It is a normal thing that after pregnancy, some body parts change in appearance particularly the breasts. This happens due to milk production which is essential to give the baby the nutrients he/she needs. For first-time mothers, it is a common thing for them to feel odd about the new appearance of their breasts. Because of sagginess, they often consider plastic surgery which will provide them efficient and effective procedures that will correct their breast imperfections. One of the plastic surgeries that can be performed for mothers out there is the breast lift. This procedure is performed to improve the appearance of the breasts after pregnancy and childbirth.
After childbirth, there is a huge possibility for the breasts to become larger and look fuller, but they can also be more painful to the touch since they become more sensitive. The changes affect not only the new mothers but also their partners. The increase in breast volume causes stretch marks to form. Though they may look as fine lines, they are still aesthetically unpleasing.
Even the size and shape of the nipples can change during pregnancy and breastfeeding. It is recommended to use oils and creams to massage the breasts, starting from the first week of pregnancy to prevent the appearance of stretch marks. Choosing the right bra during the breastfeeding period is also important. The attention and care you give your breasts during this transition time will have an impact on the final shape and appearance of your breasts after breastfeeding stops.
If the breasts look unappealing due to pregnancy, there is one procedure that can be recommended. This is the breast lift which can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or in association with a breast augmentation or a breast reduction. Depending on the level of the ptosis and the complexity of each case, the breast lift can entail up to three incisions. The excess skin is removed and the mammary gland is re-centered and elevated on the chest wall. This means the patient will have perkier-looking, firmer breasts after the procedure.
