Breast Volume Options After Breast Feeding

Explore our options to restore Breast Volume after Breast Feeding

The shape and size of your breast change both before and after breastfeeding.  To prepare your body for nursing, your breast tissue and milk producing glands enlarge and become fuller. When you are finished breast feeding your breast shrink back down to their previous size. This sometimes leads to breasts appearing droopy and less full.   We have two options for our patients to consider Fat Grafting and Breast Augmentation with Implants.

Fat Grafting: Fat grafting also called fat transferis when you remove fat from one area of the body using low pressure liposuction into another are of the body.  This is an option for patients which often gives a more natural softer look.


Procedure: A fluid is injected into the area of the body to be treated with liposuction which makes it easier to remove the fat cells and lessens the bleeding.  The fat is removed through a suction device and then isolated and cleaned and ready for injection into the breast area until a desired look is achieved.


Recovery:  After the procedure the area will be bandaged and covered in compression garments.  The compression garments are to help with swelling and provide support. Bruising, soreness, and swelling are common in the areas treated with liposuction.



Implants: Breast Augmentation is one of the most common procedures done to enlarge or change the shape of a women’s breast.  


Procedure: For a breast augmentation the surgeon will make an incision in one of three places in the crease under the breast, under the arm, or around the nipple.  After the incision is made, the breast tissue is separated from the muscles and tissue of your chest to create a pocket. The implant is put into the pocket once in place the incision is closed up by the surgeon.


Recovery: After surgery soreness and swelling is expected.  Scars will fade overtime.  Normally a compression bra is given for support and positioning of the implants. Avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks.
