Have you always wanted to undergo breast augmentation surgery, but you’re nervous you won’t be able to breastfeed your future children?

It turns out that the risk of not being able to breastfeed after breast augmentation is a lot lower than you may think. Take a look at the information you need to know about breast augmentation and breastfeeding, including if the surgery will impact your ability to breastfeed.

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.

Candidates for Breast Augmentation Surgery

While breast augmentation surgery doesn’t always affect a candidate’s future ability to breastfeed, we do recommend women who plan on having children in the immediate future to discuss this with Dr. Keusch.

Otherwise, the best candidates for breast augmentation surgery are:

  • Healthy nonsmokers who aren’t taking blood-thinning medications
  • Candidates who are unhappy with the size or shape of their breasts
  • Individuals who feel that they have asymmetrical breasts
