Breast Augmentation FAQs

How long do results from breast augmentation surgery last?

The length of time a breast implant lasts will vary from person to person. Most studies have found that breast implants can last from ten to twenty-five years. This depends greatly on the type of implant you choose and the placement of that breast implant.

When you come to Star Plastic Surgery for your breast augmentation consultation, one of our board-certified breast surgeons will carefully discuss all of your options with you. They will also take into account your lifestyle choices and aesthetic desires before giving you an idea of how long your breast enhancement surgery results will last.

How big can I make my breasts with breast augmentation surgery?

The breast surgeons at Star Plastic Surgery offer breast augmentation that produce a natural look and complement your entire frame, enhancing the natural curves of your body.

We are devoted to your satisfaction and will listen closely to your desires regarding clothing options and overall appearance. Based on the information you supply and a full assessment of your entire body, we will be able to help you determine what size and shape implant will best meet all of your needs.

Will breast augmentation interfere with breastfeeding?

Breast augmentation should not interfere with your ability to breastfeed. Some incision options may cause decreased nipple sensitivity, and implant placement option can reduce breast milk flow, however, these complications are rare.

Our surgeons take great care in the placement of your breast implants at Star Plastic Surgery. We do not offer periareolar incisions, eliminating any risk associated with decreased nipple sensitivity. Our board certified plastic surgeons take the time necessary to provide you with a safe and effective breast enhancement procedure and to minimize any risk of future complications with breastfeeding.

Will breast augmentation interfere with mammograms?

Breast implants placed underneath the muscle do not interfere with mammograms. Our board certified breast surgeons place all of our patient’s implants underneath the muscles in the chest to ensure a natural look and to minimize complications like capsular contracture and interference with mammograms.

Is breast augmentation expensive?

The actual cost of your breast enhancement procedure will vary depending on factors including the amount of time surgery takes and the depth at which your breast implants are placed. Your final costs will include the fees of the hospital or surgical center where your procedure is performed as well as the costs of anesthesia, medical fluids, and on-hand medical professionals.

Since each patient is an individual and may have specific needs for their surgery, our doctors do not give breast enhancement quotes over the phone, nor do we place a general price guide on our website. After we have met with you personally and have had a chance to assess your needs, body type, and aesthetic desires, we will be able to provide you with a specific cost estimate for your desired procedure.
