Plastic surgery is rising in popularity among Asian American populations, and breast augmentation is in the top three most common procedures being chosen. There are some notable differences between Asian women and other ethnicities, such as Caucasians and African Americans—a tendency to be shorter and slimmer overall, to have a lower body mass index, and for the breasts to be small, with large nipples but small areolas—that come into play when considering breast surgery. Asian women also have a relatively high incidence of developing an overly enlarged, rounded nipple, a deformity that is especially common after giving birth, and which can be corrected during breast augmentation surgery. Further, Asian women are prone to developing hypertrophic (raised) scars, as well as darkly pigmented scars.
Dr. Usha Rajagopal discusses Asian Breast Augmentation:
If you are an Asian woman, all of these issues need to be taken into consideration when you are planning on undergoing breast surgery—your treatment must be adapted to your individualized needs. Because raised or dark scars are more likely to occur in Asian skin, and because the other factors mentioned above all change the way in which your doctor will approach your surgery, it is especially crucial that you select a physician with the knowledge to attend your unique situation. Dr. Rajagopal has extensive experience performing breast surgery on Asian patients; under her care, you can be secure in the knowledge that you are being treated skillfully and knowledgeably, and be confident in the best possible, natural looking, results.
