Breast Restoration after Pregnancy

Most of the women that come to me for consultations about breast surgery following pregnancy complain that their breast size or shape has changed.   Physical changes may occur even in the absence of breast-feeding.  Click on Documentary Film “Restoring Jennifer” at the top of the page to see the personal story of a young woman’s journey to restore her figure.

Patients often report that there is reduced fullness on the top of their breasts, just above the nipple, along with a general change in breast size. The decreased fullness may be interpreted as sagging or a loss of “perkiness.”
  The most common concern that I hear is the complaint of overall diminished breast size after pregnancy.

Augmentation mammoplasty or breast enlargement surgery is the primary procedure that is used to restore breasts to the size they were before pregnancy.   According to the  The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS),  about 312,000 breast enlargement surgeries were performed last year, making it the most requested cosmetic surgery.  However, there are no specific statistics about how many women chose the surgery as a “Mommy Make-over.”

    Dr. Bashioum is wonderful. He is very personable and answers every concern. I am one week post breast augmentation, still a little sore and the muscles in my chest still feel a little tight, but things are improving daily. I am extremely pleased with the results already. His staff is a wonderful group of educated professionals, each making you feel comfortable. You know you are in good hands when you receive this type of quality care. I would highly recommend Dr. Bashioum and his staff to anyone feeling a need to improve on nature’s slights! Thank you all!
