How long after pregnancy should I wait before I can get breast implants and undergo breast lift?
Some patients only need an implant to fill out the breast following pregnancy while others will require an implant with a breast lift. This will depend on how much excess skin you have and the position of your nipple following pregnancy changes. It is best to wait 3-6 months after pregnancy or, if you breast feed, 3-6 months after breast feeding. Keep in mind that you will need help for a few weeks if you have surgery when your children are still small because the procedure will limit your activity levels and your ability to lift a certain amount of weight. Most of my patients are looking to have their breasts restored to the pre-pregnancy shape and size without looking like they are “done”. I specialize in natural results with the restoration of fullness that pregnancy takes away. After pregnancy, the breast tissue atrophies – leaving a flat appearance at the top of the breast, and sometimes leaving the nipple in an unnaturally low position.
