Can I breastfeed after breast surgery?

When the time comes for motherhood, a common doubt arises: can I breastfeed after breast surgery? The answer is crucial for new mothers who do not want to give up the benefits of breastfeeding for their children. 

Can the presence of breast implants compromise the natural function of breastfeeding?

The presence of breast implants does not affect the ability to breastfeed, but may depend on various factors related to breast augmentation surgery (breast augmentation). Here are some things to consider:

  • Type of incision: If the incision is made in a place that does not damage the milk ducts or nerves associated with milk production, it is less likely that lactation is affected. Incisions under the breast (inframammary) or along the edge of the areola may present a greater risk of damaging important lactation structures than incisions made in other areas, such as the armpit (transaxillary).
  • Implant placement: implants placed under the pectoralis muscle (sub-muscular) tend to interfere less with the glandular tissue of the breast, than implants placed under the breast tissue but above the muscle (supra-muscular).
  • Nerve damage: If the nerves that stimulate milk production are damaged during surgery, this can affect the ability to breastfeed.
  • Damage to milk ducts: If surgery damages the milk ducts, this can reduce the amount of milk that can be produced or transported to the nipple.
  • Reasons for surgery: If breast augmentation surgery was performed to correct a lack of breast tissue development (breast hypoplasia), the woman may already have a limited capacity to produce milk.

In many cases, women with breast implants can breastfeed successfully, however, it is important to discuss these concerns with the plastic surgeon, before surgery, and with a breastfeeding consultant, after the birth of the child to evaluate the options and receive support.
