How soon is safe to get pregnant?

Hello :)

I understand that no matter how long after a BA, there is a chance my breasts won't look the same after a pregnancy but what is the absolute earliest you think would be safe for me to get pregnant post op? Thank you

  • Great question and there is no right answer. Everyone always told me “there’s no good time to get pregnant” related to when in my career and there’s truth in that.  Best answer I can give you is once your initial swelling goes down—so at least 6 weeks.  Swollen breasts are often the first way to tell you’re pregnant so trying to avoid stretch marks, etc, wait for the surgery swelling to go down. I had a pregnancy after my aug and after nursing mine sit a little lower than I would like. But not enough to fix them (for now)!!  Good luck. 


    As always – I would be so honored to see you at my offices in Raleigh, NC!
