Can I Breastfeed After a Breast Augmentation?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


The vast majority of women who undergo a breast augmentation will have no problems breastfeeding. Some women experience problems nursing with or without implants. However, the Denver plastic surgeons at Grossman Plastic Surgery find that this is usually not a concern.

Now, it still might be appropriate to delay a breast augmentation until after pregnancy is children are in your plans. Pregnancy and nursing can have significant negative effects on the appearance of your breasts, and you might lose some of the results you saw from your augmentation after pregnancy.

Among the important information to know is that your choice of saline vs. silicone breast implants won’t impact your ability to breastfeed. And the material you choose will not affect the safety of breast milk, either.

It remains the case that breast augmentation is significant surgery in a sensitive region of the body. A poorly performed breast augmentation can affect nipple sensitivity, which can make breastfeeding more difficult.
