If you would like to improve the appearance of your breasts, then breast augmentation may potentially be an excellent solution to achieve your goals. However, it is important to consider the timing of this major decision. While breast augmentation may not affect your ability to breastfeed in many instances, future pregnancies will often have an adverse impact on the results of your procedure.
Following pregnancy, the skin of the breast will stretch and will often become more "droopy" in appearance over the underlying breast implant. If the droop of the breast is mild, a somewhat larger implant might be considered. For moderate to more severe drooping following breast augmentation and pregnancy, some form of breast lift is recommended to correct the condition. Keep in mind that gravity will again act on the breast and breast lifts, like breast implants, often require maintenance over time.
If you are planning on having children in the near future, you should discuss this with Dr. Orringer during your initial consultation. While future pregnancies certainly do not rule you out as a breast augmentation candidate, it is important to understand how this may affect your outcome.
