How Does Breast Augmentation Fit Into a Mom’s Life?

Motherhood is a beautiful thing. I’m so grateful to be living the mommy life. But while the process of becoming a mom made a huge positive impact on me as a whole, it definitely changed my body in ways that I hadn’t expected.

I loved my body before I had a baby and I love my body now, but I do miss some of the youthfulness and confidence I felt pre-pregnancy. 

Many moms consider breast augmentation to help get back to their pre-baby body and reignite their confidence. Undergoing a procedure is a big decision, though, and you may not be sure if the process will realistically fit into your life and all your body’s day to day mom duties.

I’ve heard some of my fellow moms mention the same concerns: How long would they be out of commission? What results would they get? How would life be different after?

I did some digging of my own, and here’s what I learned. 

What are the options?

Some of the most popular types of augmentation are silicone implants, saline implants and fat grafting. Silicone implants come in a teardrop (anatomical) or round shape; saline implants are silicone shells that are filled with saltwater; and fat grafting is a subtler option that uses fat taken from another part of your body. The option you choose depends on your personal preference, body type, and the look you’re going for, and you can even mix and customize procedures to create your own unique size and shape.

How long does recovery take?

Recovery is a step-by-step process. According to Dr. Derek Ford, who specializes in plastic surgery and breast augmentation in Toronto, you can be back on your feet and moving around the same day and back to most types of work in about a week. You’ll need to stay away from heavy lifting for a few more weeks. Your surgeon will clear you for more activities at your follow-up appointments and will give you specific instructions to follow so you can be totally back to normal ASAP.

What will the results be after?

Practices like Dr. Ford’s now offer 3D previews that can show you an in-depth look at what your results may be so you can get a feel for your new look before you commit. It takes some of the guesswork out of your decision and will give you a glimpse into what your post-surgery body will be.

What is life after surgery like?

Once you’re recuperated, you get to go forward with a new bod and new and improved sense of confidence. A study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showed a “very large” improvement of quality of life after breast augmentation. No regrets there.

If you’re one of many moms out there wondering if a breast augmentation makes sense in your life, know you’re not alone. With so many options and new ways to get back on your feet more quickly than ever, it’s definitely possible to fit into your busy mommy life. 

We all deserve to love the bodies we’re in. If plastic surgery can help you reach your body confidence goals, it’s a beautiful thing.
