Peri-Areolar or Inframmary Incision for African American Patients?

I spoke to my PS about this, and he said he recommends the periareolar for black patients. I'm not comfortable with that, so he said he coulld do the inframmary incision. Since he's using saline, he would make a really small incision and would use a new technique "Keller Funnel", so the incision wouldn't be large at all.

What do you normally recommend for AA patient? Anyone familiar with the Keller Funnel? How soon after surgery could I use whitening cream to lighten the scar?
