Breast augmentation candidate, some advices:
When to have a breast augmentation?
Hi and thanks for your question,
You are in a very common situation! From your photos it appears that you lost volume and that all you need is a breast augmentation (not a lift as well). You could go ahead with an augmentation now and it would be perfectly safe for you to breastfeed. However, you a completely correct that there is a risk of them sagging after you are done breastfeeding. This would be affected by how big of an implant you had placed and how much your breasts grew during breastfeeding. You would indeed decrease your risk of sagging with a smaller implant. If you did develop sagging, you could always have it corrected with a breast lift in the future (and even with a larger implant if you wanted).
Hope this helps!
Breast Augmentation a bad idea if we aren't done having kids yet?
You have two children and plan to have another in about three years. Your question regarding having breast implants before or after the next child does have some of the risks that you mentioned, namely, the possibility of stretch marks and sagging. It appears that you have none of these now, but achieving the size of a small D does increase the risk.
If the implant is placed behind the muscles, you should have no problem with breast-feeding causing complications. Generally, there is a range of sizes that a patient would be pleased with. To reduce the risk of stretching and sagging, I would choose the smallest size that would still make you happy.
The best way to determine the right size is to see a board certified plastic surgeon and have him use "sizers" with a bra and T-shirt. You can look at yourself in a full length mirror from different angles and determine the size that you like. Bra manufacturers do not generally standardize cup sizes very well, so be sure to go for the size that makes you look the best rather than concentrating on the cup size.
One other comment is that most ladies have implants before their pregnancies and arte elated with the results.
Thank you for your question and photographs and I wish you the best of luck.

Thank you for your question. If you are planning to have kids in the short term, it its best not to do a breast surgery until you have them. But if your plan is to have kids in 3-5 years surgery can be done placing the right implants so you don't have big changes on your breasts.
I hope my answer will help you to your question.
Before undergoing any surgical procedure, please seek a board certified plastic surgeon

Thank you for your question and photos. I recommend that you discuss your concerns and goals in person with your chosen Plastic Surgeon. They will examine and measure you then provide options. You may be correct that a natural, subtle augmentation now may mean you don't have drastic changes to the breast or sagging later. Post breastfeeding ptosis is always a consideration however. Breast implants should not prevent you from breastfeeding should you wish to have them first.
All the best
