I asked this very question when I had my first consultation w/ Dr. Pousti. I was told everyone body reacts differently to weight loss/weight gain. Obviously when your pregnant your breast do become larger, especially when your milk comes in? but I have had friends who have had implants for years, nursed their children and still have beautiful breast after. Hope this helps!
