Latina

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, but usually their breast augmentation scars extremely 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 plastic 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 Domincan Republic, and throughout South America.  Los Angeles is indeed a melting pot and Dr. Teitelbaum is experienced at performing breast augmentation in patients of a wide variety of ethnicities.
