Post-Pregnancy Breast Augmentation – Answers to 5 Common Questions

Did pregnancy ruin the appearance of your breasts? Many women experience breast changes after pregnancy and breastfeeding, turning to breast augmentation to restore a youthful, perky appearance. If you’ve experienced unwanted breast changes after pregnancy, give us a call to schedule your consultation with one of the best breast surgeons in California, Dr. Sajjadian.

How Long Do I Need to Wait After Pregnancy Before Breast Augmentation?

Many women are anxious to restore a pre-pregnancy appearance to their breasts, but you may need to wait a bit to achieve optimal results. Dr. Sajjadian typically recommends that you wait until you’ve finished breastfeeding for about 3-6 months before scheduling your consultation. The breasts undergo significant changes as they shrink to their new size.

I’m Planning on Having More Children. Do I Need to Wait for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation can be performed before or after children. Many women opt for breast augmentation in their late teens or early 20s, long before their first child. Although the breasts may undergo some changes after pregnancy, many women still love the look of their breasts with implants. Revision surgery or a breast lift can correct any post-pregnancy breast changes.

Can I Breastfeed After Breast Augmentation?

Many women successfully breastfeed after breast augmentation. If you’re considering future children and hope to breastfeed, let us know. Dr. Sajjadian can use a type of incision that is more conducive to future breastfeeding. In some cases, placing the implant over the muscle can increase your chances of future breastfeeding success.

What’s Recovery Like After Breast Augmentation? Will I Be Able to Care for My Children?

You will need some downtime to heal from your surgery, but most women find the recovery period completely tolerable, even with young children. You’ll need to avoid heavy lifting for a few weeks so, if have young children, you may need some help. We’ll give you all the details about recovery during your consultation.

I’ve Experienced Other Changes After Baby. Are There Other Treatments I Should Consider?

Breast augmentation is an excellent way to restore a pre-pregnancy appearance to your breasts but, if you’ve experienced other changes, you may want to think about doing a bit more. Many women opt for a mommy makeover after they’ve finished having children. Other procedures to consider include a tummy tuck and liposuction. Dr. Sajjadian will help you determine which procedures can help you restore the body you once loved, and can love again!
