Can I Breastfeed with Implants?

Learn if you can breastfeed if you have breast implants from lactation consultant Melissa K. Nagin in this Howcast video.

Can you breastfeed with implants? Yes you can. Implants in most cases are put in behind the muscle, they do not disturb any of the tissue that is required for breastfeeding. So it’s absolutely fine to nurse and you’ll be able to obtain a very strong, normal milk supply even if you do have implants. It should not impede your breastfeeding at all.

The implants themselves do not affect the milk ducts, they don’t affect the nipple. But unless for some reason ducts were cut during the surgery you should be able to build a very strong, healthy milk supply.
