Breast Augmentation Revision After Baby?

Mommy makeover surgery is a popular way for women to restore the pre-pregnancy contours of their bodies. In many cases, that can include combining a breast lift with breast augmentation at our Austin practice.

But what if you opted for breast implants earlier in life — before having children? Is breast implant revision surgery inevitable? Not necessarily, but there’s no way around it: Pregnancy changes the size and shape of the breasts. Those changes might be minor, or they could be significant. For many, it does call for surgical intervention to restore the desired appearance of the breasts.

If the changes compromise a woman’s breast augmentation results, breast implant revision surgery provides her with a number of options. These choices actually mirror the options women have when they are undergoing breast augmentation for the first time.

Patients with breast implants who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts after having children can replace (or even remove) the implants. If it has been a while since your primary surgery, you may be pleasantly surprised at the advancements in breast implant options as the industry continues to evolve.

Women who have saline implants, for example, may choose to replace them with the newer generation of cohesive silicone gel implants. They may opt for a size that better complements their post-pregnancy breasts and choose to have them inserted either above or behind the chest muscle. Dr. Blagg and I do usually try to use the incision location used during the primary augmentation, if possible, to avoid additional scars.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause the breast tissue to sag, and in those cases, we can combine a breast lift with the augmentation revision to elevate the breasts to a higher position on the chest that looks more youthful. In some cases, a breast lift alone may be all that’s needed, without an implant revision.

Besides breast enhancement procedures, a mommy makeover also typically includes abdominoplasty (a tummy tuck), liposuction, and even labiaplasty.
