Breast augmentation has become increasingly more popular among Asians. Many Asians possess small breasts. This poses an obstacle in finding clothes that drape the chest aesthetically. As the standard of beauty shifts, the demand for breast augmentation increases.

The amount of enhancement should be modest, to match the generally narrower body frame. Smaller implants often give a better, more natural-looking result. While silicone implants may be used in select cases, saline implants are the only FDA approved breast implant. These types of implants are safe. The implant is often inserted through an incision at the armpit area to minimize visible scarring.
