If you want to enhance your small, asymmetric, or misshaped breasts, then you may want to consider breast augmentation. Before you undergo this procedure, there are certain things that you need to understand. One of the variables that can be changed with this procedure is the projection of the breasts. There are cases when breast implants have high projection. In this situation, the breasts have a very small width compared to the forward or anterior dimensions. This determines how much the implant sticks out.
Implant projection is important because even though implants are round for the most part, the look of your breast will vary depending on the profile or projection of the implant. If you will observe an implant with high projection, you will notice that the width tends to be smaller than other implant profiles. The side projection or dimension in an anterior direction compensates the loss in width.
Implants with high projection provide a breast that looks full on the top. However, this fullness can be varied by essentially modifying the projection of the implant. If you are considering a high-profile implant, you have to remember that it will give you a more unnatural look. There is no right or wrong when it comes to the projection of the implant. It still depends on you on what look do you want for your breasts. Remember, a high profile implant that provides less projection is not for every patient, particularly those who have a very wide chest dimension and breast base.
It is important for you to discuss with your plastic surgeon what type of look you are looking for after breast augmentation. If you are looking for a very natural full breast, then a high-profile implant is the solution for you. Not only that, a plastic surgeon will be assessing your skin tone as well. If your skin tone is not very tight, a high-profile implant is recommended.
