The short answer: YES!
85% of patients with at least 1 pregnancy noticed adverse changes in their breast shape following pregnancy. Nearly half (49%) of primary augmentation patients are women dissatisfied with their breast appearance after having children.
Pregnancy causes major changes to a woman’s body, and breasts, with or without implants. It is impossible to say how much pregnancy will change your overall breast appearance, but we guarantee one thing - they will NOT get prettier. It’s an important distinction to note that pregnancy does not ruin or damage the actual breast implant, and therefore there is no warranty for pregnancy. Your body has changed around the implant, as a result of the weight fluctuation and hormones of pregnancy. Many women will require larger implants and/or a lift after pregnancy to improve their breast appearance. Nipples and areolas frequently become larger and darker as well. As Dr. Feldman discussed at your consult, less natural implant style selection can increase the likelihood of needing additional surgery with life events like pregnancy, and therefore, we always recommend woman who anticipate having children, select more conservative implant styles.
