High Profile Saline Breast Implants

Posted On: July 19, 2013 Author: Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Augmentation, Breast topics

High profile saline implants are one of the most used implants in my practice.  The advantages of the high profile saline implants include increased fullness projection with decreased diameter.  This implant allows women to look fuller without looking matronly and heavy.  Patients do extraordinarily well with high profile saline implants overfilled because of reduced visible rippling, which can be seen in low profile saline and silicone gel implants.  The patient to the left shows high profile saline implants placed in the dual plane technique using the submuscular approach through a periareolar incision.  This patient is approximately five weeks postsurgical, shows excellent placement of her implants with symmetry of the inframammary fold, sternal region and nipple position.  High profile saline implants are very useful for women who desire increased fullness without a wider diameter implant which can look quite matronly.
