I am 30 years old; 6’1″ 168lbs. Active lifestyle (play basketball and like to lift weights to stay toned). Do not drink or smoke, no history of medical conditions. I have one child and am thinking of having one more, but my breast are a little dropped due to breast feeding. I am a 36 B (small B). What type of breast augmentation is recommended given some of my background and lifestyle? Should I wait until after I have my second child?

    Thank you for your question. If pregnancy has caused your breasts to become smaller and sag, and you are certain you are having another child in the near future I would wait until you are finished having children before having breast augmentation. It would be ashame to have your breast augmentation and then require a second procedure to correct post pregnancy changes.

    It is optimal to wait until after you have your second child and be done with breast-feeding. After 6 months you can consider having a breast augmentation. This should be done in the hands of a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is an expert in breast surgery.

    Dear Friend, A majority of the 320,000+ women in America who undergo breast augmentation each year have not had children, so the timing is really not an issue in this regard. You are best off coming for a consultation with a surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeon to review your options. Most commonly, a silicone implant placed under the breast and muscle is the most common option and does not interfere with future breast feeding.
    I hope this has been helpful.
