Post-Pregnancy Breast Enlargement Procedures

Friday, November 4, 2011
Let's face it. Pregnancy is not kind to a woman's body. Pregnancy pushes our bodies to the limits. We experience stretching and pulling that we never thought were possible. When the baby arrives, we are too lovestruck to notice the many changes that have occurred to our bodies. But after several months, reality sets in, and we begin to notice the image that stares back at us from the mirror.

Mothers have a lot of adjustments to face following pregnancy childbirth. Obviously, there are all of the hurdles that come with having a new infant child. However, there are also a number of personal, physical issues that many mothers feel the need to address. For example, many women seek help cutting off excess weight, or tightening up the skin in the belly area following childbirth. One of the most popular physical issues addressed in “mommy makeover” processes, however, is actually the changes that can occur in breasts due to pregnancy. Often, new mothers turn to plastic surgery, and specifically to breast enlargement procedures, in order to address these issues and to restore their bodies to the way they were pre-pregnancy.

It is a simple and unfortunate fact for many new mothers that the breasts can be negatively affected by childbirth. Obviously, the breasts play a key physical role in caring for newborn infants, and the stresses placed on them result in changes in size, shape, etc. Fortunately, there are a number of different breast augmentation procedures that can help in restoring the breasts to the way that they once were. Many women simply want a bit of a “lift” following pregnancy, but it is also a popular decision to get implants in order to regain some size, shape and consistency.

One of the problems that can arise from undergoing such a procedure as part of a mommy makeover process is that it can handicap you to some extent. However, you certainly don’t want to be incapacitated while you are caring for a newborn child, as you will likely need to be at your best to deal with the new responsibilities. Because of this, you will want to go to great lengths to make sure that the recovery process goes as smoothly as possible. In general, you will want to make sure that you are equipped with the proper pain medication, and that you do as little as possible to aggravate your breasts immediately following surgery. With the right rest and attention, however, the recovery should be relatively quick – and, even better, breast implants are not known to negatively affect any aspect of breastfeeding.

A breast augmentation procedure is just one example of the many ways in which a mommy makeover can help a new mother to regain some former physical traits while not losing a beat in caring for the new child. It is very important to make sure that you are satisfied with yourself physically, and post-pregnancy restoration is a bit part of that. Once your body is at the point that you are happy with it, you will be able to fully focus on the joy of raising your new child!
