Breast Augmentation Scarring: Ethnic Considerations

Latin women are probably more prone to develop a scar with dark pigmentation than a Caucasian woman, but usually their breast augmentation scars extremely are hard to detect. Unlike African-American and Asian women, Latin women are more likely to be successfully treated with a laser if the scar has problems, and it is very unlikely that they will develop a keloid scar.

The trend among many top breast augmentation surgeons is increasingly to put the incision under the breast. That hides the scar from most angles of view. On the other hand, armpit scars can be viewed in sleeveless clothing and the nipple scar is visible when looking looking at the breast.

Women have traveled to Dr. Teitelbaum to do their breast augmentation from Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and throughout South America. Los Angeles is indeed a melting pot and Dr. Teitelbaum is experienced at performing breast augmentation in his Los Angeles office, for patients of a wide variety of ethnicities.
