Breast Augmentation for Deflated Breasts After Breast Feeding - Wellesley, MA

- 4 Jul 2012
I am a 27 year old wife and mother of two children, a daughter age 8 and a son age 2. I breastfed both children for the first year. After breastfeeding my daughter I noticed my breasts were smaller but they still had fullness to them and were perky. It wasn't until I was finished breastfeeding my son that I noticed they just were not the same, the had a deflated look to them. I also did a lot of pumping with my son so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it, either way I'm not happy with the appearance of them anymore. I don't have an issue with my breasts when in clothes, but when in the nude I'm a little self conscious. I feel a breast augmentation will make me feel better about myself when I'm naked and in a bathing suit, bra, etc. :) I have been contemplating breast implants for the past year and I have decided to go with it. My husband has been surprisingly very supportive and accompanied me to my consultation in early June. He's more worried about the health risks and healing though. :)
My consultation was with Dr. Robert H Gilman in Wellesley MA, Board Certified of course, he's been practicing plastic surgery in Boston for 30 years. We were very impressed with him, he seemed to know everything there was to know and had all of the answers to our questions. He was with us for about 2 hours talking and showing us before and afters. In the end he decided I should go with either saline or silcone implants moderate profile under the musle. He also said he wouldn't use anything less than 375 cc to make sure there was enough skin to surround the implant and make it look right. I would also have the incision site in the natural crease of my breast. I have thought about it and have decided to go with the silicone, but I'm still not sure if I should get the 375cc or something like the 400cc. Right now I am currently a 34 B so I will have to factor that in to my decision as well. I plan on having the procedure sometime in January after the holidays.
