Surgery After Giving Birth

Although guidelines vary from surgeon to surgeon, I usually recommend that patients wait about 6 months after they have finished breast feeding before consulting for surgery. Depending on the patient, it may be up to one year after birth before the individual is able to move forward with a cosmetic procedure. As with any surgery, it is important that your body is fully healed from any previous trauma before moving forward.
