In brief: Yes

Dense nodular breast are very common, and do not complicate breast augmentation surgery, especially when the breast implants are placed behind the muscle.
Dense breast tissue does make it harder to survey for breast cancer, so getting a mammogram/ultrasound before breast augmentation may be helpful.

In brief: Yes

Before getting implants you should also have an ultrasound and/or mammogram to rule out any suspicious nodules.
However, you should still be able to get breast implants with dense nodular breasts. In any case whether or not you have nodular breasts you should also continue to be diligent with monthly self breast exams and annual routine physicals.

In brief: Yes after eval

I agree with dr hamawy's answer. At 35, you should first get a screening mammogram to evaluate your breast first.
It may be preferred to place the implant through a inframammary crease approach in a sun muscular pocket to minimize breast tissue scarring and i tercentenary with subsequent mammograms.
