Are Breast Implants Safe For Pregnancy?

 

breastaug6Are you considering breast augmentation surgery in Omaha, but unsure if you’ll be having additional children? Are you curious as to whether or not future pregnancies might affect your breast augmentation results? Are you wondering if you should delay breast augmentation surgery until after you have had all the children you want? If you’re thinking about becoming pregnant in the future, but also want breast implants now, you’ll want to read this blog post to know how pregnancy might affect your breast augmentation results.

Breast Implants Are Safe for Pregnancy and Breastfeeding.

When it comes to pregnancy and breast augmentation, the most important thing to remember is that breast implants – either silicone or saline – are safe for both pregnancy and breastfeeding. True, certain incision types may interfere with milk ducts, affecting your ability to breastfeed. But when you come in for a breast augmentation consultation with Omaha area board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ayoub of Westfield Plastic Surgery Center, he will consider your future plans for pregnancy and breastfeeding when deciding on what incision type to use for your breast augmentation surgery.

Whether or Not Pregnancy Will Affect Your Breast Augmentation Depends on Your Unique Physique.

Unfortunately, there’s no straight answer to tell you whether or not a future pregnancy or breastfeeding will affect your breast augmentation results. While your breast implants will not change with pregnancy or breastfeeding, it is possible that your breasts will have stretch marks, reduce in size, sag or lose volume after pregnancy. If you have a breast augmentation before pregnancy and that experience some of these effects, you may consider having a breast lift in the future to repair the damage that pregnancy and breastfeeding have done to your breasts. Some women, however, see no changes in their breasts after pregnancy and/or breastfeeding.

If You’ve Been Pregnant Before, Your Past History Can Predict Your Future Results.

The best indicator as to what future pregnancies might due to your breast augmentation results is knowing what previous pregnancies have done to your breasts if you’ve had children in the past. If your breasts have become deflated, smaller, or sagging after pregnancy and breastfeeding, then the results of a breast augmentation now may be affected by future pregnancies. But some women see no changes in their breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding, and if your breasts have remained unchanged after childbirth, it’s possible that you won’t need any additional surgery after pregnancy.

Speak to Omaha Dr. Ayoub About Your Concerns.

When it comes to deciding whether or not to have breast augmentation surgery in Omaha before you are done having all of your children or after, timing is everything. Are you self-conscious of your breasts, and years away from having children? If so, then having a breast augmentation now may give you the confidence and sense of self-esteem that you need to be happy today. But if you are planning on becoming pregnant in the near future, say within a year or so, you may want to delay breast augmentation surgery until after you are done having children and breastfeeding, just to make sure that you won’t require additional, follow-up surgery in the future.

If you are considering breast augmentation in Omaha, we highly recommend that you call Dr. Ayoub’s Omaha area offices at (402) 829-6384 for a complimentary consultation and examination. During this appointment, Dr. Ayoub will be able to answer all your questions about breast augmentation, future pregnancies, and breastfeeding.
