BREAST IMPLANT: Your breast implant will not affect your breast feeding. Why you have breast pain is for you to be examined by md.

Not risky: Implants routinely show folds on mri. This is not abnormal and not a cause for pain during breastfeeding. If you are just beginning breastfeeding, pain is normal. If pain is a new symptom, you should see your doctor. If your MRI was done without a contrast injection the examination does not rule out infection or massses in the breast.
