Hi ladies, Just curious if any of you had implants and breastfed. I spoke with my doctor-both plastic and OB, and they said I should have zero problems since I went under the muscle.

I had surgery in 08, thinking I was done having children, but God had another plan!

Any advice? opinions? Personal experiences?

Thanks!

Yes! I've been breastfeeding for 3m+ after implants. I was worried because I had over the muscle, with a periareolar incision and some nerve damage 7 years ago. But I actually didn't have problems getting my milk to come in, and so far so good.

I think the place of incision is the most important thing as far as BF. Crease being best, areola worst. But I'm an example of how it can still work, even with the worst case scenario.

Good luck and congratulations.

I don't have any experience with it, but I know of a website I can pass along about breastfeeding after breast surgeries: BFAR - Breastfeeding After Breast and Nipple Surgeries
