You Can Still Breastfeed, But There IS a Risk
Most women who undergo breast augmentation procedures when they’re younger have absolutely no problem breastfeeding once they have children. However, there IS a minor risk associated with breast augmentation surgery that’s important for clients to be aware of.
While breast augmentation is safer and more precise than ever before, there is the possibility that nerve damage could occur. This nerve damage can be attributed to incisions that may potentially be made around the areola, either to accommodate implant placement or to readjust the nipple’s positioning to better match the new breasts. Most nipple adjustments are made without nerve damage, but in some cases, it can occur.
Here’s why it matters: If nerve damage happens, it can be a lot harder for women to have the sensation of the baby latching onto the nipple, which is essential for successful breastfeeding.
