If you have breast implants, can you still breast feed your baby? Does it make your breasts look weird?

In brief: Yes but be informed

It is very safe but there are some concerns that I have addressed in the video link below.

In brief: You can try

Some women with or without breast implants are not able to produce enough milk to exclusively breast feed.
Women with breast implants can try breast feeding; the surgery may or may not change their ability to produce enough milk, so i advise all my patients that they may have to supplement. This should not affect the overall results of how your breasts look after augmentation.

In brief: Yes

Breast implants themselves do not have a measurable effect on breastfeeding.
How your breasts look during pregnancy is a matter of personal opinion, but pregnancy will stretch the skin and soft tissue, which does not always return to what it was before.

In brief: Usually yes

Breast implants can reduce your chances of being able to breastfeed by about 15-20%.
Pregnancy and breast feeding can affect the appearance of your breasts with implants just as they can be affected if you did not have implants.
