Como se dice "breast implants"? (NOT as sick as I sound)

We're going over the conditional in spanish right now. My teacher said it could be used for conjecture, so I thought if I was finally learning what tense people would use when gossiping (This should make soaps easier to understand, right'). As an assignment, we're coming up with phrases to use it with, and translating them. I'm wanting to say "Are those implants'" because that's a question I hear a lot, especially on TV.
Also, how might I wonder if some one wandered off'

For much the same reasoning as James´s "¿Adónde habrá ido John'"< thing you could also say "¿Serán implantas? The only difference being, that it suggests a bit more doubt.

You could use the conditional to talk about wondering or conjecturing in the past.

Lalo se lo habría dado antes de salir.
Eddy probably gave it to her before leaving.

James Santiago said:

Se dice implante de mama. The word mama is not "mom," but breast, as in mammary. But the question "Are those implants" would not take the conditional form, which is very close to "would (verb)" in English. "¿Son implantes'"

¿Adónde habrá ido John?

I wonder where John went?

¿Se habrá alejado John?

I wonder if John has wandered off.


Dang.
Well, I made the assumption because wondering if someone was pregnant could work... oh well. Thank you!
