Expectant mothers have a litany of concerns regarding pregnancy, birth, and child care, but for women with breast implants, breastfeeding shouldn’t be one of them. Not only should you physically be able to breastfeed (implants shouldn’t interfere with milk production), it turns out that breastfeeding itself doesn’t lead to saggy boobs. Hooray!
Breastfeeding and Breast Implants
So, your implants made you just a little too irresistible, and now you’re pregnant. What about breastfeeding? And what about your figure? Will the breasts you’ve just paid major money for just head towards your toes?
Not necessarily. Breastfeeding mothers are in no more danger of saggy boobs than mothers who don’t breastfeed, as it turns out. According to a study conducted at the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine, it’s the hormonal changes causing breast size to increase during pregnancy that are responsible for sagging, not the actual, physical act of nursing.
Breast Implants after Pregnancy
If you want to make the most out of your implants, consider the timeline. If you are either pregnant or trying to become pregnant and haven’t gotten breast implants yet (but are considering it), maybe wait until you’ve seen how your breasts change after your pregnancy before having the procedure. If serious sagginess develops, then you can combine a breast lift with augmentation and kill two birds with one surgery.
Of course, not everyone wants to wait to see if she eventually becomes pregnant to have breast augmentation surgery. If you already have breast implants, then yes, there’s a chance that you’ll experience some sagging. But if you’re bummed about the way your augmented boobs look after your pregnancy, then you can always consult your surgeon and discuss your options.
