Breast Appearance after Pregnancy and Breast Feeding?


Thank you for the question.

Every  patient's breasts respond differently to pregnancy and breast-feeding.

Some patients experience minimal changes;  most patients experience some decrease in breast volume (involutional hypoplasia)  and/or sagging (ptosis).  Whether stretch marks occur or not is also dependent on the specific person.

I would suggest, under the guidance of your OB/GYN, that you maintain a stable weight; severe weight fluctuation can be detrimental to the appearance of the breasts after pregnancy/breast-feeding.

Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy and infant.

it is difficult to predict how the breasts will respond to pregnancy. All the above can occur( stretch marks, sagging, may need an adjustment.
