Survey results recently published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States is breast augmentation. A great many Los Angeles residents certainly enjoy this procedure, and, consequently, Los Angeles houses some of the most gifted plastic surgeons in the country, including Dr. Mark Youssef at YOUnique Cosmetic Surgery.

 

Still, women interested in getting breast implants may worry about the effect the surgery could have on their ability to breastfeed in the future. While their concerns are not unfounded, there are particular breast augmentation surgeries that are more compatible with women who may have children and want to breastfeed.

 

Dr. Youssef specializes in several types of breast augmentation surgery in Los Angeles, including procedures that are perfect for women who plan to nurse their babies.

 

For women who may want to breastfeed at some point, we suggest opting for a breast augmentation surgery that will have little effect on the nerves in and around the nipple, as nipple sensitivity is integral for effectively breastfeeding. These women will also want to select a breast augmentation surgery that will not block milk ducts from their nipple. Dr. Youssef offers breast implant options that steer clear of the nipple and areola, giving women a variety of choices based on their unique needs and desires.

 

The first of these options is the inframammary fold incision method, in which the cut is made along the crease under the breast, and the implant bypasses the milk duct. The transaxillary incision method is also a viable option for prospective mothers, as the cut is made in the fold of the armpit. Another breast augmentation possibility is the TUBA incision, which is made on the rim of the belly button. These three breast augmentation options are not only ideal for women who want to be able to breastfeed, but will also help them to achieve their desired look.

 

With these breast augmentation options available in Beverly Hills, you do not have to compromise your physical allure for the ability to breastfeed. Do what makes you feel your absolute best, and never settle for anything less!
