Breast Augmentation Surgery Can Make Breastfeeding Difficult

Breastfeeding after a breast augmentation surgery

Breast augmetationI am often asked about breastfeeding after breast augmentation surgery, so it’s probably time to write a blog post about it.

No matter where the incision site of a breast implant is, there is a good chance it will affect your ability to breast feed. This is because the breast ducts that deliver milk to your nipples are often severed or damaged in the course of surgery.

It is common among women who have had the surgery to produce enough milk but run into problems because the milk can not get through the milk ducts.

This can lead to an increased occurrence of infection in the milk ducts, which can be painful and especially difficult to deal with if you are already having trouble with breastfeeding.

Advice on before deciding to have a breast augmentation

Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of women who are successful with breastfeeding and have no issues after surgery. There are also women who are able to breastfeed with a bit of extra effort including using a pump and supplementing with formula.

The fact of the matter, though, is that if breastfeeding is important to you (and frankly, I think it should be), you should put off the the surgery until after you have had children.

If you are looking to increase your breast size and you have not had children yet, I would recommend looking into natural breast enhancement. The breast enhancement pills and creams on the market can increase your breast size naturally without risking issues with breastfeeding.

Try the natural breast enhancement now, and keep in mind that surgery is still an option after you have had kids. Hope this helps.
