Implants After Breastfeeding: 5 Things To Know

For many women, getting implants after childbearing and breastfeeding offers a way to correct breasts that have lost their shape, size, and firmness. Before making an appointment with a breast enhancement surgeon, there are five things you need to know.

Implants After Breast Feeding: Things To Know

  1. Breastfeeding can cause your breasts to sag.

    There is much debate as to whether breastfeeding does indeed cause the breasts to flatten. After breastfeeding, many women notice that their breasts are saggier than ever. This is due in part to the suction and pressure applied by your baby when he or she is feeding; the amount of milk that is being produced, then drained; and the amount of fatty tissue that is lost.

  2. Breastfeeding can make your breasts uneven.

    Besides losing their shape and firmness, breastfeeding make your breasts irregular and lopsided. One breast may lose more shape than the other, or one may not lose any shape at all. It depends on how your body responds to breastfeeding.

  3. You will have to wait before getting implants.

    Your breasts will need to shrink to their final size. For some women this occurs at six months, for others it can be after a year. There are also cases where women still expel milk months after they’ve finished breastfeeding. This could interfere with your implantation procedure, so it’s best to wait as long as you can before having surgery.

  4. Find the best breast enhancement surgeo.

    You need to see a surgeon who specializes in helping moms get their breasts enhanced after having kids. Furthermore, you can have other procedures done at the same time in what is called a “Mommy Makeover.” This can include a tummy tuck and liposuction.
