BA after weaning?
Hey there - I've heard many different recommendations from surgeons regarding how long to wait after weaning to have a breast augmentation, ranging from 2 months to 6 months, to "whenever you're completely dry". First I wanted to ask what your recommendation is for this. Second, can you tell me what the risk is to getting a breast augmentation too soon after weaning?
I weaned in January and my breasts now seem to be completely deflated. They are actually smaller and more "squishy" than my pre-pregnancy size already! I have not been leaking whatsoever, but if I try to get milk out, I can get a few drops. I have read that it can take up to a year or more for your breasts to completely "dry up" after breastfeeding. So should I have to wait an entire year? I just don't feel like my breasts will be changing much more (if at all, since they are already as deflated as it gets) and I'm not sure I understand what harm it will do to have the breast augmentation say, in April.
Thanks in advance for your help!
