The days of terrible results from direct liquid silicone injections and "Amazing Gel" breast augmentation surgery in Asia are long over.
Today, Asian cosmetic breast surgery is similar to that in the non-Asian with the important exceptions of incision site and implant size. As in the Occidental patient, some results look natural, while others look less so if not blatantly obvious.
One Asian innovation of note is self-decision breast augmentation surgery, which allows the patient to select the size of the implant during the actual operation.
Breast lift and breast reduction are performed in Asian patients without substantial modifications of standard techniques.
Combined with breast augmentation, these operations comprise nearly one-third of all cosmetic plastic surgery performed on patients of Asian descent. Together, they constitute the most popular type of cosmetic surgery undertaken in every single country within East and Southeast Asia.
