Breast Augmentation After Pregnancy

For many women who choose our practice, breast augmentation can be the perfect solution to restore the breasts back to their pre-pregnancy shape.

Breast Changes
Your breasts go through a lot of changes during pregnancy and nursing, and sometimes these changes have a permanent effect on the appearance of your breasts. Breasts may end up larger or smaller, or they may change shape and placement from high and full to lower and seemingly deflated. These changes are a combination of hormone fluctuations, weight gain and loss in a short amount of time, and milk production that causes breasts to swell.

Breast augmentation can help Orange County women resolve volume loss by using implants to build up your profile once again. Incorporating a breast lift at the same time can help reposition and reshape your existing breast tissue, so the end result is higher, fuller breasts that are more similar to the figure you had before having kids. Breast lifts can also be performed without implants to give your natural breasts a boost.

Timing Is Everything
Although women can choose to have breast augmentation and/or a breast lift at any age, it’s a good idea to wait until you’re sure your childbearing years are behind you before committing to surgery. Future pregnancies can bring about more changes to the breast and body that could potentially undo any corrections you’ve already had. Waiting until you’re committed to your next stage of life gives you the freedom to enhance your breasts without having to deal with concerns that future pregnancies could change your body yet again.
