# Pregnancy With Breast Implants
Undergoing breast implant surgery can be a life-changing procedure for many women. Breast implant surgery can provide greater self-confidence and improved body image for many women who choose to have it done. But for some women, pregnancy is an important part of their lives, and it’s important to know whether undergoing breast implant surgery can affect their ability to have children.
Below we discuss the important points to consider when it comes to pregnancy with breast implants:
## Can I Still Get Pregnant With Implants?
The simple answer is yes! Breast implants will not prevent you from getting pregnant, nor do they pose any risks to a healthy mother or baby during pregnancy. So, having implants should not stop you from planning a pregnancy if you choose to do so.
## Changes To Breasts During Pregnancy
It’s important to point out that pregnancy can cause changes in your breasts, regardless of whether or not you have implants. Your breasts will get larger and fuller during pregnancy as they prepare for breastfeeding. If you already have larger-sized implants, however, there may be a noticeable change in the breasts due to the extra weight.
In addition, the hormones associated with pregnancy may affect the implants and cause them to shift slightly. This is a normal occurrence and should resolve itself once the baby is born.
## Best Practices During Pregnancy
If you do decide to get pregnant after breast implant surgery, we recommend that you involve your doctor throughout your pregnancy. Your doctor will be able to track the position of your implants, as well as any changes that may occur. It is also important to note that you should avoid carrying around any heavy items during your pregnancy as this could put strain on your implants.
Finally, you may be asked to undergo a range of tests during your pregnancy which involve the use of radiation. If this is the case, your doctor may recommend that you remove your implants prior to the tests.
The decision to undergo breast implant surgery is a personal one, and the same is true for planning a pregnancy. However, it is important to know what to expect should you choose to have a baby after breast implant surgery.
Pregnancy with breast implants is generally considered safe and should not interfere with your ability to have a healthy baby. If you do get pregnant, remember to involve your doctor throughout your pregnancy and make sure to inform them of any changes that occur with your implants. As long as you follow best practices when it comes to pregnancy and breast implants, you should have no problem enjoying your pregnancy.
