Results of breast surgery after pregnancy
Pregnancy In The Early Post-Operative Period
Based on your history, pregnancy eight months after surgery may have been a significant contributing factor to these problems. Even when the procedure is performed perfectly, this type of problem can occur. It's important to understand that pregnancy is associated with significant changes in a woman's breasts. During pregnancy, the breasts rapidly increase in size as the breast tissue responds to the changing hormonal environment. When these changes occur before wound healing is complete, they can have significant consequences. Under these circumstances, pregnancy can cause distortion of the areola, spread of scars, recurrent breast sag and breast hypertrophy.
Irregardless of the cause, revisional surgery is probably necessary to correct these changes. In this case, revisional breast lift surgery is necessary to re-elevate the nipple areola and correct distortion of the nipple areola.
Under these circumstances, it's important to consult your plastic surgeon and discuss your treatment options. Your surgeon should be able to outline a treatment plan that addresses your anatomic findings and achieves your aesthetic goals.
