Although being a new mother is considered as one of the greatest joys in a woman’s life, the physical trauma of childbirth and breastfeeding may also have profound repercussions. New mothers who visit us for the first time here at our Worcester plastic surgery practice often complain about sagging breasts.
Breast deflation post-pregnancy is often a result of its increase in size during pregnancy and childbirth. This has largely to do with weight gain (as a woman’s appetite increases) and breast enlargement as a means of preparing the woman’s body for breastfeeding. Many women find themselves with enlarged breasts during pregnancy and childbirth only to return back to its original size and volume after breastfeeding. To make matters worse, their breasts have become less shapely and have lost its perkiness.
Good Thing There’s a Breast Lift!
Although a shift to a healthy diet and regular exercise can help a post-childbirth woman deal with excess weight gain and sagging skin, many women find that such combination doesn’t work in lifting and tightening sagging breasts. Good thing there’s a breast lift procedure to help restore your original breast shape and perkiness!
A breast lift following pregnancy can be as conservative (the procedure may simply restore the breast to its proper position and tighten the skin around it) or as liberal ( you can choose to have implants to increase breast size and volume) as you like.
