 Is Breast Feeding Appropriate After Having a Breast Augmentation?

Whether or not one can engage in breast feeding after a breast augmentation is one of the most commonly asked questions for patients considering the procedure. The basic answer is YES.  It is very unlikely that a breast augmentation will interfere with your ability to breast feed.  The reason is that even if a periareolar or inframammary incision is used, it is unlikely that the ducts from the milk glands will be cut.

It is important to know that approximately 10% of all women will have trouble breastfeeding, so if you have trouble breast feeding, it is probably NOT due to having had a breast augmentation.

What About Breast Feeding After A Breast Lift?

The answer can be a bit more complicated with an associated breast lift.  A donut mastopexy, because it is just removing skin and sliding the nipple areolar complex upwards, is very, very unlikely to interfere with breastfeeding.

The vertical mastopexy, because it is re-arranging the breast architecture, has some small probability of interfering with breastfeeding but I think this is fairly unlikely as well.
