A: breast implants before pregnancy

You can certainly have breast augmentation prior to having children, especially if the implants are placed in a subpectoral (under the muscle) location.  Keep in mind, that the pregnancy may change the size and shape of your breasts and when you have completed having all your children it’s possible that you may need a breast lift.  Another consideration is breast feeding.  Although most patients can breast feed with breast implants in place, there is a small chance you may be unable to breast feed due to the surgery.  I usually advise patients to hold off on implants if they feel very strongly about breast feeding.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon prior to scheduling breast augmentation surgery.

Best wishes,

Dr. Bruno
