Form stable breast implants are newly available in the United States. Their shape is more like the natural breast, with greater fullness in the lower portions and less fullness in the upper portions, and this is an advantage for some breast shapes.
Patients considering breast augmentation surgery should be aware of the effect of different breast implant profiles. High profile implants have greater forward projection and will round out the upper portions of the breast while medium and low profile breast implants have different effects. I consult patients wanting to learn more about breast implant choices in my Chicago office.
