I want to get a breast augmentation, but I still don’t have children… Does surgery affects breast feeding?

Breast augmentation is the most request aesthetic plastic surgery procedure today. If you are considering having children, don’t be afraid on going on with surgery as it is very well demonstrated that breast augmentation DOESN’T AFFECT the process of breast feeding. The implant can be placed in 3 anatomical planes: subglandular, which is just below the gland; subfascial, that is a space between the fascia that covers the pectoralis major muscle, and the muscle itself; or retromuscular, where the implant lies between the pectoralis major and minor muscle. You should consult your plastic surgeon to determine which plane is the one that benefits you the most.

In no case the implant is placed in the gland, nor it needs to be cut off (except for a small cut to get to the plane desired) Hence, your breast is completely funtional, therefore, after pregnancy, you can breast feed normally. If you are worried about the quality of the milk, it has been studied and demonstrated that implant placement doesn’t affect the quality of the milk, and silicone isn’t transfered to it, so… if you were considering getting implants, and fear of not being capable of breast feeding had you on hold… FORGET ABOUT IT AND GO FOR IT!
