Many women are concerned that getting breast implants can affect their pregnancy and future ability to breastfeed. Luckily, plastic surgery does not hurt your chances of getting pregnant or hurt your baby while you are pregnant. If you are concerned about breastfeeding with breast implants, it’s very important that you let Dr. Rast know about those concerns.
Breastfeeding After Breast Implants
For women who have received a breast augmentation, there is some risk that they will not be able to breastfeed. The risk is that during the breast implant procedure, the milk ducts may be disrupted.
By being open and talking with Dr. Rast about your breastfeeding plans, he can create a personalized surgical plan to avoid disruption of the milk ducts. By avoiding the milk ducts during surgery, your likelihood of breastfeeding is increased!
Pregnancy & Your Breast Implants
For both women with and without augmented breasts, pregnancy causes significant changes in the body. The breasts’ shape, fullness, or size may change. Some women even get a “touch-up” of their augmentation after pregnancy!
