Pregnancy often results in a woman feeling dissatisfied with her breasts due to the changes that occur during breastfeeding and being pregnant. Breast augmentation after pregnancy is a common procedure that can help women feel confident in their bodies again. Before undergoing breast augmentation, there are some factors to consider for your safety and the longevity of results. Your surgeon will help you during your consultation to create a timeline for your procedure that is best suited for you. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides breast augmentation to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
When Can I Undergo Breast Augmentation?
During pregnancy, the breasts accumulate fat and begin to lactate, causing them to swell and become enlarged. After you are done nursing, the breasts may appear saggy and deflated. It is suggested that women should wait 3-6 months after they have finished nursing before having breast augmentation. Additionally, if you are looking to lose weight, you should attempt to do so before the procedure, so that the breast size is no longer fluctuating and the results of your surgery are more likely to be reliable and long-lasting.
Consider Having a Breast Lift
The breasts look most pleasing when the nipple rests as centered on the breasts as possible. During breast augmentation, your breast implants should lift the nipple. However, if there is too much excess skin on the breasts, the nipples may still sag too low, even with the placement of breast implants. At that time, your surgeon may recommend a breast lift to achieve better-looking results. One way to know if you may benefit from a breast lift is if your nipples currently rest beneath the natural fold below your breasts.
Schedule a Consultation
Your surgeon will help you create a timeline for your surgery that will help you have the best outcomes from your breast augmentation. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals, whether you will benefit from a breast lift, and when you will be able to undergo the procedure.
