While the abdomen is universally affected during pregnancy, the breasts also go through extensive changes. After childbirth and nursing, many moms come to me to find out how to restore their pre-baby shape. For this reason, breast enhancement is popular with Indiana moms who visit my practice. Let’s go over a few procedures and talk about how they can help restore beautiful breasts after baby.
A breast lift can restore a more youthful shape and position. It can also help nipples look more at-tractive (breastfeeding often takes a toll on them). During a breast lift, the nipple and areola can be adjusted to point forward instead of downward. We use incisions that encircle the areola and are usually concealed after surgery.
Another popular breast enhancement procedure among moms is breast augmentation. Some Indiana patients prefer to add volume to stretched breasts with saline or silicone implants instead of getting rid of excess skin through a lift. Some women actually lose breast tissue after pregnancy and nursing and decide to restore their breast size to what it was before motherhood. Women who had naturally small breasts before baby often choose to go for the full breast size they always wanted.
For many women, cosmetic surgery can be the path to restored or enhanced self-esteem after having children. Most women want attractive, natural-looking results – a goal that is achievable if you choose a qualified plastic surgeon.
