Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Serving Areas Near Houston & Sugar Land, TX

After delivery of your baby, it’s natural to want to get your pre-pregnancy body back, or to even seek a better one, but how soon is too soon?  Generally the guidelines are to postpone breast augmentation and breast lift until after you’re finished having children.  Beyond that, you should wait until you’ve finished breast feeding for at least three months, and ideally six months to make sure your breasts have stabilized and are no longer producing milk.  It’s best to wait until your body returns to its pre-pregnancy weight, and that you can maintain that weight without extremes in dieting or exercise.  However, if weight is an issue for you, this can be discussed with your plastic surgeon.  Breast augmentation will change the size of your breasts, and the lift will help combat the effects of gravity (and previous breast feeding) to eliminate sagging breasts.  Houston’s Michael Eisemann, M.D. is a triple board certified plastic surgeon with over 30 years of experience with breast surgery, and he has assisted many moms recreate their pre-pregnancy bodies.
