Most patients do not realize that though there are two different types of implants (saline & silicone) that there are also different “profiles”. Based on each individuals personal breast measurements determine which implant will give the patient the best result. The implants have different widths and projections. For example, if there is a very narrow patient, a high profile would be appropriate because a mid or low profile implant may be too wide and hit her arms and look like its further out than her body.
