Breast Augmentation After PregnancyLast Updated: November 25, 2016 | Author:
Houston women, whose pregnancies affected their breasts in terms of size, volume, and lift may want to consider a breast augmentation, especially if you are through having children. Being pregnant and giving birth is among the most rewarding experiences that a woman can have. However, being pregnant and nursing can take its toll on the body and breasts. They can be stretched to a point beyond their ability to revert to normal. When this happens they are often left sagging and smaller. This can make a woman feel quite unattractive. Fortunately, the aforementioned breast enhancement procedure is an excellent solution to this problem.
It is advisable to wait at least 3 to 6 months after your last pregnancy before you have breast augmentation surgery. Some doctors recommend that you reach your ideal pre-baby weight, as well. A breast surgery will not prohibit you from having a baby, or breastfeeding. It is safe to do both after a breast procedure. It is just that you may need additional work if your breasts are impacted by the pregnancy once again. It therefore makes sense to wait and enjoy the results of the surgery.
The procedure is considered to be very safe but for the best possible outcome and the safest surgery you should engage a breast augmentation surgeon who is talented, highly qualified, and very experienced with the surgery. A good indicator of experience and skill is board certification. Make sure that your prospective surgeon is board certified with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This ensures an extra level of training, experience, and ethics. Board certified plastic surgeons are held to a higher standard of excellence and ethics.
The surgery requires the use of implants inserted into the breasts for size and volume. Implants come in two types that are used most often. They are comprised of silicone shells filled with either saline (a sterilized solution of salt and water), or silicone gel. Saline implants can be used to not only increase size, but to lift the breast, as well. An anesthetic is required, and depending on the extent of the surgery and the surgeon, either general or an intravenous sedation is indicated. You and your surgeon will determine the size and shape of the implants, and ultimately your breasts. The implants are inserted either through the areola, under the breasts, or through the armpit. There will be scarring, but the scars will fade to a degree over time, and a good surgeon will practice aggressive scar therapy.
Pregnancy is a wonderful thing. Being a mother is extremely rewarding, but at the same time, very hard work. You deserve something extra. There is no reason why a baby should spoil your figure on a permanent basis. You deserve to look and feel as good as you can. A breast augmentation procedure is a great way to achieve that goal after your babies have come.
