silicone gel material or saline solution. It is your choice, and usually people make a decision based on how each one feels in their hands. The good news is the profile can be offer the same look with either type. With a high profile breast implant, your breast will be tall when you lay down. If you think about how natural breasts fall to the sides or simply lay flat on the chest when you lie down, the high profile implant allows the breast to stand higher.

About Standard Profile Implants

Standard profile implants look more like natural breasts. When lying down, the breasts will fall to the sides slightly (depending upon the cup size). The difference is that since your cup sizewill be bigger than you are now you’ll notice more height to them. Their height and width are much more like natural breasts with this type of implant.

How to Make the Decision

It can be difficult to make a decision because it’s based on personal preference. Some women don’t like when their breasts fall to the sides or look flat when they are on their back, while others don’t care.

One thing you can do to help you decide is lay on your bed holding a mirror. If you like the way your breasts fall now, you probably want to get a standard profile. However, if you wish they would be more erect, choose the high profile ones.
