breast augmentation moms

I had a breast augmentation in May to fix where I had breastfed my first baby. We hadn't planned on getting pregnant again but I am currently 9 weeks. I still plan on breastfeeding and am curious to what my augmentation will look like afterwards. Has anyone else previously had a breast aug and breastfed after that could fill me in on what to expect?

I've read that it isn't the act of breastfeeding that changes your breasts. It's the changes they go through during pregnancy and the hormones. There are women that never nurse and their breasts change from pregnancy and most of it is predetermined by genetics. I breastfed my daughter for 16 months and my boobs looked exactly like they did before I had her. They didn't sag or look deflated. So I'd say the changes you had were from being pregnant and not breastfeeding. I have heard that some women have trouble breastfeeding after an augmentation. It all depends where you were cut. Because sometimes blood vessels are severed and the lack of blood supply changes things. Join the Facebook group Dairy Queens and ask questions you have. I have seen other women ask questions regarding implants/breast surgeries and breastfeeding.

I breastfed my first baby and after I was done and my milk dried up they became very deflated. Which is why I got the augmentation. I know the implants won't be affected nor will they make a difference in my ability to breastfeed.  I am just wondering if my skin will hang lower like it did the first time. Some things I've read have said that some women require a lift to put the skin back in place with the implant after breastfeeding whith them. Im solely curious about the look not the use.

Is the "look" really that big of a deal????

Well considering the fact that I paid a lot of money for them I am curious if I need to be saving to have them fixed or not later on. Thought this was supposed to be a place of support but it appears everyone just wants to talk down to the other moms. Thanks for your help.

I didn't mean to come off so bitchy I just find vanity about breasts and vaginas so silly. These parts of us are meant to feed and birth babies.  I'm just prepared for saggy boobs after breast feeding. I understand where ur coming from tho. Boob jobs are expensive. From what my gfs have gone through they had minor shifting. And some rippling.  Nothing major.

Well call it vanity but I did devote my body to my baby and when he decided that he no longer needed nourishment from me I didn't think it was wrong for me to want my body back. I worked hard to privide for my son and when we had the extra money to make me happy we did it. I am a model and having a pre baby body did affect my work so of course I felt the need to fix that. I was lucky and the saggy after breastfeeding boobs were all that I had afterwards. No my husband didn't push for them either, he supported my decision and wanted me to be happy. Yes go ahead and say then why were you not careful to prevent this pregnancy or why didn't you wait, well we were careful and were not planning on having any more but God decided to bless us with another. I am not complaining that my breast augmentation may change its look after this new one comes along but it doesn't hurt to be just a little curious after I made such a huge investment into it.

I understand you concern! Hopefully it wouldn't effect them that bad. I am slightly concerned this time around because mine have become so enlarged already just being pregnant and have no clue how big they will be with nursing. I have a master plan for breast augmentation and a tummy tuck once my husband is snipped. We may wait for one more. Undesided yet but we will make a decision by time he is 30. Unfortunately pregnancy and nursing effects every women differently. Me personally my worst enemy is stretch marks but not much I can do about it. Good luck and hopefully everything works out. You could always start saving and if you don't need it go on vacation?

That's a good idea. We may do that. Everyone needs a good vacation. Yeah my husband is 30 so we had decided one was enough until well, apparently not. Which is fine. We love our son and are excited to be welcoming another baby into our family. I love my breast augmentation. At first I didn't want one. Then after a while of seeing what had become after nursing my boy it got to me ya know? It took a long time to talk about it and make the final decision to go ahead but now I am so happy I did. I don't think its vain or selfish to do something for yourself after you have given everything to your family. We had the money so it wasn't taking away from what we could give our son. And my husband even saw a change, he wanted me to be happy and the first step was to make me happy with myself. Any mother that has sacrificed so much deserves to feel beautiful again weather its with her after baby body or with a bought one.

You dont have to explain why you got ur boobs done. Appearence is important.  Preserve your body as long as you can. I would save just in case.

I would set some money aside just I'm case. And I agree with you it's not about vanity. I had very low self esteem and my breasts were one of the bigger issues, they were just so small! And it wasn't about how other people viewed me with small boobs it was how I viewed myself. EventuLly I dropped weight. Got my nipples pierced and I feel so much sexier to myself. I wish I had the money to get an augmentation done :p I'm kinda worried as to how my breasts will look after the baby is done with them, they were small to begin with I can't imagine what they'll look like after..prpbBly mini pancakes haha
