Breast Augmentation FAQs

You've done all your homework on breast augmentation surgery, found a board-certified surgeon and chosen a date, but you still have some lingering questions.

Well, you have come to the right place! Our Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) section is where you want to be. Here is where you will find answers to all of your questions, including ones that may have slipped your mind during your consultation as well as those that you may have been too embarrassed to ask!

For your FAQs about how to prepare for your breast augmentation with implants, visit our preparation FAQ. Got questions about your implant options, including some newer options like the Ideal Implant? Our FAQ on implant options is where you want to be now. We also answer any and all questions you may have on breast augmentation incisions in our incision FAQ, as well as all your questions on "scarless" transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA) in a special TUBA FAQ. Any remaining questions on whether you should go over or under (the muscle) will likely be answered in implant placement options FAQ. If you have questions or concerns about how and where your surgery will be performed or what type of anesthesia will be used, visit our breast implant surgery FAQs.

There's also a special section that houses all the breast augmentation recovery and complications FAQs. On the off chance that you still have questions, our bet is that it they will be answered in our catchall miscellaneous FAQ which includes answers to such peculiar questions as whether or not breast implants glow in the dark.

Good luck! (And yes, breast implants do glow in the dark. If you stick flashlights underneath or next to your breasts, they will cast a glow!)
