Your Breasts Are As Unique As You Are

Choosing the ideal placement and style of breast implants depends a great deal on your individual preferences. Many women choose an inframammary incision. However, as an Asian American woman, there are many reasons you might prefer to have an axillary incision.

This means that the breast implant is passed through a discreet incision placed within the fold of your armpit. Once the incision heals, your scar is hardly visible. For patients with a higher risk of problem scars, having a scar on the breast can be distracting or undesired. Shifting that scar to a more hidden location can be beneficial. Asian patients who are often smaller breasted and less droopy may also have less of a clearly defined fold under the breast to hide that scar. So using an incision in the armpit can be preferable for that reason as well.

Using that remote incision with a small implant makes it possible to offer a completely un-operated look to the breast, while boosting the volume to a desirable size. Dr. Hakim Said has more than 20 years of experience performing all kinds of breast augmentation in Seattle. He prides himself on ensuring you have a beautiful result with minimal scarring. With a complete range of breast implant sizes and styles, he is able to shape breasts that fit your anatomy perfectly, keeping your body proportions and personal preferences in mind.

What is Asian Breast Augmentation?

All breast implant procedures leave a scar. Dr. Said places incisions in inconspicuous areas so your scar is hidden where it cannot be seen. In doing so, he ensures your breast implant scar does not draw attention away from the final results of your surgery. For breast augmentation in asian patients, Dr. Said offers a technique to minimize breast scars in anyone prone to developing keloid scars.

Keloids are smooth, elevated scars that are common among people with tan, gold or brown skin types. By placing the incision in your armpit, it is possible to avoid raised scars beneath your breast fold, which can be unsightly. There are many reasons you may choose to have an Asian breast augmentation, including:

  • Keloid formation
  • Cultural and personal preferences
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • History of poor scarring

Benefits of Asian Breast Augmentation with Dr. Hakim Said

Dr. Hakim Said is a board-certified Seattle plastic surgeon who has performed thousands of cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgeries. He has a deep understanding of women’s desire to have a bust enhancement that looks natural, without any telltale signs of having “work done”.

Through Asian breast implant surgery, Dr. Said is able to provide an attractive and proportional result with carefully hidden scars that are not easily seen. During your consultation, Dr. Said will speak with you to discuss the best surgical method for your specific needs. One of Dr. Said’s preferred techniques in this setting is the transaxillary breast implant incision, which involves a small scar placed in your armpit. This allows you to enhance the size and shape of your breasts while eliminating the possibility of raised scars below your breast crease.

The Asian Breast Augmentation Procedure

Dr. Said will provide instructions to prepare you for surgery. On the day of surgery, Dr. Said will meet with you to go over any last-minute concerns.

Using a surgical marker, he will map out the incision placement on your skin. This helps to ensure your resulting scar is hidden from view once it heals. Your breast augmentation procedure may vary based upon your conversations with Dr. Said during the consultation process. In most cases, he will make a small incision in your armpit crease.

If you are having anatomical implants, also known as gummy bear implants, the incision may be a few centimeters longer. The difference is hardly perceptible. He will then pass your chosen breast implant through the incision and into the breast pocket that he will create during your surgery. Once your implants are in place, he will close the incision with dissolving sutures. You can expect to go home the same day to rest.

What to Expect During Breast Augmentation Recovery

After your surgery, you can rest well knowing that you are in good hands after you leave the surgical center. Dr. Said makes it his priority to follow up with you to ensure you are healing properly in the days and weeks after your procedure.

He is passionate about providing detailed information so you know exactly what to expect as you recover. You will receive simple, clear instructions that Dr. Said has designed to optimize your recovery after Asian breast implant surgery. You can expect to resume work and social activities in just a few days. Dr. Said advises against vigorous physical exertion for the first six to 8 weeks.

When to Expect Your Asian Breast Augmentation Results

In just a few weeks, most swelling will subside a great deal. As your breasts drop and fluff into their final position over the next 9 to 12 months, your results will look more natural over time.

Scar fading takes place in the first one to two years after surgery. Since your transaxillary scar is disguised within the fold of your armpit, others are unlikely to notice your scar once it heals. In most cases, it takes a trained eye to spot a well-placed transaxillary scar. Dr. Said will speak with you in detail about your personal recovery timeline. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
