Many mothers face breastfeeding after you have increased the volume of their breasts with breast implants. Perhaps you wonder if breastfeeding is compatible with the implants, then we will resolve some of your doubts.

If you made a plastic surgery on your breasts to increase their size with silicone implants or saline water, it may be that your nipples are a little more sensitive than before you were pregnant or before you give birth. It is also possible that there is a swelling disproportionate to your breasts, chills, and fever after childbirth due to the production of milk.

If you have chosen to get implants because your breasts were very small (breasts hipoplásticos) you may have difficulty in the production of milk. So to solve this problem, you need to use the breastpump every time you finish breastfeeding your child.

Breastfeed with implants

It is likely that yes you can breastfeed with your implants, but it all depends on the type of surgery you've had. The surgeries that are performed through the armpit or below the breast fold should not be present big problems. Unfortunately, the method most commonly used today is to introduce the implants through the areola, making a small incision along the edge of the areola in the shape of a half moon. This type of surgery is the most likely to cause problems in breastfeeding.

Around the areola there are some nerves that inform the brain to produce and release two hormones, prolactin and oxytocin, which are responsible for the production of milk. If during the operation will not be cut or damaged these nerves, you'll be able to breastfeed partially or wholly to your baby. Obviously your chances of breastfeeding are increased if the system of mammary ducts did not suffer any damage.

Still not logged reports that the silicone gets out of the pocket of the implant and pass to the milk. However if this were to happen, would not be so harmful to the baby because the silicone is similar to a substance that is used as a treatment for the gas of the babies.

In any case, you will not be able to know what is the real damage of the nerves in your breasts due to the surgery until you have to breastfeed. Tell your doctor about the operation to be mindful of the curve of growth and development of your child and make sure she is getting enough milk. If your milk supply is partial and it is not enough to feed your child, you doctor tell you to supplement breast milk with formula milk.

If you have in mind to get a plastic surgery to increase the volume of your breasts without giving up breastfeeding, it's best to perform the surgery once you've had your last child and are finished nursing.
