Breast Augmentation Surgery Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Visit Dr. Tammy Wu's breast augmentation frequently asked questions website:  Dr. Wu's breast augmentation before and after pictures are available for viewing in her office (Breast reduction surgery before and after pictures also available).  Call the office 209-551-1888 to arrange for a viewing of the before and after photos.

A question Dr. Wu as recently asked, but not placed on the Breast Augmentation FAQ website is:  Does those breast enlargement pills (Breast Success, Breast Gain Plus, BE pill, Herbal breast enlargement, breast enhancement cream) work?  The answer is no in general; however for some there may be a very small change - but this gain is a rarity.  Please don't waste your money and risk your health.  The cost of these pills and creams are not cheap either.

Why Stockton, CA?

The location of our main office is in Modesto, CA.  We would like to offer patients in Stockton, a more private place to have their consultation and breast surgeries.  We have seen many Modesto patients go to Stockton for the same reason - to have more privacy when having breast augmentation surgery.  The idea for marketing our services to Stockton was fueled by seeing advertisements in Modesto by Stockton Plastic Surgeons.  We figured, it could work the other way.  We were also encouraged to reach out by our patients from Stockton and by our colleagues.  We understand the need for going out of town for surgery, especially if you are very well known in Stockton.  It may also be that you work in the medical profession in Stockton and need a different place to have your surgery, as you are friends with most medical doctors, nurses, and assistants in your own town.  We do not have a satellite office in Stockton, but many of our patients are from Stockton and if the demand is high enough, we may consider having a Stockton Plastic Surgery office.  Modesto is right next door to Stockton.  Furthermore, we could provide a second opinion on plastic surgery.  We will make every attempt to make your trip from Stockton worth the effort.

Augmentation by Dr. Tammy Wu, who specializing in breast implants

How does one go about selecting a plastic surgeon?  There are many reasons and we believe that one of the most important ones is comfort level.  There are a multitude of components that provide such a comfort level between patient and doctor. 

Confidence in the doctor is one of the factors that contribute to a patient's comfort level.  Dr. Wu is board certified in Plastic Surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.  She is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.  She graduated as the top graduating female medical student in her Ivy League medical school (Brown University).  She went to a top Plastic Surgery training program at Southern Illinois University.  Many famous Plastic Surgeons graduated from that program.  For example the current president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is an Alumni of Southern Illinois University. 

Communication is another important item.  Dr. Wu emphasizes patient education and spends much time with the patient making sure that all questions are answered.  It's not uncommon for Dr. Wu to spend over an hour face to face with her breast augmentation consultations with each patient.  Dr. Wu is also involved in educating medical students and residents.  This involves the highest level of knowledge and communication to teach new doctors.  She is a assistant professor with UC Davis.

Safety is another contributor to your overall comfort with your doctor.  Dr. Wu performs her plastic surgeries/breast augmentations in fully accredited operating rooms run by hospitals.  We currently do not perform surgeries in our office.  We also use board certified anesthesiology doctors rather than nurses to perform the anesthesia to make you comfortable during your surgery.

Being a woman surgeon.  As for breast augmentation surgeries, there are some advantages to consulting with female plastic surgeon.

We invite you to our office to experience our care and expertise.

Why women choose breast augmentation for themselves

Patient stories of breast augmentation mammoplasty website on breast augmentation - highly recommended reading material for breast enhancement surgery. is a great resource on the web regarding breast augmentation/breast implants and other plastic surgery enhancement procedures for the female form.  It is run by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) which designates board certification to plastic surgeons.  Dr. Tammy Wu is board certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.  In fact the current president of the ASPS is an alumni of the same university that Dr. Tammy Wu attended.  The president of the ASPS is also a female plastic surgeon.  She is the first female plastic surgeon to become the president of the ASPS (Dr. Roxanne Guy).

Before and after pictures of breast augmentation are abundant on the web.  Be sure that they reflect the doctor's own work.  Dr. Tammy Wu has a book of before and after pictures that can viewed privately in her office in Modesto, CA.  She has decided not to place these breast augmentation pictures on the web.

There are many other commonly asked questions such as the price for breast augmentation:  what are the costs of breast implants / breast implantation surgery, how much does it cost for the surgeon's fee, the anesthesiologists fee, and the facility (hospital) fee?  Should the breast implants be placed over or under the muscle? These are best answered by your surgeon, as they vary from location to location and from surgeon to surgeon.  There are too many variables about breast augmentation to list on this website.
