Will I Be Able To Breast Feed My Child If I Have Had Breast Implants
Usually: Breast augmentation leaves most of the ducts connected to the nipple. Therefore, breast feeding is still possible. When the incision is placed below the breast in the lower breast fold, there is usually not problem. The only time that some ducts get cut during a breast augmentation is with a periareolar incision when the cut is around the areola of the breast. Even then, you should still be ok. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Can you nurse with breast implants? If i get breat implants and then get pregnant, will i still be able to breast feed?

Adopted a three day old baby and i want to be able to feed her breast milk, can I do this without getting pregnant?
Waiting is best: Pregnancy often drastically changes the shape and size of the breast so waiting can often make sense. That way, any undesirable changes in breast size and shape caused by pregnancy can be addressed at the same time. Augmentation may not even be needed if breast size increases enough. Breast augmentation through an incision away from the nipple should not prevent breast feeding, though. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Wait if you can.: With breast reduction there is also a reshaping that gives the breasts a more youthful shape and position. With additional pregnancies the reduction won't be "reversed" but the long term result would not be as good as if you waited until you are done having kids. Other issues- potentially not being able to nurse, nipple numbness, loss of erectile function, wound complications, hematomas, seromas. ...Read more

I am getting a breast augmentation dec 23 of this year. Will it ruin my boobs when I have children someday? Even if i don't breast feed?
No: Breast augmentation when done correctly does not "ruin" your boobs. Your breast will undergo changes as you age and if you have children and breast-feed. If you are looking to have children in the following six months to year, i would probably not recommend you have a breast augmentation. Make sure you discuss your concerns with your board-certified plastic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
