Breast Enhancement Before Having Children? Dr. John Roach Helps Tampa, FL, Patients Decide
Breast enhancement surgery is available to women in the Tampa, FL, area from a highly skilled breast surgeon at the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. John Roach founded the Center after graduating with honors from medical school and completing seven years of intensive training in general, plastic, and reconstructive surgery with dozens of renowned surgeons. In addition to his impressive education and training, Dr. Roach emphasizes a unique holistic approach to cosmetic surgery in recognition that a woman’s appearance is closely tied to her well-being. Countless Florida women have relied on him to perform their surgeries, and you, too, can entrust your breast enhancement to Dr. Roach.
In accordance with his holistic philosophy, Dr. Roach meets with each patient to discuss her surgical goals and perceptions in depth. During this meeting, many women ask whether it is advisable to wait until after having children before undergoing breast enhancement surgery. When making this personal decision, Dr. Roach suggests that women keep in mind the following considerations:
- Studies show that breast implants have no impact on a woman’s fertility or the health of her baby.
- Although most women are able to breastfeed following a breast enhancement procedure, breast implants do increase the chance that a woman will be unable to breastfeed.
- Pregnancy can affect the results of breast enhancement surgery, so further surgery may be required after childbirth to restore the initial results.
In addition, a woman should consider the timing of when she plans to have children. In general, if she would like to have a child in the immediate future — within the next year or so — she may wish to postpone her breast enhancement surgery until after she has finished breastfeeding.
During your personal consultation with Dr. Roach at his center near Tampa, FL, he will discuss these and other factors to help guide your decision regarding the timing of your breast enhancement surgery.
