Breast Augmentation

Before And After Photos

This is a young Asian patient who is seen here after a bilateral breast augmentation with silicone implants placed beneath the muscle through an incision at the bottom of the breasts. She has implants that are 300cc in size.

Although her breasts look spectacular, I have had some issues with the scarring with her incision. Her scars became thicker and darker in color. This is not uncommon with Asian patients. I injected steroids to make them flat and I have her using topical bleaching agents. Both are helping. Time will help as well.

She also wants me to consider making her breasts larger but I held her off because larger isn’t better and they simply won’t fit her petite anatomy. She has to love the beautiful breasts that she is so lucky to have.

Although I am not a big fan of the armpit approach to breast augmentation I see potential value in Asian patients as the scar will be in the underarm region.
