Breast Implant Placement Options

In general, Asian women are more petite than women of European, Latin, or African descent and have naturally smaller breasts, less tissue to hide an implant, tighter and more inelastic skin over the chest cage, and more narrow chest diameters, all of which make the surgical dissection more difficult.

Most thin Asian women prefer silicone gel implants (softer and more durable than saline implants) placed beneath the chest wall's pectoralis muscle to support them better, soften their external demarcation, and help the result appear more natural.

While considered safe, the longer a woman has silicone implants in place, the higher the incidence of complications. One in five patients require removal within ten years of implantation. All require monitoring with periodic MRI scans to check for signs of silent rupture or leakage (not necessary with saline implants). The United States FDA has noted that breast implants should not be considered lifetime devices.

Besides tearing of the outer shell, common complications with silicone implants include contracture around the implant, surface wrinkling, asymmetry, scarring, pain, and infection.
