I am almost 36 weeks pregnant and am able to squeeze out a lot of colostrum. I got my breast implants over 6 years ago and have not had any children since. I know that most women are able to breastfeed after implants, but some are not.

Does anyone know if the fact that I have colostrum means that I will likely be capable of bf'ing???

Thanks a ton in advance!!

I don't have any experience personally, but here is some info that may be helpful:

Can I continue to breastfeed if…? Beauty/Recreation/Misc. : KellyMom

I would venture a guess that producing colostrum would mean that you'd be able to produce milk later on. Good luck!

It is a good sign but it's not something you will know until you are there. I would line up a good lactation consultant who is familiar with implants to help you and monitor your supply for the first few weeks. It depends on where they placed the implants, where the incision site is, and if they severed any ducts.
