Should Implants Be Removed Before Pregnancy?

As a pregnant women, there are likely so many thoughts running through your mind before delivery. Will the baby be healthy? Will I be okay? And then there’s the eventual joy of the birth and the bonding that comes with the first breastfeed. If you have breast implants, you may be worrying about the many myths on whether or not you can breastfeed with implants. Also, will pregnancy affect your implants? Should you undergo breast implant removal? . Learn more about how pregnancy can affect your breast implants.

Do Breast Implants Affect Breastfeeding?

When placed correctly, implants are placed between the chest wall and the breast tissue. This helps to prevent any interference with the mammary glands that produce milk. Even during breast augmentation, enough tissue can be left to allow for milk production so a woman can breastfeed her new baby without worry that her implants are negatively affecting her breast feeding experience.

Can Pregnancy Affect the Integrity of Implants?

Pregnancy should not affect the integrity of implants themselves. However, depending on weight gained during pregnancy and the rate at which the weight is gained, there may be a residual effect on the implants. Every woman’s body is different, so there may be slight changes in the appearance of the breasts, but some women have reported a more natural appearance after pregnancy.

Women Have Different Pregnancy Experiences

As mentioned before, every woman is different, so every pregnancy journey will be different. While some women may gain weight slowly and steadily, others may gain weight and/or lose within a short period.  Either way removing your implants before pregnancy should not be a concern. Instead, importance should be placed on practicing healthy habits for both mom and baby during the pregnancy. Eating healthy foods and exercising when comfortable will help maintain weight goals your obstetrician recommends. Staying healthy will work toward maintaining the shape and contour of your chest.

Is a Brow Lift Right For You?⁠

Horizontal forehead wrinkles, often referred to as “worry lines” between your eyebrows, and drooping skin around your eyes and eyelids are all signs of aging that appear in the upper portions of the our face. ⁠

What can you do to treat that area? ⁠

A brow lift is a versatile procedure that can help reduce these wrinkles and fine lines, leaving behind fresher, more youthful-looking skin around the eyes, on the bridge of the nose, and up to the hairline. ⁠

Typically, brow lift procedures yield the best results for patients between the ages of 40 and 65. Younger patients may be good candidates for the procedure if they are genetically predisposed to heavy brows or deep lines in the upper face. ⁠

What to expect: Butt Enhancement 🍑⁠

Butt enhancement will likely take two to three hours. This is largely dependent on the amount of liposuction required. The procedure is often performed in an outpatient facility, allowing patients to return home after spending a few hours in recovery. ⁠

Before undergoing your buttock lift, anesthesia or intravenous sedation will be administered in order to maintain patient comfort throughout the procedure.⁠

🍑 First, the common areas of the body that have enough fat deposits will undergo liposuction. This fat will be removed from areas such as the hips and abdomen. Once this fat is removed, it will be purified and made injectable. ⁠

🍑 Following the purification process, the fat will then be administered to the soft tissues of the buttocks, likely focusing on the upper region for ultimate fullness. ⁠

🍑 The injectable fat will likely fall between 300 cc to 600 cc of fat per buttock. This fat transfer can help achieve the desired perkier appearance of your backside and slimming of your abdomen, hips, and more.⁠
