Breast augmentation is an exciting step for women to restore their pre-pregnancy body after having children. While most women would prefer to begin this step in self care right away, there are some precautions and factors to consider before undergoing another surgical procedure. During your breast augmentation consultation, your surgeon will help you create a timeline for your surgery that is best suited for you. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides breast augmentation to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.
Your Breasts After Pregnancy
During pregnancy, the breasts increase in size as they collect fat and eventually lactate. This can cause the breasts to swell and stretch, and create a deflated, sagging appearance later on.
When Can I Get Breast Implants?
Before undergoing breast augmentation, you’ll want to finish breastfeeding and wait for your breasts to stop lactating. If you are planning to lose a significant amount of weight, you’ll also want to do this before getting breast implants. This helps ensure your results from breast augmentation are reliable, as the breasts are no longer fluctuating in size.
Consider a Breast Lift
For best looking results, you’ll want your nipple to be as centered as possible over your breast implants. If you have too much excess skin for the implants to lift properly, the nipple may hang too low and you may require a breast lift for better results. One way to tell if you may need a breast lift is if your nipple naturally rests beneath the fold under your breast.
Schedule a Consultation
During your consultation, your surgeon will create a timeline of when it is best for you to have your breast augmentation. You’ll be able to discuss your goals, as well as assess your options for breast implants and breast lift.
