Breast Augmentation And Pregnancy
During pregnancy, breast tissue will grow and breasts will become enlarged. If you have had breast augmentation, these changes may obscure your results. However, changes in the size and shape of the breasts during pregnancy are caused by hormones and milk production and, once you have finished breast feeding, will likely have very little impact on the long-term results of your initial augmentation procedure. If your results are altered or if you become unhappy with the appearance of your breasts following pregnancy and nursing, board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann would be happy to discuss revision and replacement options with you.
If you are unhappy with the ways pregnancy and nursing have impacted the appearance of your breasts, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center online or by calling our Houston office at 713-766-0071 to schedule your private and confidential consultation.
A concern many women share is how breast implants will impact the production and flow of breast milk. For a majority of women, implants have no impact on the ability to breastfeed. There are, however, some procedural steps that can be taken to reduce breastfeeding complications following augmentation.
Be honest with Dr. Eisemann during your breast augmentation consultation about your future plans for children. This will enable him to make adjustments that help minimize any risks of breastfeeding complications.
The breast augmentation options that are often best for women who plan on having children are:
- Inframammary incisions to eliminate the risk of reduced nipple sensitivity
- Submuscular implant placement to help guard against a compression of milk ducts
During your breast augmentation consultation at our Houston office, Dr. Eisemann will discuss the benefits and limitations of each breast enhancement option to help make sure you are choosing those that will meet your needs now and in the future.
