What is a breast implant profile?

A breast implant profile is how far out from your breast wall your implant projects. Essentially, if you were to look at your breasts from a side profile, your breast implant profile refers to how far they come out.

There are a few different factors that affect the breast implant profile, from bra cup size, to the size of the base of the implant. An implant with a smaller base width will generally have a larger projection, whilst a larger base width will have a smaller projection.

Despite the fact that customers generally do not know about breast implant projection, it is important to consider it in conjunction with implant material, size and shape in order to make sure they are satisfied with the final look.

How much weight do fake breasts add?

Fake breasts do not actually add a lot of weight to your overall body mass. However, on average, a person tends to gain 3 to 5 pounds after breast implant surgery due to different reasons.

For example, many individuals experience fluid retention after this type of surgery. Moreover, rest and relaxation are essential post-operation so you can’t be as active as normal. This weight gain is temporary, and nothing to stress or worry about.


Tips to choose the best size implant for your body


Think about your body

Understanding your body shape, size and proportions is integral when choosing breast implant size. There are many options when it comes to breast implants and not everyone’s body is going to be able to handle the larger end of the breast implant scale.

Although your body measurement will help dictate the best kind of breast implants, the main area of interest is your chest. Everyone has a different shaped chest wall, which will help you determine what width of breast implant will fit best. If you want to get large implants, your other body proportions will let you know if you will actually be able to cope with them. The bigger size breast implant you get, the more support it will need from the rest of your body.



In addition to your actual body and the physical factors that you need to consider, you also need to think about external factors, such as the lifestyle you lead and whether or not it is compatible with breast implant surgery.

Think about the activities you enjoy doing. You might want to have breast implants for aesthetic reasons, but they might actually be uncomfortable if you lead a very active lifestyle. Those who enjoy high intensity exercise or run regularly, will want to avoid very large implants.


Consider your current breasts

Your current breasts are the reason that you are considering breast implant surgery so they play a huge role in choosing what you want. If you are unhappy with your current cup size, all you might need to do is consult with your plastic surgeon to determine the volume of breast implant that will help you fill out your desired cup size.

Alternatively, if your boobs are sagging, a consultation with your plastic surgeon might bring new options to the table, such as a breast lift. You also need to think about how much natural breast tissue you have. If you do not have enough, large implants will not be an option as there is a chance that the implant will protrude.



If you want a more natural look, you will likely be looking to get some small implants. On the other hand, if you are hoping to have a larger breast or want an over-the-top look, you will want to get larger implants. It really comes down to personal preference and what you want the end result to look like.


Considering breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is no small decision. After all, it is a surgery that is going to change your appearance and will require some recovery time. It is therefore integral that you think about it for some time and consult a certified plastic surgeon to understand all the risks involved.

A consultation with Doctor Moufarrège will allow you to get all the information you need about breast implant surgery and determine the implant size that is right for your body while  prioritising your health and wellbeing. A consultation will begin by discussing the type of breast implant the patient wants to get, the size of the implant, and the location of the incision.

On top of this, the doctor will complete a full assessment on your current health status in order to determine whether or not getting breast augmentation surgery is a safe decision for you. In order to do this, Dr Moufarrège will assess your general health, will discuss any underlying health conditions with the patient and will test the firmness of your skin.

In addition to the pre op and the actual operation itself, at Dr Moufarrège’s clinic, thorough aftercare and follow up advice is provided. Unsurprisingly, most patients feel some level of pain after the surgery due to the detachment of muscle. Although this usually only lasts 24 hours, our clinic will provide you with all you need to cope with any pain you may be experiencing.

Here at the clinic, we have thought about how to make the recovery process best for you, which is why we tend to perform our breast augmentation surgeries on a Thursday.  This allows patients to recover and get back to work on the following Monday. If, after your consultation, you do not think that breast augmentation is for you, we can talk you through all the other procedures and options that you might feel more comfortable with.
