Will Pregnancy Ruin my Breast Implants?

Q:  I had breast enlargement surgery 15 months ago, I am pregnant again and am wondering if  this will ruin my breast implants? I had the implant under the muscle but I am worried I will regain that saggy look again

A:  It is tough to gauge the effect of pregnancy on the appearance of your breasts.  Since the implants were placed under the muscle, I do not anticipate them moving as a result of the pregnancy.  Your own breast tissue will likely be affected by pregnancy hormones, but it is impossible to know what that effect will be at this stage.  At this point I would advise focusing on your pregnancy and new baby.  If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts after your pregnancy (and after breastfeeding if you choose to do so), consult with your plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
