The photos of breast augmentation patients on the internet are mostly of Caucasian women. But all of those considering a breast augmentation want to see photos of other patients who look like themselves, and that is why Dr. Teitelbaum has set up this special section.
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.
Dr. Teitelbaum was a member of the national plastic surgery task force that developed the Covid-19 protocols for plastic surgery offices. He is therefore well-versed in all of the recommendations and his office meets or exceeds all of them. By now you are familiar with all the obvious measures such as reminding patients and staff not to come to the office if they have any symptoms, taking temperatures, maintaining social distancing, having everyone wear masks, placing hand sanitizers everywhere, reducing the number of patients in the office at one time, testing all surgical patients, etc. One unique feature is that Dr. Teitelbaum’s operating room has "laminar flow" – a very advanced system that directs the flow of air from a large diffuser on the ceiling to exhausts near the floor, ensuring that the fresh air flows in one direction. This not only reduces the chance of COVID infections for the patients and staff, but it also reduces the risk of surgical infections.
