Breast Implant Shape

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


If you are considering breast enlargement using breast implants, it’s important to understand how the different types of implants can significantly impact your results. One factor to consider is the shape of your breast implants, which can be used to help you achieve not only the size, but the shape of breasts you desire.

Shaped and Round Breast Implants

Breast implants can be either round in shape or designed to reflect the shape of natural breasts. This seems like a good option, especially for women with little breast material who want to achieve naturally-shaped breasts, but the problem with shaped implants is that they can rotate in the breast pocket, turning a natural breast shape into a completely unnatural one.

Round breast implants, however, are can rotate in the breast and give the same appearance. They are shaped by gravity like your natural breast tissue, and over time acquire a more natural breast shape.

Breast Implant Profile

Round breast implants can also come in one of three different profiles, basically high, medium, and low. The profile reflects the ratio of width to height on the breast implant, with high profile breast implants significantly narrower than low profile breast implants.

Breast implant profile helps women of all proportions achieve the breast enlargement results they desire. If you have a narrow chest, but want to achieve more dramatic results, a high-profile breast implant can help.

During your consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, you can discuss your options for breast implant shape and other methods for achieving the results you desire.
