In brief: No evidence
There is no evidence that shows that breast feeding a child when you have silicone implants in place, will cause any problems whatsoever to your child.
This is an incredibly common procedure world-wide and you should not be concerned about this as a problem. You should discuss other more common potential problems with your plastic surgeon prior to having this procedure done.

Silicone does not get absorbed y your body's tissues or your milk ducts.
Studies have been done on breast milk in patients with silicone breast implants and they have never been able to detect traces of silicone in the breast milk even in patients whose implants were ruptured.

In brief: Don't read junk sci
While there are many people who have published articles about this, the truth is that formula often contains hundreds of times the amount of silicone than the breast milk of women with silicone breast implants.
So pease do not be concerned about this.
