Breast Augmentation While Breast-feeding

After giving multiple births, many women are eager to improve their physical appearance and shine again with their body contour. One of the most sought-after procedure to achieve this is the breast augmentation with breast implants.

Many of those women miss the feeling of being comfortable in their own bodies so much, that they even consider going under breast augmentation and breast implants procedure while they are still breast-feeding. Some plastic surgeons would recommend this as a good choice, but some would disagree.

Dr. Kevin Tehrani, a top New York plastic surgeon with offices in two locations – Manhattan and Long Island, was asked by a RealSelf user who has recently become a mom for the second time, if breast augmentation while breast-feeding is a good idea.


Is breast augmentation while I’m still breast-feeding a smart move?

“Hello I just had a baby 3 weeks ago and I’m currently breast-feeding. I always wanted my breast done and since this is my second and last child, I want to go forward with my plans and get one, and since I was looking into having breast augmentation surgery around January/February of next year. My question is when should I stop breastfeeding and when should I have a consultation. Thank you.”, a RealSelf user asked.

Dr. Tehrani gladly answered this breast augmentation question

“Congratulations on having your baby. You should wait 2 to 3 months after stopping breast-feeding prior to having your breast augmentation procedure. You should seek a board certified plastic surgeon with expertise in this area in advance to discuss your options and reserve time for proper sizing measurement closer to the date of the surgery. Best of luck.”, Aristocrat’s board-certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S explained.
