4. Can I still breast feed after breast augmentation?
The majority of women can breast feed after having implants. The ability to breast feed is affected by the choice of incision site. An incision in the crease under the breasts doesn’t go through any breast tissue. The tissue is lifted up and the implant is placed underneath. A peri-areolar incision (next to the areola) does go through the breast tissue, which can affect breast feeding more. Just having implants makes it difficult for one in five to breast-feed even if the tissue is left intact.
