Can I Get a Breast Lift While Pregnant?

Breast lift not during pregnancy
Not a good idea to do a breast lift during pregnancy. You should wait until the breast goes through all of the anticipated changes of pregnancy and once they've stopped and stabilized, then its time to look into a lift.
No, No, No, and No.
Not only will your breast change greatly, you will place the baby at risk. You can expect a pregnancy test at time of pre-op, so no getting around it.
Breast lift during pregancy is a no go.
Getting any cosmetic surgery done during pregnancy is not advisable. The stress of surgery and anesthesia can have adverse effects on the fetus. If you have surgery and find that you were in the window period( which is the time between getting pregnant and the test becoming positive), then please discuss your options with your OB/GYN.
During and after pregnancy whether or not you breast feed your breasts will undergo significant changes. Nobody can predict what those changes will be.
Good luck with your pregnancy.

Breast surgery while pregnant?
NO WAY. Your breasts will change a lot during and after pregnancy. You are putting your unborn baby at risk having surgery while pregnant. You are putting yourself at risk for excess bleeding because the breasts are very vascular during pregnancy and lactation. If any tells you this is a good idea, run the other way.

Please do not have an elective procedure while you are pregnant. Please speak to your Ob/gyn to discuss the risks to your unborn child.
Surgery while pregnant
Performing any non-urgent surgery while you are pregnant is not a good idea. For a breast lift in particular, you should wait until after you stopped breast feeding and your breasts have stopped changing (from breastfeeding)
Wait until after you deliver
I know you are excited to have your breast surgery but you should wait until after you deliver. This will give you the best result as well because pregnancy can change your breasts and make them bigger or smaller afterwards! Good luck!
Breast lift while pregnant
In a word, "No".
You should not undergo any type of elective surgery while pregnant.
Wait until after delivery and breastfeeding before having anything done to your breasts.
Prengant and breast surgery
You absolutely cannot have breast surgery while you are pregnant. It could cause undue harm for the fetus. Wait until you are no longer pregnant.
Anesthesia and pregnancy do not mix
If you are pregnant, you cannot have a cosmetic surgical procedure under an anesthetic- so no- you cannot get a breast lift or other cosmetic procedure done during your pregnancy.
