Breast implants by introducing the Ultra High Profile, which offers women the choice of going larger. Although women and surgeons select implants by a variety of pathways, generally, the implant must add enough volume to achieve the desired breast size. The available skin envelope of the breast must be sufficient to accommodate the device, and the base width of the implant must roughly match the base width of the native breast to produce the most aesthetic result.
Ultra-High profile Mentor implants offer a higher profile (projection from the chest wall) for the same base width of previously available implants. Selection of Ultra-High profile delivers a larger cup size and fills out excess breast skin better than lower profile prostheses, but disadvantages include the potential for more skin stretching and thinning over time, diminished nipple sensation, and greater implant edge visibility.
Dr. Laverson has used Ultra-High profile implants in several women and found initial patient satisfaction to be high.

MENTOR® MemoryGel® smooth round high profile
The MENTOR(R) MemoryGel(R) Xtra Breast Implant is the best option for achieving natural-looking curves with ultra-high profile breast implants. The MENTOR(R) MemoryGel(R) holds together uniformly and feels soft and natural. The round, ultra-high profile implants come in 18 different sizes (with subtle differences in volume, diameter, and projection) making them highly customizable for each individual patient. MENTOR(R) MemoryGel(R) implants are favored by patients and surgeons because the gel filling feels like natural breast tissue and the projections closely match the curve of natural breasts as well.

Breast implants come in all shapes and sizes. Choosing the implants best suited to your preferences and your body proportions is the key to getting results you feel great about. Along with the size, shape, incision site, and material (saline or silicone), the profile of your breast implants also plays a significant role in creating attractive and harmonious body contours.
If you have a narrow rib cage but want to achieve dramatic, sexy, and voluptuous curves, you may be a good candidate for ultra high profile breast implants.

What is the difference between low profile and high profile implants?
Implant profiles help you to achieve the best breast shape for your frame. The profile refers to the relationship between the implant’s base diameter and its forward projection. Implant profiles are generally categorized as low, moderate, high, or ultra-high. The higher the implant profile, the more projection the breast will have. Here’s a brief overview:
- Low profile breast implants are wider at the base and provide little projection. They work best for those who want full, shapely breasts that are not too large. The wider base makes them a good choice for women with a broad chest and shoulders.
- Moderate profile breast implants are slightly narrower, providing sexy cleavage and slightly more volume than low-profile implants. They are a good choice for women with wider chests who want more fullness but not too much projection.
- High profile breast implants have a narrower base and project forward for more dramatic shape and contour. The narrower base makes them a good choice for women with a narrow rib cage who desire breasts with a full round appearance.
- Ultra-high breast implants have the narrowest base and the most projection and fullness in the upper breast region. They are best for petite, narrow-chested women who want a larger cup size and dramatic curves.
Dr. Laverson will help you choose the implant profile best suited for your body and your preferences.
Can ultra-high profile implants look natural?
The short answer is yes, ultra-high profile breast implants can look natural. The longer answer is that they won’t look natural on everyone. The key to natural-looking results from breast augmentation is to choose breast implants that fit your frame. On a woman with a broad chest, implants with a narrow base will result in odd proportions and a large gap between the breasts. A general rule is to use implants with a base approximately the same diameter as your natural breasts. And whichever implant profile is chosen, the available skin envelope of the breast must be sufficient to accommodate it. It’s also crucial to work with an experienced plastic surgeon who understands female anatomy and has the skill to position the implants in exactly the right place for the sexiest, most natural appearance.
