Mommy Make-over: Breasts

August 22nd, 2011

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 dissatisfaction in loss of 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 following 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 part of a “Mommy Make-over.”
