Why Choose Asian Breast Augmentation Surgery?

There are many reasons why you may choose to undergo a breast augmentation procedure. If you desire breasts which are more in proportion with your frame, this solution may be the right fit for your needs. In other cases, you may find yourself seeking a sense self-confidence and improved self-image but may not be sure how to get started. Surgical procedures like breast implants can help you obtain the aesthetics you’re envisioning.

It doesn’t matter what your personal motivation is for selecting this type of plastic surgery, Dr Choy will work with you to achieve the results you want. It would be best to book a consultation to discuss your requirements for Asian breast augmentation surgery.

What is Asian Breast Augmentation Surgery?

As an Asian patient, the process  for breast augmentation surgery differs from that used for Western women. However, outcomes are very similar to those of a standard augmentation procedure. There are some key differences worth knowing, and these differences are born from the increase in considerations that breast augmentation carries for Asian patients.

The first difference is that standard breast implants may not be suitable for you if you’re from South East Asian and East Asian communities. In many cases, Asian patients have smaller frames, and therefore require smaller implants to maintain a natural proportion. Additionally, you may be looking for teardrop implants for a highly natural-looking result. As this is significantly unique to the Asian community, this aesthetic appeal is perfect if you’re looking for an option that remains supportive of your smaller frame. During your consultation, these are aspects that Dr Choy and his team will take into careful consideration.

The second difference relates to surgical scars involved with the procedure. The skin around your breast area – as an Asian women – means it’s more likely to experience keloid scarring. If you feel a little dissuaded by the procedure because of this, there are still options available to you through our highly experienced clinic. Dr Choy and his team utilise different methods to minimise visible scarring and achieve an almost flawless aesthetic appearance, following implant surgery. This means you can enjoy seamless results that reduce the risk of scarring to your skin.

Based in Sydney, Dr Choy and the team can discuss this with you at your consultation. We’ll navigate you through the process, so you can access the right information to help you  understand the procedure better. Our aim is to allow you to walk away from the clinic with a solid understanding of what you can expect for your Asian breast augmentation, before and after.

The second implication relates to surgical scars. The skin around the breast area of an Asian woman is more susceptible to keloid scarring than the skin of other ethnicities. This may dissuade some Asian patients from undergoing the surgery. However, Dr Choy and his team utilise different methods to minimise visible scarring and achieve an almost flawless aesthetic appearance, following implant surgery.

Dr Choy and the team can discuss this with you at your consultation. More information will help you to understand the procedure better and the results you can expect.

Your Asian Breast Augmentation Surgery Procedure

Dr Ellis Choy and his team have extensive experience in performing breast augmentation procedures on Asian patients and are committed to achieving the right outcomes for clients. This means applying an approach to your journey that works with you to decide on the best method and option for your needs. At all stages, we will provide you with the most suitable knowledge and advice, allowing you to understand the procedure in its entirety.

Types of Incisions Involved with Asian Breast Implants

During the initial consultation, Dr Choy will guide you through understanding the types of incisions involved, and what you can expect for Asian breast augmentation, both before and after. As Asian women typically carry a greater risk of pigmented scarring, an experienced surgeon who understands the importance of strategy incision placement is crucial.

To minimise the potential for visible scarring, Dr Choy adopts the inframammary fold incision technique – a widely popular method for surgeons in the field. This approach includes the incision being made along the skin crease, allowing for direct access to the breast pocket. Other surgeons often choose to place the incision under the armpit. This method can cause issues with lymph in the long-term, and as your health is the top priority at our clinic, we avoid placing the incision in that area.

Strategic placement of incisions can minimise visible scarring when paid careful attention to by the surgeon. Having an experienced nature in Asian breast augmentation, Dr Choy will assess the most appropriate approach to deliver a seamless result, all aimed at meeting your aesthetic goals.

Silicone or Saline Asian Breast Implants?

While Dr Choy will discuss the most suitable options for you as a patient, it can be worth understanding the different types of implant inserts available in modern procedures.

Silicone inserts are filled with a high-quality silicone gel, which allows the result to look and feel natural. Some patients prefer the ‘flesh-like’ feel that these implants give. However, they often require a longer incision to provide an effective route for the surgeon.

On the other hand, saline breast implants are comprised of IV fluids. The surgeon creates a small incision to insert the implant – one that is often smaller than that required for silicone types. It’s important to note that some women feel that saline inserts do not always give as natural a look as other types.

Understanding Breast Implants and Shapes

As Asian women typically have smaller builds than Western women, surgeons must bear in mind working with a more petite figure. If you’re an Asian patient, it’s likely that you will visit our clinic with much smaller cup sizes than Western women, who commonly have natural breast sizes of C to D. In some cases, you may be looking for teardrop implants as well, in order to achieve a certain look and feel. Dr Choy can help you understand the right look for your body and goals.

Additionally, because of this natural difference, Dr Choy pays careful attention to the needs of Asian patients who are looking to achieve a feminine, yet subtle, approach to breast augmentation. Aiming to achieve proportions that look and feel aligned with the natural figure of Asian women, procedures are conducted with the utmost attention to detail.

Asian Breast Augmentation Aftercare and Recovery

Following the Asian breast augmentation procedure, Dr Choy and his team will give you a thorough outpatient briefing. This briefing will provide you with information on what you can expect in the coming days and weeks, including any recommended aftercare measures.

Regarding the recovery process; at first, you may notice an unnatural firmness to your breasts. This will subside over time as the recovery begins and the swelling reduces. Patients are advised to avoid placing stress or strain on the chest area in the days following your procedure. This means wearing a surgical support bra and avoiding strenuous exercise and other such activities until Dr Choy has properly assessed the results.
