With pregnancy and childbirth come various changes for your body, among them being breast ptosis (sagging). During pregnancy and breastfeeding, your breasts may become larger, causing the skin to stretch. As your body adjusts and returns to its original state, the breasts begin to sag due to the lost volume. With these changes, many women wonder how soon after giving birth they can request a consultation for a breast lift. Here, we’ll take a look at everything you need to know.

How Soon After Childbirth Can I Have a Breast Lift?

In general, we ask that patients wait six months after giving birth to consider a breast lift procedure. If you’re breastfeeding, you’ll need to wait three to six months after you finish breastfeeding. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause significant changes to the appearance of the breasts, and it can be hard to create a surgical plan when your breasts change over time.

Should You Have a Breast Lift If You Plan on Having More Children?

Often, we recommend that you wait to have a breast lift if you think you may have more children. Your breasts will change in shape and size with each pregnancy, and we don’t want you to undergo a surgical procedure that may not provide you with the long-term results you’re looking for.

Does a Breast Lift Require an Implant?

Dr. Schaffer can complete a breast lift without an implant. Other times, an implant is necessary to create the patient’s desired appearance. Dr. Schaffer can discuss your goals with you and provide you with a plan that’s best for you.
