Can u breast feed and have more children having gotten a tummy tuck and breast aug?

Can u breast feed and have more children having gotten a tummy tuck and breast aug?

Yes: Most breast implants are now placed under the chest muscles and do not disrupt the breast tissue so breastfeeding is usually not a problem. If not placed under the muscle, then it depends where the incisions were on the breast. Pregnancy is ok after a tummy tuck but it will expand again and likely not return to the way it looked after the tummy tuck. ...Read more

Can breast implants increase the chances of having breast cancer? My gma had breast cancer so its kinda in the family..

No: Breast implants don't increase your risk for developing breast cancer, but they do make it more difficult to feel a breast lump. They also might make it harder to see an abnormality on mammogram. A breast MRI might be necessary for you, but the radiologist who reads your mammograms will let you know. And you should still do self breast exams! ...Read more

Will a breast lift hold up after breast feeding? If i get a breast lift after i finish breast feeding, what happens if i get pregnant again? Will i need to get another breast lift or will the results of the first breast lift pretty much last through havin

Breast lift: Unfortunately, there is no way to predict how your breasts will hold up through breast feeding after a breast lift. Some women will have their breasts return to normal size and shape while others will need to re-do their lift or add an implant. If you predict breast feeding in the near future, it is better to hold-off on your lift until you are done. ...Read more
