How long to wait for Breast Reduction Surgery After Pregnancy?

How long after giving birth should I wait before undergoing breast reduction surgery?

Breast Reduction After Pregnancy Timing

Thanks for your question - In addition to needing to lose the baby weight, stop breast feeding and wait for skin to tighten you also need to consider the social changes in your life. Many times people considering surgery forget that surgery creates a big change temporarily in your life. For breast reduction this can mean that you may not be able to pick up your little one for a month or so and may need additional help around the house. Be sure to find a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss ALL of the implications of moving forward with surgery. I hope this helps.
