I have a low profile port. It is just a smaller port. I have a pretty flat stomach and my Dr. knew that if I lost more weight in that area that the regular size port would be more prominent.
I am so glad he decided to go with this one. I have not had any problems with fills, no pain or discomfort in the port area, nothing.
When I read posts about port pain and other port problems it makes me wonder if all of the problems are with the bigger port, because I have had absolutely no problems with mine.
I remember reading a few posts before about having to have the port repositioned after weight
loss because it started to protrude almost like it was going to pop out of the skin.
I would definitely suggest talking with your Dr. about it.
My Dr. actually suggested the smaller one for me, but he did say that it depends on how much belly fat a person has.
If you have a lot, then more than likely he will want to go with the bigger one.
