How Breast Augmentation Can Impact Nursing

If you are considering breast augmentation it is important to bear in mind how this procedure may impact future decisions such as having children. There is nothing saying you cannot have children following breast augmentation. Breast enhancement will not make having children more difficult and breast implants do not need to interfere with breast feeding.

Future plans for children should be discussed with Dr. Gartside during your Virginia breast augmentation consultation. This will enable our board-certified plastic surgeon to choose incision and implant placement options that can reduce your risk for complications with nursing.

Virginia Breast Augmentation Options

The breast augmentation options our Virginia plastic surgeon may recommend to reduce nursing complications include:

  • Inframammary or transaxillary incisions – these incisions do not risk interfering with nipple sensitivity, making them better for women who may choose to have children after breast augmentation
  • Submuscular breast implant placement – placing implants underneath the muscles in the chest eliminates pressure on milk ducts. This placement can also reduce discomfort during pregnancy and nursing as breast tissue swells

During your Virginia breast augmentation consultation, Dr. Gartside will listen to your concerns, discuss all of your options, and help you determine which choices can help you reach your goals while protecting your ability to nurse.
