Do Breast Implants Prevent Nursing
Can you nurse with breast implants? If i get breat implants and then get pregnant, will i still be able to breast feed?
You can but risks?: The ability to nurse depends on whether the ductal system was interrupted or nerve supply to the nipple may have been compromised. However, that is usually rare, and in most instances, women with a straightforward breast aug particularly if performed through the crease incision, are able to nurse. The next question is: if you can, should you? That is more difficult and there is great controversy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Got 1st breast implants in '79. Encapsulation, hardness. Replaced 9 yrs ago. Encap/hardness returned immediately. Dr. Said results would probably be the same w/a 3rd surgery. Is this necessarily true?
Possibly: A recurrent capsular contracture might be reduced by changing the pocket (ie-from beneath the breast to beneath the muscle) or by adding a piece of allograft (ie alloderm). The risk of a recurrence is higher if previous capsular contracture has recurred, but it is not a given. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

A significant number of women are unhappy with the way their breasts sag over time, especially with the weight of implants. If this occurs, surgery would be required to reposition the breasts and implants higher on the chest wall, with or without removing or changing the implants. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Implants issues: Breast implants are the best surgical solution we have for achieving breast enhancement or augmentation; however, they are not "living tissue" and therefore, as any medical device, they have a "shelf life" and will all "wear out" with time. Saline implants typically last about 10 years, while most silicone gel implants last about 20 years. They all have to be changed out in time when they rupture. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
