The breast augmentations can affect the woman's ability to breast feed and may cause pain and discomfort during pregnancy, as the breast tend to grow substantially when a woman is expecting a baby.
Women who have breast implant very likely have had an incision made around the nipples, which can cause some nerve damage that can affect breastfeeding. This may slow down milk production, as the incision is also made near the milk ducts. However, there are ways that breast implants can be inserted into the body in a way that will not affect breastfeeding at all. So, if a woman wants to have breast augmentation surgery, it is important that she talk with her doctor about her desire to become pregnant so the operation will be performed in a way that won't affect her ability to breastfeed.
Most women experience significant breast growth during pregnancy, particularly during the second and third trimesters. While this will not affect the implant itself, the stretching and expanding of the breast tissue may mean that the woman will have to have additional breast surgeries after the baby is born. Women who want to get breast implants or already have implants should be aware that a breast lift or additional augmentation may be necessary after pregnancy, depending on how the breasts grow and are shaped after the baby is born.
Implant and Past Pregnancy Problems
If you have already had children and are considering enlargement of any kind, it is advised that you wait at least 6 months after giving birth to your child, or until 6 months after you have stopped the feeding of your baby; whichever occurs the latest.
