Elective surgery should be postponed in the postpartum period for at least 6-9 months or until 3 months post-cessation of breastfeeding. This will allow for a normalization of hormones and ultimately a return to a stable baseline.

As always, discuss your concerns with your board certified plastic surgeon (ABPS).

I would suggest waiting until breastfeeding is done, the swelling has subsided and you notice that your breasts, unfortunately, have shrunk.
