Female Torso Wearing Black BraMany moms deal with deflated, sagging breasts once they’ve finished having children and breastfeeding them. Realizing that their breasts aren’t what they used to be, can be hard on a mom and often makes them feel like they don’t recognize themselves. If you’re a mom in the Phoenix area and you’re counting down the days until you can get back to your old self (and your larger, perkier breasts), you might be wondering how soon after you have finished breastfeeding you will be able to have a breast augmentation with Phoenix’s own Dr. Rod.

There are a couple of things to consider before Dr. Rod will clear you for a breast augmentation. You should:

Wait for at least 6 months after your milk has dried up before having a breast augmentation.

Before Dr. Rod will consider performing a breast augmentation on a Phoenix woman who has recently been breastfeeding, he will require that they wait until they have had no milk production for at least 6 months. This is primarily done to allow your breasts to settle down from breastfeeding and return to their natural, but new shape and size. This will ensure that Dr. Rod will be able to recommend the right shape, size, and type of breast implants that will provide the results you are looking for.

Be certain you are finished having children before you have a breast augmentation.

Dr. Rod wants all of his patients to have beautiful, long-lasting results, which is why he recommends that they be done having children before coming in for their procedure. While there is nothing about the breast augmentation procedure or breast implants that is dangerous for mom or baby (either during or after a future pregnancy), Dr. Rod recommends his patients be done having children before having a breast augmentation because your results will change.

One of the most frequently asked questions is whether breast augmentation will affect breast feeding.  It’s important to realize that a portion of women are unable to breast feed naturally.  For patients that can breast feed, a breast augmentation will not affect this.  Dr. Rod uses and incision that does not affect the milk glands or milk ducts.
