The breasts experience many changes after pregnancy, especially when women breastfeed. It's common for the breasts to become larger during pregnancy and breastfeeding. After hormone levels return to normal, baby weight is lost, and breastfeeding stops, the breasts can become deflated and sag.
Breast augmentation can help restore volume to the breasts after pregnancy, making the breasts look more youthful and often times even better than they looked before pregnancy.
Although breast augmentation can make the breasts look fuller and shapelier, it's important to note that it will not significantly lift sagging breasts. Breast lift surgery is better suited for treating sagging breasts and may be combined with augmentation.

There are several factors to consider when trying to decide on the timing of breast augmentation after pregnancy. Some of these factors include:
