In the vast majority of cases, breast augmentation will not interfere with your ability to breastfeed in the future. It is important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure that you avoid damage to the milk ducts in your breasts. Usually, breast implants are placed behind the breast glands to avoid interference with breastfeeding.
Your breast augmentation incision location is another important factor to consider. If you choose to have your breast implants placed through incisions under the breastfold, or in your armpit, the risk of damaging your milk ducts is greatly reduced. The one incision type that can pose problems is the periareolar incision, which is located directly beneath the areola.
If you are concerned that breast implants could affect breastfeeding in the future, we encourage you to consult one of our Marietta plastic surgeons. We can discuss in detail the various methods we use to reduce your risk of breastfeeding problems, and what to expect from the procedure in general.
