Feeling Unhappy With Your Breasts After Pregnancy? Breast Augmentation Is a Great Option

Just think, in nine short months, your body forms a human life and then supplies crucial nourishment for many months after delivery. When it’s all over, you’re rewarded with a wonderful family, but your body has been put through the wringer, and you may not like the results. One of the biggest complaints among women is post-pregnancy breasts, which often slump down after their jobs are done, looking deflated and uneven.

Here at our practice, Dr. Mrudangi S. Thakur offers many effective solutions that help women in the Jefferson Valley, New York, area reshape themselves after pregnancy, with breast augmentation topping the list. In fact, breast augmentation is at the top of the national list, ranking number one in plastic surgeries in the U.S., with more than 333,000 procedures in 2017 alone.

If you’re unhappy with your breasts after pregnancy, here’s how breast augmentation can help.

A bumpy journey

When it comes to the transformation of your body during pregnancy, your breasts are often the first areas where you notice visible changes, even before your baby bump begins to show. As your hormones surge, your breasts jump into action and store fat, as well as prepare for breastfeeding. As a result, your breasts often grow bigger starting in your first trimester.

From there, your breasts continue to change in size, often dramatically, as you make your way through pregnancy and breastfeeding, forcing you to accumulate a closetful of varying sizes of bras.

Once you wean your baby, your hormones level out, and your breasts become dormant. As everything settles back into place, some women bounce back easily, while others are left with the aftermath of the sudden shape changes — namely hollow, smaller, and often uneven breasts.

Meeting many goals

There are many reasons why our clients turn to a breast augmentation after they’re done having children, and these reasons may be wildly different. Some women want to regain their pre-pregnancy shape, while others may have come to enjoy their enlarged breasts during pregnancy and want to keep up with the new look.

Whatever your motivations for a breast augmentation, we’re here to help and can sit down with you to review your goals and your expectations. And speaking of expectations, we’d like to point out that if you’re looking to correct sagging breasts after a pregnancy, a breast augmentation may not be the procedure you’re seeking. Instead, a breast lift, which we can combine with an augmentation, may be your best bet for repositioning your breasts back higher on your chest.

A breast boost

If you’re looking to fill in the breast position you already have, a breast augmentation is a perfect solution. We offer three different kinds of implants to augment your breasts, including:

When you come in, we review these options and help you choose the right one for your goals. There are many things to consider when choosing a breast implant, from budget to scars, so we make sure that you have the information you need to make an informed decision.

For your consideration

Many women are champing at the bit to get rid of the pregnancy evidence as soon as possible, but we urge you to approach a breast augmentation with patience. We certainly aren’t here to dissuade you from a breast augmentation; we merely want you to understand that your breasts generally need six months or so after weaning before they take on their final post-pregnancy shape.

As well, if you have an active baby or toddler, please keep in mind that even though we perform a breast augmentation as an outpatient procedure, you will still need time to heal, and you’ll need to limit certain activities (hugging your child, as an example).

This is why we recommend that our clients choose a period when they can devote a little more time to themselves. And when you’re ready, we’ll help you achieve the post-pregnancy body of your dreams.

If you have any questions about our breast augmentation procedure, please feel free to give us a call, or use the booking feature on this website to set up an appointment.
