Breast augmentation asian woman
With many Asian patients, I use form stable shaped breast implants and I lower the inframammary fold so that there is more great tissue below the nipple areola complex than above. each patient is unique and not all patients require this approach, but you should seek a plastic surgeon with experience with this approach.
Scarring after breast augmentation and Asian female
The you have many questions that really require an in person consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon for proper answers.
However many answers may be found by reading the following link:
To get you started:
- There is no way to guarantee how you are going to scar. Quality of your scars is dependent upon several factors although most patients (in my experience) tend to heal very nicely regardless of their ethnicity
- I use a partial sub muscular approach and find that works for a majority of my patients
- Augmentation before or after having kids is really a personal decision and so there is no right/wrong answer here
- I work with a very active client base and prefer a sub muscular approach since many of these women have low body fat and so a sub glandular approach may lead to a less natural appearing result
- You should be able to sleep on your stomach within a few weeks after surgery
- Sleeping on your stomach should not increase the risk for rupture
- Stretch marks can occur following BA although why they occur is really not known
I hope these answers help and wish you the best of luck!

Scarring and Recovery for Asian Breast Augmentation
Congratulations on your decision to get breast implants. While it is true that any patient that has some color in their skin like Asian skin, the risk of developing bad scars is very low, especially if you are not prone to heavy scars already. The best way to know that is to look at your hand or knees where we often see cuts. If yours have healed in well, you are not likely to have bad scarring. With all scars, a scar cream or application that has silicone in it will keep the scar soft and should help you get a great result.
For recovery, if you have a rapid recovery protocol, you should not have any difficulty getting back to most routine activities within a day or so. I have added a link and a video about this for you.
I hope that helps.
Asian breast augmentation
You can do vigorous physical activity about 6 weeks after breast augmentation, although you may want to wait a little longer for bungee jumping. Implants are very durable and sleeping on your front will not increase the risk of rupture. Stretchmark development depends on how prone you are to getting them. If you develop them easily, then breast augmentation may cause them as well.
You should ask your surgeon for their advice, as they may have different information and guidelines.
