What is a high-profile saline implant?

Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
One thing that many people do not realize is that not only do breasts sag downward over time, they also spread out. This produces a wide or "matronly looking" breast, especially when viewed from the side.

A high-profile saline implant means that the breast implants have more fullness and projection. They project further from the chest and look a little rounder, giving a less matronly appearance from the side. They are not as wide and give the woman a beautiful, tapered appearance. They are similar to a gorgeous Vera Wang wedding dress that is professionally cut and shaped on the side so as to accentuate the woman's breasts, not cover them up.
