Yes, You Can Breastfeed Even With Breast Implants!

A lot of women delay having breast augmentation because they think it will prevent them from breastfeeding. Good thing today’s surgical techniques are advanced enough to avoid these issues!

Implants are usually placed behind the milk glands or under the chest muscles, which doesn’t affect milk supply. However, the risk that it affects your breastfeeding depends on where the incision is created. If it’s around your areola, it may affect your milk supply. Having your breast implants over the pectoral muscle can also affect your breastfeeding. But if it’s in your inframammary fold (the crease under your breast) or your armpit, you should not have a problem. 

Think implants will make breast milk unsafe for babies? There’s nothing to worry about as trace amounts of silicone aren’t harmful to your baby. So go get that breast augmentation you’ve always wanted!
