You Can Get a Breast Augmentation After Your Pregnancy


A lot of women after childbirth wonder if they may get a breast augmentation done. Star Board Certified plastic surgeons recommend that you should wait for at least six months. There are factors that may go ahead to have the six-month timeline changed, and some are: Will you be breastfeeding or not? Will you want to have more children? Will you want to lose some baby weight?

Can Breast Augmentation Affect Breastfeeding?

In a lot of cases, breast augmentation doesn’t affect breastfeeding. If the breasts were able to nurse a baby before the surgery was done, they would still produce milk after the surgery. A lot of people shy from breast augmentation because they feel it affects the production of milk, but that is not true. There is no scientific evidence to prove that implants can affect the milk production of a woman. A woman that produced milk before undergoing breast augmentation will produce milk afterward, all things being equal. What breast augmentation does is to change the appearance of the breasts, but not how they function. They will definitely work breast implants or not.  


Do I Want A Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, or Both?

Breast augmentations and breast lifts are usually confusing, but they have different meanings. If a woman has lost significant volume because of childbirth or pregnancy, she can carry out breast augmentation. Though it may restore the volume lost, it doesn’t change the position of the breast. If you do breast augmentation for a sagged breast, the area will bit be corrected. This is where breast lift comes into play.
