In brief: Yes

In a patient who has low-risk factors for surgery it can be safely done as an outpatient in an ambulatory surgical facility.

In brief: Implants and home

Most patients can go home the same day as a breast augmentation.
Unless you had a medical reason, or just wanted to have the comfort of being in the hospital, you should be able to go home the same day.
