Other Frequently Asked Questions

Is Breast Augmentation the Same as a “Breast Lift?”

These are not the same thing. A breast lift reshapes and sculpts the nipples and breast mound, whereas a breast augmentation uses implants to change the size of the breast. If you would like your breasts to have a perkier, more youthful appearance, but don’t necessarily want them to look bigger, breast lift surgery can be performed without implants.

Which procedure you choose depends on your goals. Some patients choose to undergo a breast lift, some choose a breast augmentation, and some get both. A good first step would be to discuss what you want with a licensed surgeon who can help you decide which cosmetic procedure(s) would be best for you.


As the name implies, these implants are filled with saline, a sterile saltwater solution. This kind of implant is filled after it is inserted into the body, allowing a minor adjustment in size during your surgery to achieve the aesthetic outcome you want with these saline implants. In the rare event of rupture and deflation, the saline can be easily absorbed by the body unlike gel implants.
That being said, these implants may not be the best option for women with naturally smaller breasts, thin skin or little breast fat. This is because it could increase the risk of visible rippling below the surface of your breast tissue or skin.


More closely matching the look and feel of natural breast tissue than saline implants, silicone implants are much less prone to visible rippling below the skin. This type of implant is more pliable because the cohesive silicone gel feels much like a soft “gummy bear”. Ask our plastic surgery specialist about how to get gummy bear implants, also known as gumdrop implants. Other types of breast implants take fat deposits from other parts of your body to initiate a fat transfer to your breasts.

As with any surgery, some scarring is inevitable. But with the right techniques most scar tissue can be hidden, and with the right aftercare, their presence can be reduced and they will fade over time.

For most women, the answer is “yes”–you will be able to breastfeed just fine if you’ve undergone breast augmentation surgery.

That said, you should share with your surgeon if you plan, or are even just considering, breastfeeding in the future, as this might influence how they perform the procedure. Some surgeries can affect (or even sever) the nerves and ducts within the breast, thus changing how the breasts are stimulated during nursing (and thus, milk supply). That said, if your incisions are under the fold of the breast or through your armpit, you should have no problems breastfeeding.

Our experience with dozens of patients confirms that partial sensation loss can happen—but it only occurs in about 5% of breast augmentation surgeries. For most people, nipple sensation gradually returns to normal in about 3-6 months following the surgery. (On the other hand, long lasting breast pain is not a common side effect and should be brought to a doctor’s attention immediately.)

If you’re doing research on breast augmentation, you have probably run across the term “Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL).” This is not a kind of breast cancer, but rather a rare immune system cancer. It appears that having textured implants is a risk factor for this disease. That said, the American Society of Plastic Surgeonsputs the lifetime risk of BIA-ALCL somewhere between 1 in 2,207 cases and 1 in 86,029 cases. 

In other words, the risk of BIA-ALCL is small, but it is not zero. You should discuss the risk with your doctor before scheduling surgery. And if you suspect you are showing symptoms of BIA-ALCL, contact your physician immediately.

The actual price of a breast augmentation procedure depends on a number of factors, including the type of implants used, time spent in the OR, and what kinds of anesthetics are used. Price also varies depending on which state you live in (though the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates an average cost of $4,294 in the U.S.). Costs will also be naturally higher when the procedure is done by an experienced physician and team.

Most women who undergo breast augmentation say that the procedure is worth it. Recent advances in this surgery have made it both safer and more affordable. While everyone’s situation is different, it is worth asking: How much do you value your own confidence? What would you pay to love the way your body looks?

Don’t Settle for an Alternatives

Most products or procedures that offer bigger, fuller breasts tend to over-promise and underdeliver. The effects are either temporary, barely noticeable, or flat-out don’t work. This might be why none to date have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Your best bet for long-lasting larger breasts with a natural look and feel is surgical breast augmentation.

The decision to undergo breast augmentation is a very personal one. Like any surgery, it should be approached thoughtfully and with an understanding of the whole procedure. This decision should not be based solely on advertising.
