Pregnancy is a transformative experience, mentally, emotionally and yes, physically. Your labor of love may have left your breasts with a little bit less of their previous perk, but thanks to advances in plastic surgery, you can restore the perky youthful appearance of your pre-pregnancy breasts.
Breast Changes during Pregnancy
Rapid changes in breast size are what ultimately lead to sagging following pregnancy. Sagging may appear immediately after nursing or several years down the road. Either during pregnancy or milk production, the breasts will enlarge. Then, following the end of nursing, they will deflate. What this leads to is strain on your breasts’ natural elastic fibers and the deterioration of their perky appearance.
Restoring Your Breasts
Combining a breast lift with breast augmentation can restore the appearance of your breasts and help you reclaim your youthful curves as you move into motherhood.
In some cases, breast augmentation may be enough to restore volume and perk. However, this will only be the case when sagging is not too pronounced. If the nipple falls below the inframammary fold, there’s a chance that augmentation could increase sagging over time by introducing more weight to an already strained breast pocket.
A breast lift, on the other hand, removes and tightens excess skin, while simultaneously improving nipple placement. Of course, the breast lift cannot be used to introduce extra volume into your breasts. By combining procedures, you ensure that you get the best of both worlds, allowing for well-placed, uplifted, enhanced and perfected brand new breasts.
