When you get pregnant your body changes, there is no way to avoid it. Everything seems to swell up right along with your belly – your feet, ankles, fingers and yes, your breasts. So, it`s reasonable to wonder if there are any adverse effects to your breast implants. It`s a wonderful time, and you have enough to worry about without wondering if they are going to look the same after the baby comes. There is no clear answer to the question, “Will childbirth affect my breast implant shapes?” But chances are nothing will change as you return to your pre-pregnancy body. So, to put your mind at ease. Pregnancy should not affect the shape of your breast implants.
If you want to have the perfect shape for your breasts even after your pregnancy, ask the experienced surgeons of breastimplants.
That being said, there are some extremely rare cases where the implant has deflated or possibly even hardened during the pregnancy. But, it`s highly unlikely that anything at all will happen.
Though the actual shape and volume are not affected by the hormonal changes in your body, loss of tissue and sagging are more common occurrences. After the baby weight has come off, you may lose volume in your breast tissue. The implants maintained the exact volume they had when they were put in, so their shape is not compromised. However, there is a chance or tissue loss which leads to sagging. A breast lift can easily fix the issue as it will remove the excess skin and tighten up the area to your pre-pregnancy look. Make sure you are finished breastfeeding if you pursue this option.
Having breast implants as you go into childbirth can actually work in your favor. Ladies without augmentation, frequently end up needing breast implants and a lift to settle the sagging and loss of shape that occasionally happens with pregnancy. The good news for those who already have breast implants is that they help retain a voluminous look once the weight has come off and loss of tissue is not as apparent. So, there is a good chance you may not even need a lift when all is said and done.
And, if you are just thinking about increasing your chest size, but pregnancy is still down the road for you, know that you don’t have to wait. Talk it over with your surgeon if you have any concerns. He can tell you about what to expect and also describe your options, such as getting a lift. If you are breastfeeding, it`s best to wait until that is finished before pursuing any other procedures. If there are any other inhibitory factors, your surgeon will let you know during the consultation.
Always make sure that your plastic surgeon is board certified and is licensed to practice in your state. This ensures that you get the very best of care. You have a little one at home now, so if you do need additional procedures, the last thing you want is for it to be botched. Taking care of a child is stressful enough! All you should have to worry about is taking care of the baby and getting back to your pre-pregnancy body.
