Breast augmentation after breast feeding
Thank you for your question. I would generally recommend waiting 3-6 months after pregnancy, breast feeding or when you return to a stable post-pregnancy weight/shape.
When Should I Get Breast Augmentation After Weaning
Thank you for submitting your question. I tell my patients to wait a miniumim of 6 months after they complete breast feeding before they undergo breast surgery. Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best Wishes
Wait 6 months
I usually recommend patients wait until about 6 months after they've stopped breastfeeding before undergoing surgery.
When Should I Get Breast Augmentation After Weaning?
Best to wait at least 3 to 6 months before proceeding with breast augmentation surgery, after you have stopped breast-feeding. Also, best to achieve a long-term stable weight prior to proceeding.
Breast Augmentation After Breast Feeding: How Long Should You Wait?
Most surgeons will say
that you should wait somewhere between 3 and 6 months after breast feeding
before you get a breast augmentation.
However, the only thing that matters is that your breasts have returned
to their pre-pregnancy size so that you can a good feel for what size you want
to be. This can take a month or
more. Some physicians worry about
hormones but the two hormones from pregnancy that persist in lactating mothers
are oxytocin and prolactin. Both of
these hormones usually return to normal or pre-pregnancy levels by 2 to 3 weeks
after you are finished breast feeding.
Therefore, for sizing purposes, you should wait until your breasts are back to their
normal pre-pregnancy size. This may be as short as two or three weeks after weaning. There is no need to wait longer.
I hope that helps.
HOW SOON AFTER BREAST FEEDING FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION
After you have stopped producing milk, I would recommend
waiting 6 months to a year before having a breast augmentation. Pregnancy alters a woman’s body in many
different ways and it takes time to get back to your normal self. Placing implants into breasts that are still
lactating can increase your risks of complications later. Once you are finished breast feeding your
breasts will have to re-acclimate to not producing milk. If you have an augmentation too soon and don’t
allow your breast tissue and mammary glands time to adjust, you will increase the
possibility of needing a revision at some point. I recommend continuing to research for board certified
plastic surgeons on RealSelf. Then
schedule a consultation once you have successfully weaned your baby to confirm
that you are a candidate for a breast augmentation and to discuss when would be
the right time for you to have breast augmentation surgery.
Be well and good luck!
Breast Augmentation following breast feeding
It is best to wait until your breasts have returned to normal after you have stopped breast feeding prior to undergoing a breast augmentation. I would wait a minimum of 6 months - a year even better
Weight 6 months or longer after done breast-feeding before breast augmentation
Thank you for your question.
I suggest waiting 6 months or preferably a year after finish
breast-feeding before you have breast augmentation surgery. It takes
time for the breast gland to return to a normal state after
breast-feeding. If you have breast augmentation too early many of the
glands are still producing milk, and have not atrophied or reduced in
size. You want the gland to be in its final state before surgery. If
you have breast augmentation while the gland is still enlarged and it
reduces in size later this may affect your result.
Be sure to consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the
American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in your procedure, and who has
an excellent reputation in your community.
Wait 6 months after nursing for breast augmentation.
After your milk has completely dried up, wait a minimum of 6 months and then schedule a consultation.
Breast implants OK 6 months after stopped breast feeding.
You want to let all of your hormones settle down before having elective surgery. So wait six months after you stop breast feeding and then have breast implants.
