Breastfeeding After a Breast Augmentation

Some women wanting to undergo breast augmentation in Orange County may be somewhat unsure, because they have heard that the procedure will prevent them from breastfeeding. Contrary to that belief, breast implants do not interfere with the milk ducts in any way, therefore a woman can breastfeed after having a breast augmentation.

If you are contemplating breast augmentation, but are concerned because of that myth, there’s no need to be alarmed, because there is no truth to it. So if you’d like to have kids in the future, but want to enhance your appearance now, it’s possible to do so.

Dr. Kyle Song of Song Plastic Surgery in Irvine, California serves the greater Orange County area and specializes in cosmetic procedures like breast augmentation. Dr. Song understands that women not only want to look their best, but also want to be able to bond with their babies when the time comes. That’s why he uses the most advanced technology, to ensure that the procedure won’t interfere with breastfeeding.

But what gave rise to this belief and is there any truth to it at all?

The belief came about because of complaints by some mothers that they found it difficult to breastfeed after breast augmentation. However, that problem arose because of where the incision was made during surgery, and not because of the implants.

When incisions are made on or around the areola, then this often makes breast feeding difficult, but not impossible. However if the surgeon makes the incisions on the breast crease or under the armpits, it does not create any difficulty.

Be sure to consult with your plastic surgeon to discuss these and other concerns before undergoing breast augmentation. He will then be able to confirm where the incisions will be placed.
