Welcome

Your Guide to Breast Implants and Breast Health

This website is your best guide to find out about breast implants. Unlike most breast implant web sites, we are not selling you anything, and the information on our web site is not paid for by plastic surgeons or breast implant makers who want you as customers. Created by the scientists at the nonprofit National Center for Health Research, this website provides the most accurate information available, so that you can make the choices that are best for you.

Whether you are considering breast augmentation or thinking about breast reconstruction after a mastectomy, we will guide you through the decision making process, explain what you can expect after the surgery, and help with any questions that arise. If you already have breast implants and are experiencing any problems, we can help with that too.
