Ask Dr. Case:
Question: Will breast implants impede the production of milk or the feeding of a baby?
Answer: Breast implants will not impede milk production which is dependent on hormones. In theory, the implants should not affect breast feeding since placement of the implant does not typically disrupt the breast unit (gland, ducts and nipple). Successful breast feeding is contingent on many factors including but not limited to hormone production, milk production and the baby's ability to take the milk.
