Women may wish to have breast augmentation soon after giving birth to restore their pre-pregnancy body. While most women desire to have the procedure done immediately, there are certain considerations and precautionary measures that must be taken into account beforehand. During your consultation, your surgeon will help you in creating a timeline designed for your specific needs for breast augmentation. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides breast augmentation to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities.
When Can I Have Breast Augmentation?
During and after pregnancy, the breasts may swell in size as they accumulate fat and begin producing milk. The breasts may become droopy and lose skin elasticity as time passes after childbirth. Before seeking breast augmentation, you’ll want to complete breastfeeding and the breasts should not be lactating any more. To ensure your results from breast augmentation will be long-lasting, you should first lose any weight from your pregnancy that you’re planning to eventually drop. This will help guarantee the size and shape of the breasts following your surgery will not continue to change.
Should I Have a Breast Lift?
Best-looking results from breast augmentation require that the nipples are as centered as possible over the breast implant. If the skin around the implant is too saggy and loose, the nipple may droop too far down and a breast lift may be recommended. An indication that you may benefit from a breast lift is if the nipples naturally rest below the crease under your breasts.
