Breast Augmentation and Pregnancy
Many women are unhappy with the changes their bodies made during pregnancy, and want their breasts to look as they did before their pregnancies. These women will be happy to know that “mommy makeovers” are designed to do just that.
Other women of childbearing age are concerned about how breast augmentation will affect future pregnancies, or how pregnancy will affect their prior breast augmentation. The encouraging news is that breast augmentation and pregnancy are safe for both mother and baby.
While breast augmentation has no effect on pregnancy, the changes to a woman’s body during pregnancy can affect breasts that have been augmented in the same ways as pregnancy affects natural breasts. Normally, a woman’s breasts enlarge during pregnancy, stretching the skin and tissues, and resulting in sagging after the pregnancy. The same can happen after a breast augmentation, losing the shape of the original procedure.
