Generally, most women who get either breast implant type are able to breastfeed. You shouldn’t get breast implants if you are currently breastfeeding or pregnant, but once you have healed completely from the procedure, breast implants rarely interfere with breastfeeding.
Because breast augmentation is a surgical procedure, there is a slight risk that a surgical incision could prevent you from breastfeeding, but this happens only rarely. Some women are unable to breastfeed anyway.
If you want breast implants but are concerned about how the procedure will impact any future pregnancies, we encourage you to schedule a free consultation to discuss your options with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole.
Breast augmentation and breast implants do not interfere with pregnancy and, in the majority of cases, do not prevent breastfeeding; however, the physical changes of pregnancy can alter your breast augmentation results, so you may want to postpone the procedure if you are currently planning to become pregnant.
The right time for breast implants is different for everyone. We’ll help you determine if having the procedure now is the best thing for your results and future pregnancies.
