There's no question that having kids — and all that goes along with that, from weight fluctuation to breastfeeding — can wreak havoc on a woman's breasts. For many women, changes in their breasts after pregnancy leave them feeling self-conscious about their appearance and desirability. If you are one of these women, our caring team at The Plastics Doc is here to help you look and feel more like yourself once again with a full suite of breast enhancement procedures, including breast augmentation surgery. Here, Beverly Hills board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Samuel Salcedo shares insights on how his signature high def breast augmentation technique can help to restore a more feminine, youthful breast contour to help reverse many of the unwanted changes associated with pregnancy and breastfeeding in Riverside, CA.

Will my breasts go back to normal after having kids?

Although you may enjoy the extra boost in breast volume that comes with pregnancy and breastfeeding, these perks are only temporary. For most women, the breasts not only return to their pre-pregnancy size after they've concluded breastfeeding and lost their baby weight but often end up smaller, deflated, or saggy. This is particularly true for women who are older and/or have had multiple children, though it can happen to virtually anyone.

What should I do if my breasts are smaller after having children?

If you have experienced unwanted changes in breast shape, volume, position, or another characteristic that you'd like to improve or reverse, you may be a candidate for breast enhancement surgery. More specifically, breast augmentation after having kids may be an appropriate consideration for counteracting many of the aesthetic side effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Will breast augmentation make my breasts perkier after kids?

The primary goal of breast augmentation surgery is to add or restore volume to the breast and improve its overall size, shape, and contour. However, many women also achieve an improvement in breast drooping or sagginess with breast augmentation surgery, as the addition of volume via implant or fat transfer (or both) can help to fill out a saggy breast pocket and create a firmer, more lifted look. Additionally, Dr. Salcedo's technique — which combines the form-stable gummy bear implant with a fat transfer to the breast — helps to further boost the results of your breast augmentation by strategically adding volume to the upper pole and creating a natural, fuller shape.

Still, some patients — including those whose breasts sag after having children — may require a breast lift to adequately address more extensive complaints, such as:

  • Pronounced skin laxity
  • Significant breast ptosis (sagging)
  • Downward-pointing nipples
  • Stretched out breast skin

During your private consultation for breast augmentation and lift in Southern California, Dr. Salcedo will listen to your specific concerns and goals for breast augmentation surgery, discuss your available options at length, explain how his high-def breast augmentation approach works in further detail, and recommend a customized surgical plan that is suitable for helping you get the look you desire.
