Hello. I'm having my surgery in 15 days and although I trust my surgeon's advice I still feel a bit scared about the projection. I do want a very natural look and I've read some doctors' opinions about high profile implants being less natural. I spoke to my surgeon about this but he has reassured that these implants will look natural and perfect for my frame. My height: 5,6 Weight: 8 st and 2 lb What do you think? Thank you so much!

Thank you for the question. Although I cannot provide you with specific advice regarding breast implant size/profile, I can tell you that profile breast implants do not necessarily created a "less natural" outcome;  for some patients high profile implants work very well and create a "natural" outcome nicely.

Ultimately, careful communication of your goals (in my practice I prefer the use of goal pictures, direct examination/communication in front of a full-length mirror, and computer imaging) will be critical.
Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery ( regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you are looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.
2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals.
In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or  "look nice" etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful.
Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on him who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate. Again, the use of computer imaging has been very helpful during the communication process, in our practice.
3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your plastic surgeon to use his/her years of experience/judgment to choose the breast implant size/profile that will best meet your goals. Again, in my practice, this decision is usually made during surgery, after the use of temporary intraoperative sizers.
I hope this (and the attached link, dedicated to breast augmentation surgery concerns) helps. Best wishes.
