How Breastfeeding After Breast Lift and Implants?

Breast lifts and implants have become very popular. This surgical procedure can work wonders for women who are not satisfied with the current shape and size of their breasts. However, before getting this cosmetic procedure done, women have a lot of questions.

And one of the most popular questions is whether or how breastfeeding can be affected by breast lift and implants. Today, we’ll help you with the answer to this question. We’ll also talk about some other aspects related to this question.

Can Women Who Have Gotten Breast or Nipple Surgery Breastfeed Their Baby?

Yes, mothers who have had previous nipple or breast surgery can breastfeed their newborns without any hassle. It should be noted that research has shown that all postpartum women can produce colostrum, which is known as the first milk produced by mothers, irrespective of whether they have gotten nipple or breast surgery.

However, it should be noted that individual differences can also play a big role in this situation. Some women can produce a full amount of milk without any hassle. At the same time, some women might find it difficult to produce a smaller amount of milk. This difference between the amount of milk production is natural and is not something to worry about.

According to experts, a woman might seem to have a better milk supply when her surgery occurred five or more years before she became pregnant. This is true regardless of the type of cosmetic surgery that is performed.

Is There Any Type of Surgery that Can Affect the Production of Breast Milk?

If done correctly, there are no breast cosmetic procedures that can permanently affect the production of breast milk in women. This can only happen if the surgeon cuts the milk ducts and nerves present in the supply.

This is why you should only get breast cosmetic surgery done by a skilled, qualified, and experienced cosmetic surgeon. This will ensure that you get the best possible results from your surgery without hampering the quality or quantity of milk production.

How Does a Mother Measure Her Success at Breastfeeding?

Apart from the production of milk, there are a number of other benefits to breastfeeding. This means that successful breastfeeding does not always mean producing a full supply of milk. Some mothers are also able to fulfill the complete nutrition requirement of the baby through breast milk. In other cases, the child might need some supplements.

Women have reported that nurturing their baby at the breast can be fulfilling even with the use of a supplemental feeding device. New mothers know that every drop of breast milk counts and they value the time that the baby is skin-on-skin with them. This time is vital for the baby even if he or she is not getting any nutrition from sucking.

Can Women with Nipple Piercing Breastfeed Their Babies?

Ideally, women with nipple piercing should consider removing their nipple jewelery in the second trimester of their pregnancy. This jewelery should be left off during the period of time that one nurse the baby.

If an individual chooses to wear nipple jewelery, it must be removed before breastfeeding due to the risk of choking for the infant. Mothers should also be alert to the potential signs of infection as well as scarring. This can cause clogged nipple pores while breastfeeding. When an infant nurses, milk may come from the pierced sites.
