Having children can be one of the most rewarding experiences of a woman’s life. But as we all know, pregnancy can take a significant toll on a woman’s body. Not only does her belly grow to accommodate the growing baby inside her, but her breasts swell in preparation for her option to choose whether or not she wants to breastfeed. All of these changes have effects. Additionally, many of the new mothers in San Diego that we work with, regardless if they chose to breastfeed or not, have noticeable breast sagging after childbirth.
Plastic surgery’s solution to breast sagging is a breast lift. This common cosmetic procedure removes sagging and excess skin and lifts the breasts to a more natural, youthful and perkier position. But if you’re in the middle of your childbearing years and think you might, or know for sure you want to have more children, should you delay having a breast lift until you’re done adding to your family?
Dr. Kaweski’s Advice on Breast Lifts for Women in San Diego of Childbearing Age
Every year, Dr. Kaweski of Aesthetic Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery consults with several women in San Diego about breast lift surgery. And her advice is always kind and honest, yet firm. Because Dr. Kaweski cares that you receive long-lasting results that you’ll love, she doesn’t recommend breast lift surgery for women who think or know they want to have more children.There are two reasons for this recommendation. First, for women who want to breastfeed, a breast lift surgery might make that more difficult depending on your incision type, which may cut through milk ducts. Second, every pregnancy you have presents a new opportunity for your breasts to swell, deflate and then sag. For example, if a woman in San Diego has breast lift surgery after baby number one, she may experience amazing, temporary results. But as soon as baby number two arrives, she’s at risk for developing additional sagging of her breasts, thus negating the results she achieved with her breast lift surgery.
You don’t want to make the financial investment and the investment in your time to recover from a breast lift procedure, only to have those results erased a year or two later after you have an additional child, do you? That’s what we thought. For this main reason, Dr. Kaweski advises all of her breast lift candidates of childbearing age to be certain they are done having children, and to be on a long-term birth control plan to prevent future pregnancies that may negate their breast lift results.
Your Breast Lift Experience with Dr. Kaweski
As you can see, Dr. Kaweski cares deeply about every one of her plastic surgery patients, and their ability to maintain fantastic results from their chosen cosmetic surgery. When you come to her for a consultation on a breast lift, she will treat you with the utmost care and respect as she interviews you so she can understand your problem areas and surgical goals, and work with you on choosing an incision type that will help you achieve the results you desire. Many times, women who live in San Diego desiring a breast lift choose to combine a breast augmentation with the surgery for optimal results. This is entirely possible and completely safe to do.
