Dr. Tenley Lawton understands that many women would like to have a breast augmentation but struggle with the concern that they may not be able to breastfeed afterward. If you plan to breastfeed in the future or just want to keep your options open, breast augmentation surgery can preserve your ability to breastfeed.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation uses saline or silicone implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. During surgery, Dr. Lawtwon makes a small incision and uses it to place the implant into a pocket created either behind the breast tissue or behind the muscle. This popular procedure has given many women a tremendous boost in self-confidence, especially if it corrects uneven or asymmetrical breasts or those that have lost their natural volume.
For women who have given birth and breastfed children, the breasts may have lost significant volume after breastfeeding and may become noticeably smaller or flatter than they had been before. This seeks many women to consider breast augmentation, but not all of them feel certain that they have completed their family yet and wonder if implants will affect their ability to breastfeed in the future.
