Breastfeeding After Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures procedures we perform at our Newport Beach, CA facility. We strive to ensure our patients are always well informed before breast augmentation surgery.  One of the most asked questions is whether breast feeding post-surgery is possible.

The short answer is yes. With Newport Beach, CA board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lawton’s expertise, patients rarely have problems breast feeding after breast augmentation surgery. We do recommend that if you know you will be starting a family soon that you hold off on the breast augmentation during a Mommy Makeover after childbirth. If you decide to have your operation before having children, there are a few ways we can reduce the chance of damage to your milk ducts.

Dr. Lawton prefers to use a sub muscular implant, which lowers the risk of affecting the milk duct.  Dr. Lawton also prefers an inframammary decision (underneath the breast) — which lessens the likelihood that the milk production or milk ducts could be compromised.
