One of the most common questions our prospective breast augmentation patients in the San Francisco area ask is, Can I breastfeed after breast augmentation? The answer to this question cannot be answered with a simple yes or no.
There are several factors at play when it comes to breastfeeding an infant. The most important consideration is that some women are not able to successfully breastfeed their baby – even if they have never had any type of breast surgery or breast procedure. Nonetheless, any type of breast surgery can put a woman at a very minimal risk of having problems breastfeeding when the times comes.
If you are considering breast augmentation and have questions about breastfeeding a baby after the procedure, it’s important to discuss your concerns with Dr. Liu at your initial consultation. While most women do not experience any problems with breastfeeding after breast augmentation, it’s important to be well-informed and to understand all of the risks and benefits.
