If you are planning to have children and are also interested in enhancing breast size and appearance with breast augmentation, you're probably wondering how the procedure can affect the course of a pregnancy and your ability to breastfeed. You may also be wondering how you should time breast augmentation – should you wait until after having children or have the breast augmentation now?

You may want to consider:

  • Breast augmentation does not interfere with the ability to become pregnant or with the course of pregnancy.
  • Breast implants won't interfere with the breast changes that occur during pregnancy.
  • The vast majority of patients have found breast augmentation does not interfere with their ability to breastfeed, but you should discuss the risk with Dr. Chatson.
  • If you plan to become pregnant soon, you may want to wait to have the procedure because the physical changes of pregnancy can alter your results by stretching the breast tissue.

The best way to discuss these concerns and get answers relevant to your unique situation is to schedule a consultation with experienced plastic surgeon Dr. George Chatson. You and Dr. Chatson can discuss your pregnancy plans and the factors that go into deciding if breast augmentation is right for you.

If you're interested in breast augmentation in Nashua, New Hampshire, please contact George P. Chatson, M.D., to schedule a consultation to discuss whether breast augmentation can achieve your breast goals and if it's the right time for you.
