In brief: No
Breast implants can reduce your chances of being able to breastfeed by about 15-20%.
Studies have been done that have shown no silicone being passed into the breast milk in women with silicone gel implants.

In brief: No danger
Barring any contraindications, breast feeding is recommended whether you have breast implants or not.
While breast implants can, in some cases, lead to a decrease in milk volume, there is no change in the milk produced.
