Effect of Pregnancy on Breasts
A woman’s breasts undergo a myriad of changes during pregnancy and after breastfeeding.
In the early stages of pregnancy, a woman’s breasts usually become enlarged due to increased hormone levels – a physical trait that is often celebrated in women who have lived life with smaller breasts. As the woman moves through pregnancy, the breasts begin to prepare for nursing, often growing even larger (and uncomfortable) to accommodate for milk.
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts will change yet again. While some women maintain large breasts, many find that their once voluptuous breasts have begun to shrink, sag and lose that perky appearance. This can add to postpartum depression and make some moms wish they had their larger breasts back.
Breast augmentation in Aurora, Colorado using saline or silicone implants is one way to restore size to post-pregnancy breasts. It’s important to remember that breast implants will not correct breast sagging. A breast lift in Aurora is often combined with implants to both lift the breasts and increase the overall size.
