Take a look below at a few of the fundamental differences between moderate plus and high profile breast implants.

Moderate Plus vs. High Profile Breast Implants

Scottsdale women often come to our offices prepared with a general idea of how large they want their breast implants to be. But few women realize that there is another component they need to think about: projection. When it comes to projection, the choice is usually determined solely by personal preference regarding how you want your breasts to look.

Plastic surgeons use the word projection to refer to how far the implant projects from the chest wall. Depending on what your goals are for your breast augmentation, you can choose between a range of breast implants with more or less projection. Two of those choices are Moderate Plus and High Profile.

Moderate Plus Breast Implants

Scottsdale patients that want their breasts to have more fullness towards the bottom and sides of the breast with less projection outwards will go with a moderate plus implant. These implants are wider and flatter, so patients need to have enough room in the breast pocket.

High Profile Breast Implants

On the other side of the spectrum are high profile breast implants. As their name suggests, these implants protrude out more from the chest. One of the advantages for more slender women with high profile implants is that they can get more fullness pushing outward instead of on the sides of their breasts. Some women absolutely love the look these types of implants deliver, and Dr. Meger will discuss all of this in great detail with you during your preliminary consultation.

When it comes to breast implants, Scottsdale women have a lot of very important and complex decisions to make. While doing your own research is a great idea, when it comes down to making an informed decision, make sure that you call Dr. Meger. We can answer all of your questions in much greater detail when Dr. Meger performs an examination and talks with you in person. Call us today!
