I'm planning to have breast augmentation in the near future and also planning to get pregnant very soon. Is it better to wait to get the breast implants until after I give birth and breast feed the baby? If I have the augmentation now, are my breasts likely to get too large during and after pregnancy? Are they likely to change considerably from the pregnancy (stretch marks on the skin, sagging, etc.)? I also have some excess skin on my breasts after a substantial weight loss. Do you think I will ultimately achieve better results if I put off having the procedure done until after I have the baby?
If you are going to get pregnant soon, then definitely wait. Your breasts may change in size and the implant size you choose then may be wrong. Also you may develop sag, and the decision to do or not do a lift may also be wrong. Hope this helps.
