Avatar n tn I have had saline implants for 5 years now, they were put under the muscle. sometimes I get little twiches or small pains that really don't last, I haven't gotton checked and I'm worried something could be wrong! Could something serious be going on? the real reason I haven't gotton checked is because I am scared to know something could be wrong! on the other hand I can't do it financially so I guess I use that as an excuse to not get checked! can somebody advise! thank you!
Avatar f tn My friend had hers under the muscle about 10 yrs ago. She breast fed just fine for her son who is now 2.
358455 tn?1277437219 My good friend also has under the muscle implants. She has a 2 year old daughter and she was able to breast feed, with no problems.
Avatar n tn I also have breast implants and plan to breast feed but mine are under the muscle. They were inserted under my breast - that is where my scar is. My dr. told me that I should be ok. I think if the milk ducts were cut, you should be ok. If you don't get many responses here go to the Cosmetic Surgery forum where the dr will post to your question. I posted the same question and he posted back. That will be a good place.
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 n tn I have read that implants do not cause cancer - just make it harder to detect. Would it be better to have the implant, under the pectorial muscle or over it? I understand that there are other ways (along with mamograms) to have your breasts examined (ie: ultrasound). Does anyone have an opinion? Thank you.
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 but I've been wondering so I've just got to ask. I had implants put in under the muscle about 3 1/2 years ago. They aren't anything crazy....I went from an A to a full C....they fit my frame well and people are always surprised when I divulge my secret. Anyway, how does pregnancy effect the less than natural breast? ;) Is breastfeeding possible? I haven't gotten my BFP yet but want to know what to expect when I do! Thanks girls!
Avatar f tn I am a 32 year old female with breast implants (under the muscle). I had them done almost 10 years ago and want to have them re-done. I found out about a year ago during a mammogram that I have a cyst in my right breast and now I can feel another one in my left breast. Do you think that I need to have these cysts removed before I decide to have my breasts re-done or could the plastic surgeon remove them during the surgery?

Avatar f tn This is my 2nd pregnancy and after having my 1st child I decided to get implants, I got them under the muscle and under breast fold incision, 400cc, I'm due April 8th 2015 and my boobs with be exactly 2 years old. Has anyone else experienced breast feeding and pregnancy with implants? Worries mine might leak? Be a risk to the baby? Incision opening? Not being able to breast feed?
Avatar n tn Is breast augmentation not a good idea if you have a family history of breast cancer? If the implant is under the muscle, are mammograms still effective in detecting cancer? I am 50 years old, mother and grandmother both had breast cancer in their late 50s.
169867 tn?1327602254 To my knowledge, you really need to discuss this w/the surgeon that put your implants in. Did he cut any milk ducts? Did he put them in from under the arm, the aerola? I would highly suggest contacting him, as he would be your best source of information on your particular case. Not all 'boob jobs' are done the same. Good for you for getting them, I'm still working up the courage, and wonder if I'll ever get there.
Avatar f tn I prefer breast implants to be placed under the muscle. I have very little breast tissue and have heard that people with no breast tissue or little breast tissue will get better results if the implants are placed under the muscle. And I will most probably be getting implants within couple of months. I have already talked to a surgeon Dr. Robert Backstein of Steeles Avenue Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Toronto, but haven't confirmed of getting the surgery.
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.
Avatar n tn Located under the muscle. Find a great Dr. in your area and have your wife go in for a consultation. Mine was free and quote was good for 6 mos. fun trying on the implants. Make sure all doubts and questions are answered and she is having surgery for the right reasons. Check out and feel comfortable with the surgeon and staff. Also have found that the most expensive does not necessarily mean the best. Compare surgeons in surrounding towns too. Good Luck!
142722 tn?1281537216 I had breast impants put in three years ago and they will inserted under the breast and under the muscle. I just had a baby three weeks ago and my milk production is very low. I am taking all these herbs and everything, but I only am able to pump out maybe an 1oz at a time. A far cry from the four he needs. Also, I never got engorged and didn't feel my milk come in like I did with my daughter before I got the implants. Did getting them cause my milk to not come in fully?
Avatar n tn I like to know from you two and others, how do they feel for the husband. I am a breast man. Would the implants interfere or put limitations on squeezing, cuddling, hugging etc during foreplay ? Would the breasts feel harder to touch for the husband ? What would be the difference between saline and silicone, in husband's point of view ? Thanks for you input.
Avatar n tn My implants are over the muscle and was done at the crease under the breast. I have two other children 1 of which I had absolutely no problems nursing,however that was before I got the lift!!! If anyone has experience with this or knows someone I would love to hear what you have to say!!!!! TIA!!!
Avatar n tn What is the difference with breastfeeding with implants under the muscle but the incision on the nipple than normal breast feeding?
Avatar n tn I had breast augmentation surgery six months ago - under the muscle, peri-areolar incision. The left breast remains hard, almost as if there is a wall around the implant. It is painful to lay on my stomach because it puts pressure on the breast and is firm to touch. I mentioned this to a PA I saw three months ago. She said it was common for one side to soften after the other and it usually corresponds to my dominant hand.

Avatar f tn Whether implants can hinder breastfeeding or not largely depends on where the breast implants are placed and what type of incision was made during the BA surgery. I had my surgery last month but i'm not married yet. Had my BA surgery in DR.Mclean's clinic in Toronto.

Avatar n tn I often have chest pain, and after being labled with anxiety, they say that the pain is either anxiety related or muscoskeletal. I also have excessive, excessive gas. Can that build up in my chest under my implants or in the muscle space and cause pain?
Avatar f tn I had no complications from the surgery. I do have visable scares under the breast where the implants where placed behind the muscle. My left beast is visably misshaped with a bulge that is located on the left of the breast under my arm pit. I am also interested if this is still a covered proceedure and the likely hood they will still pay for implants that have leaked. The leak in my left breast is at the very least 20 years old.
643558 tn?1258406109 My implants are under the muscle, I had the surgery back in 2003. I do not have any troubles with breastfeeding. I have 525cc for each breast, which took me from a 32A to a 32D. My OB/GYN said that he knew cases were women went too large and ended up causing damage from stretching, but not in my case. I had a friend in Atlanta that had her implants over the muscle, and the incision was around her nipple, and she still breastfed her baby without any problems. I think you should be fine.
