Implants and Breast Feeding

Do implants affect breast feeding?

Generally speaking, women who have breast augmentations do not experience breast feeding difficulties. The implant is usually placed under the chest wall muscle, separating it from the milk producing lobules. However, if you opt for an augmentation by periariolar incision (around the nipple), there is a chance that some of the milk ducts may be severed, affecting the amount of milk expelled from the nipple during nursing. If you have any queries about breast implants and the procedure, you should talk to your surgeon.
