Breast Implants

About Breast Implant Profiles: Low, Moderate, And HighWomen desiring fuller, voluptuous looking breasts can benefit from having a breast augmentation surgery. This procedure is highly customizable to deliver individual results. You can choose the right shape, size and type of your breast implants. You can also choose the degree of forward projection you want by choosing among the various different breast implant profile types. Breast implants, in the past, were available in a predetermined standard projection based on the implant size. However, technological advances made in the breast augmentation field have now allowed surgeons to offer a wide array of implant profiles to their patients. You can now choose between having dramatic results, subtle changes, fuller, rounder breasts, and more cleavage. Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides breast augmentation surgery to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
