Breast Augmentation and Breastfeeding: What You Need to Know
Most women who undergo breast augmentation surgery won’t experience an impact on their breastfeeding capabilities. So if you want to increase your bust size and you’re planning on having children in the future, breast augmentation surgery can still be an option for you.
That’s not to say there are no risks associated with breast augmentation and breastfeeding. If your procedure requires Dr. Keusch to make incisions around your areolas (usually done to hide surgical scarring), you may experience some loss of sensation. This sensation could impact your nipple’s ability to respond to the letdown reflex, which is essential for creating an uninterrupted milk supply.
It’s a good idea to let Dr. Keusch know if you plan on having children in the future. That way, she can discuss your options with your goals in mind.
