If that’s the case, then read on, because this two-part article will cover 23 of the most commonly asked questions about breast augmentation surgery, so chances are any queries you may have will be answered here!
1. How Can I Find a Doctor I Trust?
This is easily one of the most important factors that will break or make your surgery and results. Google and crowd-sourcing is a good way to come up with a list of names, and then dig deeper on the surgeons you discover to ascertain if they are board-certified, professional, affordable, and are someone you trust. If you aren’t able to learn this from calling or browsing their website, scheduling an initial consultation may be helpful.
2. Are There Different Types of Breast Augmentation Surgeries?
Absolutely! Depending on what your goal is, you may choose one or more different surgeries. The options are breast lifts, breast reductions, or breast implants. For example, if you are looking for both lift and volume, a breast lift and implant surgery will be the route you’d likely take.
3. Are There Different Options for Breast Implants?
Yes! There are three types of volumizing options: saline implants, silicone implants, and fat transfer. Your doctor will be able to recommend the best fit for you.

4. What Type of Implant Should I Get?
It all depends on your situation and your goals. Silicone implants are more similar to the natural feel of the breast tissue, while saline implants create a more firm breast.
Round implants generally create a more perky look that offers more cleavage, while tear drop shapes fill the underside of the breast more, which is a more natural aesthetic.
5. Are there Different Implant Shapes?
Yes! The shapes most often used are tear drop, and round. Round implants generally create a more perky look that offers more cleavage, while tear drop shapes fill the underside of the breast more, which is a more natural aesthetic.
6. What is Breast Augmentation By Fat Transfer?
This is one of the less-commonly known ways of increasing breast size, and yet it is incredibly advantageous and provides a natural-looking outcome. It is done by liposuctioning unwanted fat from another area of the body, liquefying it, and inserting it in the breast. This method of breast enhancement comes with the benefit of slimming down in other areas at the same time!

8. Will I Have Scars From the Surgery?
You and your doctor will discuss where exactly incisions will be made to allow the implants to be placed, and will ensure that any potential scars are hidden as much as is possible.
9. What Side Effects Should I Expect?
The biggest threat from breast implants is the formation of scar tissue around the implant that hardens the skin tissue, which is extremely uncomfortable. Studies have revealed that less than 2% of breast augmentation patients experience this complication, and your doctor should warn you as well as discuss how this will be addressed should it occur.
10. How Much Do Breast Augmentations Cost?
1. Depending on which implants, if you are having additional work done, and a host of other factors, the cost for your breast augmentation will vary. There are anesthesia fees, hospital fees, and medication prices as well, and these all vary depending on where you live. The best way to get an accurate idea of how much your surgery will cost is to sit down with your doctor for an initial consultation and get a personalized quote.

11. How Long Does The Surgery Take?
The surgery itself generally takes anywhere from one to three hours.
12. What Can You Expect Recovery To Look Like?
Recovery is an individualized experience, but for most patients it takes a week or two for swelling to subside. The first few days are always the most difficult, and it may be helpful to expect to be on bedrest for this initial recovery period. Your doctor will admonish you on any restrictions or prohibitions to be aware of as you recuperate.
