Attractive Breasts Tailored To You

The Spiegel Center in Newton, Massachusetts, has worked hard to become a trusted cosmetic plastic surgery practice for patients with Asian backgrounds. Our top surgical team possesses the specialized knowledge to create optimal results that don’t compromise a patient’s ethnic identity or mimic western ideals. While there is no singular Asian body, many of our Asian patients have small and light frames, and this demands a specific surgical approach.

Considerations for Asian Breast Augmentation

At The Spiegel Center, the expert team of surgeons understands that the implant type, size, position, and incision location for Asian patients require a culturally specific surgical plan. Though they may seem inconsequential, paying attention to these details is important for beautiful results.

Implant Type

Petite frames and small amounts of breast tissue are common among Asian patients. To make sure implants are undetectable, silicone breast implants are typically utilized since saline implants may show visible ripples when there isn’t enough breast tissue to camouflage them. 

Implant Size

Asian patients often to have a narrow rib cage and chest, which means the size of the implants must be chosen carefully for an enhanced look that still appears natural and balanced. Large implants are typically avoided.

Position of Implants

Breast size of Asian patients varies, but for those with scant breast tissue, implants are best placed beneath the chest muscles; this allows for a realistic-looking perkiness and lift to the breast. 

Incision Placement

Scarring can be a concern for Asian patients, as scars can often be raised or pigmented. For this reason, incisions are usually made in the armpit crease, around the areola, or in the breast fold crease to stay hidden.

What Happens During The Surgery?

A breast augmentation happens under general anesthesia and lasts 1-2 hours on average, though this varies from patient to patient. The first step is to make an incision in the most discreet location for the patient’s anatomy, and then lift the breast tissue to insert the implant. The exact placement of the implant is determined by the patient’s body type, and typically those with little breast tissue will have their implants placed under their pectoral muscles. 

Next, the implants are adjusted to the correct position on the patient’s chest. Then, the incision is closed with sutures and dressed. At The Spiegel Center, the Keller Funnel modality is often used, which is a low-friction method of placing the implant that avoids contact with the patient’s skin; this greatly reduces scarring and post-operative bruising and swelling.

What Is Recovery Like?

As with any surgery, there will be bruising and discomfort after the operation that will last for a few days. Patients typically receive prescription pain medication to help mitigate any pain. Patients are instructed to wear a customized bra to provide important support as the breasts heal. 

Tightness and swelling will last for a few weeks, and the breasts may sit higher on the chest than desired. With time the breast tissue will heal and relax, revealing a beautiful and natural look. Patients will have multiple follow-up visits to ensure that healing is going smoothly.
