Breast Implants After Pregnancy and Nursing
Having a baby and breastfeeding can take a huge toll on a woman’s body. For some, this can include unwanted changes to breast size and shape. Breast augmentation can be a great solution for women who have experienced these changes, and would like to restore their breasts to their pre-baby size and shape.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation After Pregnancy
- Restore breasts to a more youthful and pre-pregnancy appearance.
- Enhance breast shape, symmetry and size.
- Can correct sagging breasts.
- Help women feel more confident and attractive.
Who Is a Candidate for Breast Augmentation After Pregnancy?
You may be a good candidate for breast augmentation after pregnancy if you:
- Have finished breastfeeding.
- Have realistic expectations about your results.
- Are in good overall health.
- Are looking to restore your breasts to their pre-baby shape and size.
Types of Breast Implants After Pregnancy
There are two common types of breast implants after pregnancy: Saline and Silicone.
- Saline Implants: Saline implants are composed of a silicone shell and filled with sterile salt water. Saline implants are usually inserted into the body empty, and then filled once they are implanted. Saline implants typically offer less of a feedback regarding the trauma of the implantation procedure, and patients report less discomfort in the early post-operative period.
- Silicone Implants: Silicone implants are composed of a silicone shell and filled with a silicone-based gel. Silicone implants are typically pre-filled and then inserted into the body. Silicone implants are known to have a more “natural” feel and can offer a more realistic choice for women who are looking to restore a breast that was once full and supple.
For women who are looking to restore their breasts to their pre-baby size and shape after pregnancy and nursing, breast augmentation may be a great option. Women who are good candidates for breast implants should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations about their results, and should have finished breastfeeding. Saline and Silicone implants are both used for breast augmentation after pregnancy, and women should speak to their doctor about which implant is best for them.
