Every year, Dr. Costanzo of Westlake Village sees hundreds of women who are frustrated with their deflated breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding have taken their toll on their figure. If you want to get back to your “old self” and regain the self-confidence you’ve lost, you might be wondering how soon after pregnancy you’re able to see Dr. Costanzo for breast augmentation.

You’ve come to the right place! Westlake Village’s moms deserve a surgeon who truly cares about their cosmetic goals. Dr. Costanzo has over 33 years of plastic surgery experience and has performed more than 5,000 breast augmentations alone! With his care, expertise, and skill, you can be sure that Dr. Costanzo will help you achieve the look you’re desiring.

Before you come in for your free breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Costanzo, there are some general guidelines to consider in order to know when it is safe to move forward with your surgery. Westlake Village moms should:

• Wait to schedule an initial consultation until at least 1 months after your breast milk has depleted.

If you’re interested in pursuing a breast augmentation with Dr. Costanzo, be sure to wait at least 1 month until AFTER your breast milk has depleted before calling to schedule your initial consultation. This wait is necessary in order to allow patients’ breasts to return to their natural size and shape once there is no more breast milk causing them to be inflated. Dr. Costanzo can then accurately recommend the best shape, size, and type of breast implants that will provide the results each patient desires.

• Before you consider a breast augmentation, be sure you are done having children.

While moms can have breast augmentation and then successfully have children afterward, Dr. Costanzo wants each woman he performs plastic surgery for to enjoy their results for years to come. Pregnancy after breast augmentation is not dangerous to moms or their unborn children, but if you choose to have more children after your breast augmentation, your results will be negated, and you’ll likely need a revision surgery to regain your ideal shape. Dr. Constanzo wants all of his patients to have beautiful, long-lasting results, which is why he recommends that they are done having children before coming in for their procedure.

Additionally, women who enjoy breastfeeding may not be able to do so after breast augmentation, as some incisions cut through milk ducts. If you believe there is a chance you could have a future pregnancy after your breast augmentation, be sure to talk to Dr. Costanzo about it during your initial consultation. He will be able to offer you different incision options that will not harm milk ducts and enable you to breastfeed in the future.
