What are the advantages of high profile saline implants?

High profile, round implants have a smaller diameter but more projection compared to the standard implants. My experience is that when the implant diameter matches the natural base diameter of the breast, the result is more natural appearing and there is less rippling. With the availability of various implant profiles – high. Moderate, low - we are now able to match the diameter with a choice of different sizes.
