In brief: Breast feeding

Most women are able to breast feed after implants, but that can't be guaranteed.

In brief: 80% Can

There is typically no contraindication with breast feeding after implant surgery.
However, 10 -15% of woman may have difficulty with milk production. This statistic may be higher in woman who have had incisions around the nipple.

In brief: Majority

The majority of patients who undergo breast augmentation surgery are able to breast-feed successfully; the exact percentage of “diminished ability” is hard to determine given that some ladies are not able to breast-feed even without having had breast surgery in the past.

In brief: Most can

Depends on the position of the implant (above vs.
Below the muscle) and whether you need lifting in addition to the implant. Make sure you ask your surgeon about your particular chances depending on what procedure you will undergo.
