Pregnancy can take a toll on your breasts. Not only can your breasts undergo major changes in size when you’re pregnant, but they also get pulled and sucked on while breastfeeding. Needless to say, your breasts can look a lot different after having a baby. This is why many mothers choose to have a breast augmentation after pregnancy. Breast augmentation can give you your beautiful, youthful breasts back by restoring volume.
Watch the video below to see a mother of two recovering from her breast augmentation 24 hours after her surgery with Dr. Adams.
How Long Should You Wait After Pregnancy?
We never recommend that women jump straight into breast augmentation surgery after having a baby. It’s important that you finish breastfeeding and your breasts are no longer changing in size. Allow your body to return to its normal hormonal rhythms and weight. Give yourself time to recover. About 3 months after you finish breastfeeding, you can speak to Dr. Adams about whether or not your body is ready for breast augmentation surgery.
While you want to make sure you wait until your body is ready for surgery, you don’t have to worry about taking time off from your baby after a breast augmentation at Dr. Adams Plastic Surgery. Thankfully, Dr. Adams’ 24-hour breast augmentation recovery technique allows busy mothers to get right back to taking care of their children after surgery. You can go back to your normal activities, like driving and grocery shopping, immediately.
How Does a Breast Augmentation After Pregnancy Help Your Breasts?
After pregnancy, many women may notice that their breasts look “empty” and have lost volume. While it’s no surprise that your breasts grow a cup or more during your pregnancy, this added volume can disappear after you have had your baby, giving your breasts a sunken look. We’ve seen some cases where breasts are smaller after pregnancy than they were before, throwing off your breast to body proportion.
Breast implants can provide youthful fullness and shape to your breasts again, dramatically improving your size proportions and balance after pregnancy. Dr. Adams has over 15 years of experience performing breast augmentations on mothers.
About Breast Augmentation Recovery for New Mothers
One of the biggest concerns we have heard from new mothers interested in breast augmentation is the time needed for recovery. After all, it’s important for mothers to spend time with their babies during their early years and be available to take care of them. Dr. Adams has developed a breast augmentation technique that allows his patients to be up and about just 24 hours after surgery. Over 95% of Dr. Adams’ patients return to normal activities within 24 hours after their breast augmentation.
In the video above, you will see a patient of Dr. Adams, 23-year-old Alicia, receiving a live breast augmentation on camera. After Alicia’s surgery is over, the mother of two does exactly what Dr. Adams suggests: she takes a nap and a quick shower and then goes out to dinner. Add in a few arm raises and it’s as if the surgery never happened. She is able to do all of this while taking only prescription-strength Ibuprofen for pain and soreness. Just three days after surgery, Alicia returns to her daily life and her job as a hair stylist. Her results were better than she imagined.
If this seems too good to be true, be assured it is what Dr. Adams does every day; however, many surgeons make various claims of offering quick recovery breast augmentation. Patients should be critical in their evaluation of many claims. If a surgeon promises great results and has not:
- demonstrated them during live surgery
- published their recovery in peer reviewed journals
- treat patients using the process for breast augmentation principles
- prescribed narcotics for breast augmentation
- do not provide a dedicated patient education consult prior to the surgeon consult
it is extremely unlikely they are giving patients a 24-hour recovery. Dr. Adams has proven and taught his 24-hour recovery technique to thousands of surgeons many times during national and international meetings and live surgery symposia. In fact, he has been invited to perform more live breast augmentation surgeries in the past five years than any other surgeon. The 24-hour recovery is what makes his surgery technique so desired by patients, especially busy moms.
If you’re a mom who’s worried you don’t have time to take care of your children and get breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Adams’ breast augmentation technique may be a great solution for you. Not only will Dr. Adams give your perky breast back with youthful volume after pregnancy, but you will also be able to go back to caring for your baby immediately after surgery.
