Common Questions and Answers about Breast implants breast feed


142722 tn?1281537216 Ok, just want to know if anyone has breast feed her child with breast implants? How is it? Also, I am 8w6d and have gained 7pounds - is this normal? It seems to much. It has been 11years since I had a child, so I have forgotten what was like.
7928796 tn?1396355529 I know one woman who breast fed three babies a year a piece with implants and I know another that breast fed her first, got implants and couldn't breast feed her second or third...
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if you can breast feed because of the implants but as far as I know that's the only thing it effects pregnancy wise
Avatar f tn I'm 24 weeks currently with implants. I was 34D before, I've been wearing a 36D nursing bra which is too small. I have a 36DD ordered. I've gained a lot of weight in my chest. Plus I have already started leaking.
Avatar n tn I want to get breast implants done in the next 2 months or so, but I was also wondering can I breast feed after having the implants. I have heard 2 stories for it, some people say yes & some say no.
Avatar n tn I don't normally post here but you all seem so helpful I though maybe someone might be able to give me some insight. I have breast implants and I plan to breast feed my baby when he/she gets here. However I know it it much harder and there is a chance you can not with implants esp. if they are over the muscle (which mine are). I was wondering if anyone had any positive experiences with this where they were able to breast feed and produce an adequate supply of milk.
Avatar f tn I got breast implants after my 3rd baby (thinking I was done) but later down the road decided we wanted one more. I know a lot of ppl breast feed and everything with them but I have so much more breast pain since I got pregnant. I'm guessing just the normal changes your boobs go through being pregnant plus those implants in there are causing the pain. But now I'm getting super worried about when milk comes in? Is that just going to be unbearable?
Avatar f tn I had implants 3 years ago (crease incision) and have been going to specialist preparing to breast feed classes for mom's with implants, because some have lost nipple sensation or have had areola incision it may be more difficult but not necessarily impossible to feed.
358455 tn?1277437219 She has a 2 year old daughter and she was able to breast feed, with no problems.
6918915 tn?1395936471 I have silicone gel, under the muscle implants. I've been told I can probably still breast feed but my boob haven't started leaking yet and with my first they leaked at 29 weeks (I didn't have implants then.) So now idk if that means anything. But also I want to know about the after effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding. Do they sag and shrink? I know my implant won't actually move but I'm worried my real breasts which are over them will sag and then look weird. I've gone up two cup sizes.
Avatar f tn Hi Everyone, Is there anyone out there that is or have breast feed successfully with implants? I have implants under my breast muscles, so of course I should be able to breast feed. Just wondering if anyone wanted to share their experience and give me a couple of pointers for my future little one. I still have a little over 5 months before he / she gets here but I want to be prepared. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Actually, if your nipple still has feeling, the chance are high. Breast augmentation (breast implants) isn't a reason alone not to be able to produce breast milk. Most likely, it depends on the kind of surgery you had, but most approaches are compatible with breastfeeding. Incisions made under the fold of the breast or through the armpit shouldn't cause any trouble. A "Smile" incision around the areola increase your risks of breastfeeding complications.
142722 tn?1281537216 I am now 6months preg. and going to try and breast feed. Will breastfeeding effect the way the implants look? Will my breast look bad? I have heard some say they look bad after breastfeeding. Will they sag?
Avatar n tn Further studies are needed in this area. But if a woman with implants wants to breast-feed, she should first discuss the potential benefits and risks with her child's doctor.
142722 tn?1281537216 said it doesn't that only leaks can effect and make them different. I am planning to breast feed but was wondering what it would do to my implants - it was something that came up on another forum.
Avatar n tn Ok so I have kind of a strange question, Does anyone know if you aqre able to breast feed if you have had your nipples pierced?
Avatar n tn I have a 6 year old daughter that I wanted to breast feed, which was obviously before the implants but I never produced milk. So if you are unable to produce, it probably has nothing to do with the implants, maybe it's just your body. I'm trying to be hopeful that this time around I will produce but so far I haven't leaked anything so I'm just thinking there is something wrong with me, lol.
Avatar n tn A friend of mine told me that her friend had a breast augmentation before she got pregnant and when she decided to breast feed, b/c of the scar tissue it hurt her real bad everytime she would breast feed...which she could only handle for about three months. I am just scared to death about pain, but I guess all I can do it try. I just wanted other opinions if you have had breast augmentation and have breast feed or if you know of anyone who has. Thanks!
Avatar n tn Dear Jessica, Breast pain is a common breast symptom. The reason for breast pain is not clearly understood, and is not usually associated with breast cancer. Breast pain is sometimes associated with hormonal variations and is then called cyclical breast pain. Noncyclical breast pain does not seem to be linked to hormonal variations and is often localized to one area of the breast tissue. Noncyclical breast pain may or may not be the result of an injury to the breast.
Avatar f tn I know a lot of women who did breast feed their babies lost their boob size. I want to breast feed but i also dont want to loose my boob this slefish idk?
184527 tn?1240977004 Hello, I wanted to know if it is possible to breast feed after having a breast reduction.? I went from a 40DDD to a 36c, 6 years ago. Since being pregnant they are growing again and I wonder if that is a good sign! Thanks.
Avatar n tn Hi... just wondering if anyone has managed to breast feed after having a breast reduction?
Avatar n tn I too have this problem! It stated soon after a got a breast lift and implants to correct a slight tubular breast disorder. I was wondering if it could have anything to do with the implants or the scars or just the fact that my breasts are bigger than they were. My problem, though, is that its a very strong oder! I'm not sure if people can smell it but I constantly worry that they can.
169867 tn?1327602254 I was wondering if anyone had any personla experience of or knew of any websites or anywhere where I can get more info on breastfeeding and breast implants. I'm 25 weeks pregnant and have implants (over the muscle) but need more info before I can make any decision to breastfeed. I have already got 4 children (all breastfed) and have had my implants a couple of years, so this is all new to me. I'm hoping it will still be possible, I'm usually leaking by now but so far not a thing...
Avatar n tn yes - you can still breast feed if you have them behind the muscle - thanks for your input...i was just wondering.
Avatar n tn I had breast implants in for 20 years. I went in regularly and had them checked. I did not, however, breast feed my kids. I waited until I was done. The doctor kept telling me he thought everything was fine. I began having major health issues. I told a friend how I was feeling and she asked me if I happened to have implants. I couldn't believe it! She said that many girls have sued the implant company and gotten money because they have gotten ill from the implants.
142722 tn?1281537216 I believe that it is very unlikely that your augmentation has anything to do with your ability to breast feed. This is particularly true if the implants sit submuscular (or partially submuscular) and were inserted through an incision that did not cut through breast tissue (inframammary, transaxillary or transumbilical).
6918915 tn?1395936471 I have silicone gel implants that are under the muscle. They say you should be able to breast feed but that every situation is different. I am hoping ill be able to.
