Wondering if it's ok to get breast implants if I have no breasts at all?

Sure. Many breast augmentations are done on women with essentially no breast tissue. See a surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgery to evaluate the options in your specific case.
Breast augmentation. Breast augmentation with silicone or saline implants is a safe and reasonable way to augment the breast for cosmetic purposes.
Yes. Yes it is ok but by "no breasts" do you mean: 1) extremely small breasts 2) congenital amastia -see photo) 3) or following mastectomy. In any event, this is approached similar to a reconstruction and there are many options and implants available. I would advise against excessively large implants as this will make you more prone to further atrophy of the exiting breast tissues.
Yes. Breast augmentation is performed for women born without breasts and for those who lose their breasts due to cancer. Find a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic surgery, and who has a wealth of experience with breast augmentation.
See below. If you wish to have breast augmentation of any size, there is only one procedure that has the ability to enlarge your breasts and do so without visible scars-transumbilical breast augmentation. After having performed over 6, 000 of these procedures, it has the lowest complication rate of any other approach, (0 infections), fewest contractures and easiest recovery and natural looking breasts.

Can you nurse with breast implants? If I get breat implants and then get pregnant, will I still be able to breast feed?

Yes. Breast implants are placed under the breast or under the muscles. The incisions are either under the areola or in the submammary crease or in the armpit. In any of the above mentioned points, the breast ducts are mostly intacts. Cosequently breast feeding is not disturbed. Keep in mind that your breasts are small and you might need to supplement the feeding with a battle. Read more...
In theory yes but. Technically breast feeding is possible but if you had small breast to begin with and you had large implants for several years, your breast might have atrophied under pressure and won't be able to produce milk.

Breast implants. Breast feeding is still possible after breast augmentation. I many instances the technique used is through the fold or bottom of the breast.

More tissue of the breast is manipulated when the implant is placed behind the breast. This still doesn't prevent breast feeding. Read more...
You can but risks? The ability to nurse depends on whether the ductal system was interrupted or nerve supply to the nipple may have been compromised.

The next question is: if you can, should you? That is more difficult and there is great controversy. Read more...

Yes. If you are due to have a screening mammogram or are between the ages of 35 and 40 and have never had a mammogram, i encourage all my patients to get their mammograms before having breast augmentation done, even 4 days before. That's why we do screening tests. Read more...

What is the cheapest way to get breast implants?

Be careful. In reality the cheapest way is actually the most expensive way. I have patients come in weekly that recieved a $3000 breast augmentation from a clinic and need major revsion so they end up paying revision fees and the second surgery as well. Be careful and find a surgeon you can trust. There is a helpful blog entitled "the anatomy of the $3000 breast augmentation" that you should read! Read more...
Beware cheap surgery. I try to discourage my patients from price shopping for surgery. While i understand that cost is a factor, i believe it is much more important that you find a surgeon who you trust and are comfortable with after meeting with them. I also believe that you should make sure the surgeon is board certified in plastic surgery and not some other "cosmetic" board that does not meet the same standards. Read more...
Cheap breast implant. I tell my patients not to go to the cheapest place in town. You should research your surgeon, view before and after photos, feel comfortable with the surgeon and most importantly: see a board certified plastic surgeon! don't be fooled seeing a "cosmetic surgeon" who is poorly trained or not certified. This person usually lacks training, experience and credibility. Read more...
Cheap: not criteria. Price is important in your decision making process but it should not be the most important factor. This is not like buying a ford. This means that not all surgeons are the same and therefore you are not comparing equal results or outcomes. Choose on the basis of qualifications, experience, referrals, compatibility and results. If you still want the cheapest, consider medical tourism or university. Read more...
Not Wise. This question should not be anywhere close to the top of the list. “cheap work is not good and good work is not cheap”. Remember that revisionary breast surgery can be more costly in many ways. Select the best plastic surgeon you can to achieve your goals. If he/she “costs” too much, wait on having the surgery. Read more...
Go for Quality. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure and should only be performed by a qualified surgeon.

It is about the results, no the cost. Read more...
Cheap. Surgery is much like life, "you get what you pay for". Price is a small part of the equation for breast augmentation surgery. The most important factor is seeing a board certified plastic surgeon by the american board of plastic surgery. There are other made up boards such as cosmetic surgery boards that are contrived boards and not recognized. Read more...
Quality, not Cost. I am always concerned when people are seeking the cheapest way to get cosmetic surgery. Often people get what they pay for and, if problems occur, the bill can be much higher than if done properly the first time. Seek consultation with a plastic surgeon and make an informed decision about the quality of your care, not just the price. Read more...
Cheaper not better. The cost for breast augmentation will vary depending on geographic location, type of implant, and type of anesthesia. The national average is $5, 975.

Don't go cheap. Cheap can get expensive very fast. We see complications from "bargain" procedures every day. Please start with a board certified plastic surgeon. University teaching programs will have a resident's clinic. They are usually staffed with board certified plastic surgeons overseeing the work. Their cost may be a little less expensive. http://www.jjrothmd.com/procedures/breast-augmentation. Read more...
