Q: Are silicone breast implants safe?
A: The FDA states that silicone breast implants are "safe and effective." In 2012 there were nearly 1/3 of a million breast implant procedures, and 72% chose silicone breast implants, 28% chose saline breast implants.
Q: What are some potential complications of breast implant surgery?
A: Complications of breast implant surgery include but are not limited to implant rupture, infection, scarring, and hardening around the breast implant called "capsular contracture." There are also risks to the surgery itself and anesthesia for the breast implant surgery. Your surgeon will discuss your concerns about breast augmentation and ways to reduce risks of complications in detail at your consultation.
Q: Why do I have to stop aspirin, ibuprofen, herbs and vitamins before breast implant surgery?
A: Anti-inflammatories, many herbal products and some vitamin products have blood thinning properties which could increase risk of bleeding during or after your breast implant surgery. The safest thing is to avoid them before and after your surgery. It is OK to take acetaminophen as a pain reliever if you need something before breast implant surgery. Let your surgical team know what medicines and supplements you take well ahead of surgery so we can optimize them for your breast implant surgery.

A: No. The costs of breast implants for the $3000 saline breast augmentation or $3995 silicone breast implant surgery is the same regardless of where you and your Newport Beach breast surgeon chose to make the incision, whether under the nipple, at the breast fold, or in the armpit.
