There’s no doubting the fact that motherhood is one of the greatest joys in a woman’s life. However, pregnancy and childbirth can also put a toll, both physical and emotional, to a woman’s life too. Here at our Encino plastic surgery practice, we have helped mothers recover from the wide array of physical effects of pregnancy as well as its corresponding emotional setbacks.
A breast augmentation with implants is one of the solutions we provide for these mothers. By and large, breast implants can benefit new mothers through the following:
- Volume loss is a common consequence of childbirth and breastfeeding and may lead to other issues such as significant asymmetry (women’s breasts are naturally asymmetrical), sagging, and irregularities in breast shape. Breast implants, whether saline or silicone, can address all the aforementioned issues and help women not just increase their breast size but make it appear firmer and shapelier.
- A breast lift done in conjunction with breast implants can also improve the skin laxity or irregularities around the nipple/areola.
- It can help enhance a woman’s self-esteem following childbirth. For many women, having breast implants is like their starting point to maintaining a healthier lifestyle and a desirable appearance.
If you think that you haven’t experience significant volume loss in your breasts after childbirth but would like to improve its shape and perkiness, a breast lift without implants may work for you.
Planning for Your Breast Augmentation Following Childbirth
Breast enhancement surgery following pregnancy and childbirth is a major surgical cosmetic procedure that needs careful planning on your end. You also need to cooperate with your plastic surgeon to be able to come up with a personalized plan that will help you achieve optimal results. During the planning stage, pre-surgery preparation instructions will be given as well as guidelines for recovery.
