How Soon Can I Get Breast Augmentation After Stopping Breastfeeding?

by

“How soon after I stop breastfeeding can I get a breast augmentation?” –  that is a question that I receive quite regularly. Typically I advise my patients to wait at least 3 to 6 months after they stop breastfeeding, this will allow for the breast tissue to settle down from lactating and the breast to reach the final post partum size. Some women can still express a small amount of milk up to 9 months after breast feeding, that is completely normal but shouldn’t affect your decision to proceed with a breast augmentation. The best option is to schedule a consultation if you are truly considering an augment or other breast surgery to evaluate your options.
