A breast augmentation can reduce the chances of being able to breast feed in certain patients. There a few things you and your surgeon can do to maximize your ability to breast feed after breast implants. One would be choosing an incision away from the areola and placing the implant under the muscle (submuscular or subpectoral). I always advise patients however if breast feeding is a very high priority for them to consider holding off on breast augmentation until after their pregnancies. That is the only 100% effective way to ensure that you will be able to breast feed.

“Dr Bruno is a true artist! I had 2 big procedures done: tummy tuck and breast lift with revision and I was amazed by his attention to detail. He is advanced and skilled. I went to a few consultations with other plastic surgeons…but found Dr Bruno to be the best most recommended. His before and after photos also confirmed for me that I’m making the right choice. The recovery with him was amazing. His staff is very knowledgeable and friendly as well. They made the financials straight through and we’re not pushy or aggressive. I highly recommend him!”
