How Long After Giving Birth Can I Get Breast Implants?

How Long After Giving Birth Can I Get Breast Implants? | Houston Plastic SurgerySoon after giving birth, many women wish to regain their pre-pregnancy figure through breast augmentation. Even though most women would like to undergo breast augmentation right away, there are certain matters and safety precautions that need to be taken into account before proceeding with the surgery. During your breast augmentation consultation, your plastic surgeon will help you make a timeline for your surgery specifically tailored to your needs. Female board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kristi Hustak, provides breast augmentation to patients in Houston, Texas and surrounding areas.

When Can I Have Breast Augmentation?

Pregnancy can cause the breasts to enlarge as fat accumulates and lactation begins. After childbirth, the breasts may begin to sag and lose their elasticity. Prior to getting breast augmentation surgery, it is important to finish nursing and ensure that the breasts are no longer producing milk. In order to guarantee that the results from the surgery will be long-lasting, it is recommended to lose any additional weight from the pregnancy before undergoing the procedure. This will guarantee that the shape and size of the breasts after the surgery will not change further.

Should I Have a Breast Lift?

To achieve the best aesthetic outcome from breast augmentation, the nipples should be as centered over the breast implant as possible. If the skin on the chest is too loose, the nipples may hang too low and a breast lift may be recommended. A sign that a breast lift may be beneficial to you is if the nipples naturally rest below the fold beneath the breasts.

Schedule a Consultation

During your consultation, your surgeon will help you determine the best timeline for your breast augmentation. Your consultation is a chance for you to discuss the results you are hoping to achieve and to look into the different kinds of breast implants, as well as discuss whether you may need a breast lift.
