Post-Breastfeeding Breast Augmentation: Why Now is the Time to Treat Yourself to a Mommy Makeover


It’s been six months since you breastfed your baby. You’ve also lost some of your pregnancy weight. You’re excited that you can finally wear your pre-baby clothes again. There’s just one issue. You’ve lost your once full, perky breasts. Now, they’re just deflated.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can change the shape and size of your breasts, especially after having multiple pregnancies. Thankfully, mothers these days don’t have to look frumpy. By getting a mommy makeover, you can restore your pre-baby body, especially your perky breasts.

As you already know, a mommy makeover involves a series of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can enhance your figure and boost your confidence. One of the procedures involved is a breast augmentation, which can increase the size of your breasts and add volume to them.

In considering this procedure, you might be wondering when to get a post-breastfeeding breast augmentation. While there is no wrong time to get it, there are good reasons to get this procedure in the cold season.  Here are just three of them:

  1. Stylish Concealment

Part of your healing after surgery is to wear compression garments to minimize swellings and to allow the breast implants to settle in their natural positions. By getting the surgery in the winter, you conceal the compression garments stylishly. Otherwise, you’ll find it uncomfortable to wear compression garments in the summer because of the heat. You also risk exposing the garments, which many women find embarrassing.

  1. Cool Weather

It’s common knowledge that the sun’s ultraviolet rays are damaging to the skin, especially skin that’s recovering from a surgery. Even if you wear clothes that will conceal the bust area, the sun’s rays can still penetrate. The winter is the best time as the sun is less harsh or barely shining at all, allowing the scars to heal properly.

  1. Cozy Recovery

The frigid weather is the perfect excuse to stay indoors and allow your body to heal properly. You don’t have to worry about taking your kids to baseball games or summer camps, as you would during the summer. You also don’t have to feel guilty about turning down invitations for garden parties or barbecue events. Indeed, getting the surgery in the winter allows you to spend most of your days inside your home without feeling like a recluse.

As you can see, it’s certainly advantageous to get a mommy makeover in the winter months. If you haven’t scheduled your surgery yet or would like to learn more about a breast augmentation, request a consultation with Dr. Ben Lee.
