Breast Implant Profile Information

Breast Implant Profiles

Mentor MemoryGel™ breast implants and round saline breast implants come in High Profile, Moderate Plus Profile, and Moderate Profile – each offering a different level of projection (profile) for each woman’s preference and body type. Mentor was the first to offer the High Profile Breast Implant – offering greater projection, particularly designed for women with a narrower chest wall.

Moderate, Moderate Plus, and High Profile Breast Implants

Breast Implant Size

Choosing the right size implant is generally the most important decision a woman and her surgeon will make. Your plastic surgeon will evaluate your existing breast tissue to determine if you have enough tissue to accommodate the desired size of breast implant. Being realistic and following your doctor’s recommendations is very essential for the best result possible.

Smooth and Textured Breast Implant Surfaces

Breast implant shells come in either a smooth or textured surface. And here is the difference. As a natural reaction to any device placed in the body, scar tissue will form around the breast implant surface, creating a capsule. In some women, the capsule can tighten and squeeze the implant. This occurrence is called capsular contracture.

Textured breast implants were designed to reduce the chance of capsular contracture. Some information in the literature on small numbers of patients suggests that surface texturing reduces the chance of severe capsular contracture, but clinical information from studies of a large number of women with Mentor implants shows no difference in the likelihood of developing capsular contracture with textured implants compared to smooth-surfaced implants.
