  • Experienced sagging.
  • Have loose skin and thin tissue.

Whether you are planning to have Austin breast augmentation surgery or you have had the surgery and want to breastfeed in the future, you may be wondering how the procedure can impact your options. Learn more from Meridian.

Breast Augmentation After Breastfeeding

If you have finished having children and are ready to rejuvenate your body, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery or a complete mommy makeover.

Breastfeeding in the past does not affect your ability to have an augmentation procedure in the future. Dr. Tjelmeland will meet with you in an initial consultation to discuss the goals you are trying to accomplish, outline a plan for your surgery, and then work with diligence, skill, and an artistic eye to provide the most attractive results possible.

Austin Patients and Breast Augmentation Before Breastfeeding

If you are planning to become pregnant and breastfeed in the near future, Dr. Tjelmeland may recommend delaying breast augmentation surgery. However, if these experiences are far in the future, having a breast augmentation procedure shouldn’t affect your ability to breastfeed.

During the surgery, Dr. Tjelmeland places implants in a way that increases volume. He may also revise the shape of the breasts for greater symmetry and beauty. The surgical process does not disturb the ducts responsible for breastfeeding. You can have augmentation and breast implants and still provide milk for your baby.

Dr. Tjelmeland can review your specific needs and concerns in an initial consultation at Meridian Plastic Surgery. Schedule your appointment today to get answers to your questions and explore the procedure in more detail.
