3 Things You Need To Know About Pregnancy and Breast Augmentation in Toronto

Planning for pregnancy is such an exciting time, and if you are already expecting, then you can look forward to organizing your baby shower registry, your nursery decor, and your babymoon. If you’ve had a Toronto breast augmentation, then you may be wondering how your breast implants will be affected by the changes your body goes through in pregnancy.

Here are the top three things you need to

Breast Implants Do Not Interfere With Child-Bearing

Many women who are planning to become pregnant are surprised to find that it can take several months to conceive successfully. If this is the case for you, or if you have heard rumours that breast implants may impact your ability to become pregnant, you can put your mind at ease because this is entirely false.

The silicone shell of modern breast implants is extremely durable and will be able to handle the changes in your natural breast tissue caused by hormones in pregnancy. Provided you havehealed entirely from your Toronto breast augmentation surgery, your implants will not present any concern and no obstacle to becoming pregnant or maintaining a pregnancy. Those who suddenly conceive just after a BA,may find that their breasts are a little extra sore as they quickly grow, however, this is not a health concern and may not even affect the eventual augmentation results.

Having Breast Implants Does Not Rule Out Breastfeeding

Many women with breast implants are successfully able to breastfeed their babies if they wish. Through the IMF or, breast fold incision, Implants are placed underneath the glandular tissue and ducts that produce milk, so they don’t interfere with milk production or flow.

Depending on the reasons for your breast augmentation in Toronto, it is possible that your natural breast tissue may be insufficient to produce enough milk to breastfeed. Women with naturally small breasts who just wanted more volume are generally good candidates for breastfeeding, but may not be able to produce enough milk.

The placement of your incisions may have some impact on your ability to breastfeed, and if you are considering implants but hope to become pregnant and breastfeed, then this is an important point to discuss with your surgeon during your consultation. They will be best able to advise on the incision placement that will have the least effect on your ability to breastfeed in the future.

Breast Changes Vary And Can Be Corrected If Necessary

It’s impossible to predict exactly how your breasts will change through pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast tissue often expands during pregnancy, so much will depend on the amount of breast tissue you have. Women with little natural breast tissue are likely to see minimal changes in the appearance of their breasts. Women with more breast tissue are more likely to see visible changes in their breasts with pregnancy as the tissue increases. After pregnancy, when the chest decreases to normal, sagging is possible, although it does not always occur. The best advice is to go into a maximally supportive bra as soon as you find out your pregnant, and wear it at all times throughout pregnancy and breast feeding, in order to combat possible drooping.

If you’re no longer happy with the appearance of your breasts after pregnancy, a board certified plastic surgeon can provide expert advice in correcting any issues.
