Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Truong and his staff have been absolutely phenomenal through this entire process! It’s been the easiest change I could have imagined and I LOVE my body’s changes! Dr. Truong is talented at his trade and I highly recommend him for BAs!
Carol, the RN that does injections is also highly recommended. She’s funny, knowledgeable, and sincere. She just increased her availability, too!
I came to Dr. Truong over a year ago and he was one of many breast augmentation consultations I’ve had. Upon making an appointment in the Chicago location I was greeted by Monika the office manager. The office is super clean, modern, easy to find, and the overall staff incredibly friendly. This was already a plus in my book.
Dr. Truong and Monika both took their time with me during my consultation; knowing how nervous I was to consider such a procedure for the first time. I came in knowing nothing about breast augmentation and what I would need, however the Dr. Truong guided me into the beat fit and answered all my questions. I’ve never felt so confident in a procedure before, and I couldn’t wait to get scheduled.
Even after signing documentation and putting a deposit down, I got the butterflies about having a Breast lift and implants done. I called the office again and was more than excited to learn that Dr. Truong was more than happy to see me for another consult before the surgery just so my mind is at ease. No other doctor would do this for me! Immediately I’ve felt 110 times better.
My surgery went without a hitch! Literally almost no bruising, no need for drains, limited pain and they were everything I expected.
Now a year later since my surgery I’ve healed up and couldn’t imagine looking any better! I’ve also gone back to Dr. Truongs office for Botox and fillers as well since I trust their expertise. I would definitely recommend Dr. Truong for your plastic surgery needs.
Dr. Truong made my long awaited dreams come true with a beautiful breast augmentation. From the first consultation to the surgery and follow-up appointments I couldn’t be happier with my choice. Dr. Truong was very honest and open about the process and what to expect. He is very skilled and knew what would work best for my body. I’m about 5months post-op and the results are perfect! Dr. Truong always took the time to answer my questions at each appointment and the ladies in the office are also incredibly nice and helpful. Scheduling appointments was always a breeze and everyone is professional, patient and respectful during appointments. They really put me at ease and allowed me to be sure of my decisions without any pressure. The price was very clear upfront and there were no unexpected costs. My only regret was not doing this years ago!
What is a Breast Augmentation?
Breast Augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is a procedure in which implants are placed in order to change the size and shape of the breasts. In some cases, however, breast augmentation can also be considered a “restorative” procedure in which breasts that have lost volume or shape due to weight changes, pregnancy, or other causes are restored to a more youthful state. A breast augmentation procedure is also referred to as “breast enhancement,” “breast implants,” and “breast enlargement”.
Why get a Breast Augmentation?
Women may choose to get a breast augmentation for different reasons, but the most common reason is to enlarge the current size of their breasts. The decision to undergo breast augmentation and the surgeon you choose are very important, but the decisions don’t stop there.

Is a breast augmentation a waste of money?
Scientists say attractive people make 12% more on average
An article from Business Insider reports, “good-looking people make about 12% more money than less appealing folks, and that attractive real-estate brokers bring in more money than their less attractive peers.”
Scientists say there are 3 reasons for this:
1) Employers assume (wrongly) that physically attractive employees are more capable.
2) Physically attractive workers tend to be more confident, and with higher confidence they command higher wages.
3) Physically attractive workers have better social skills when interacting with their bosses, which leads to higher wages.
However we feel about this article, the fact remains that an investment in your attractiveness has a big return on invest financially.
Does breast augmentation surgery hurt?
Most women resume normal activity in 2-4 days
Although this surgery should not be considered trivial, the vast majority of woman have pain only for the first few days and can resume normal activities within 2-4 days. One of Dr. Truong’s patient’s says:
Dr. Truong also has a special technique to reduce post-op pain. He is careful to minimize blunt pulling of the tissue, avoid contact with the cartilage and ribs, and precisely control bleeding.
Will I lose nipple sensation after breast implant surgery?
It is extremely rare.
There can be some loss of sensation in the breast if you go from very small to very large. However, major loss of sensitivity only occurs in about 5% of patients, and of those most recover sensitivity over time.
Should I wait to have breast surgery until after I have kids?
Surprisingly, the answer is not necessarily.
Breast augmentation has been shown to reduce and even prevent breast ptosis (or drooping) after pregnancy and breast feeding. This is due to the fact the implant provides a framework for the breast to hold onto as it goes through changes associated with pregnancy and breast-feeding.
If you wait until after those changes take place then there is a good chance you may end up needing a breast-lift, a much more costly procedure with more scars associated.
Breast Augmentation is “preventative” for post-partum breast deflation and drooping. Since implants also don’t usually affect ability to breast feeding, and pose no risk to pregnacy, there’s really no reason to wait.
Will breast implants affect my ability to breast feed my baby?
Breast feeding and breast implants are 100% compatible
Because the milk ducts are not blocked or disrupted in any way, nursing is compatible with your breast implants.
Breast implant placement: Under the muscle, over the muscle?
Under the muscle or dual plane is usually best!
The placement of the implants in relation to the pectoralis muscle largely depends on the patient’s existing anatomy and sometimes by surgeon preference or training.
Dr. Truong has been trained in all the approaches and placements and will discuss all the options, making the recommendation based on your individual anatomy. In his experience, most patients do best with a submuscular or dual-plane placement due to the need for extra coverage of the implant in upper pole of the implant.
Which implant looks & feels most natural?
Silicone gel implants!
Silicone gel implants are a cohesive gel that mimics natural breast tissue in the way it feels and behaves. It is not a liquid so even if it ruptures, it will not “flow” out. They are also less likely to show rippling which can be a problem in very thin individuals.
Are silicone gel implants safe?
Silicone gel implants are very safe.
Prior to gaining approval by the FDA, Mentor MemoryGel implants were subject to rigorous studies on thousands of patients. To date, there has been no concrete evidence that MemoryGel™ implants pose health risks like cancer, collagen vascular diseases, or chronic pain syndromes.
Based on scientific data, we have no reservations in recommending MemoryGel implants for our patients. In fact over 90% of our augmentations are now performed with silicone gel implants with excellent long-lasting results.
