Pregnancy is a wonderful experience, and having children even more rewarding! Congratulations to all the Moms out there.
Regardless of whether you breastfeed or not, your breasts will likely have a slightly different appearance.
Post-pregnancy breasts are often:
- lacking volume
- occasionally larger, but droopy
Breast augmentation is one procedure many Moms seek to help get their body back to its pre-pregnancy appearance, or perhaps better than before! Other women seek a breast lift (if they are happy with their volume in a bra and just want perkier breasts), or a breast reduction if they would like to be significantly smaller.
Be sure to visit a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with a great deal of experience in surgery of the breasts for the most informative consultation about your particular options.
