Television star and former Playboy model Kendra Baskett said in an interview recently that she had always assumed the breast implants that had made her career would prevent her from being able to breastfeed her children.

“I was so scared that I wasn’t going to be able to nurse that when I saw stuff come out of my nipples the other day, I was like, I can breastfeed?” Baskett, 24, told US Magazine. Pleasantly surprised, she discovered upon consultation with her doctor that this is a common misconception affecting many women who opting for breast implants before deciding to have children.

TV Reality star Kourtney Kardashian also admitted that she had hopes to breastfeed but wasn’t sure she would be able and these celebrities are not alone in their skepticism.

“Women with breast implants don’t understand and think that they won’t be able to breastfeed and are surprised when they realize they can.” – Dr. Stephen Greenberg

A board certified plastic surgeon and the author of the book “A Little Nip, a Little Tuck,” Dr. Greenburg has consulted with a number of women suffering from this misconception and hopes to help enlighten women who may be resisting the temptation to get cosmetic surgery because they hope or plan to someday be a mother.

In fact, most women who have had breast implants will be able to breastfeed their baby but there are several factors which can affect this:

  • The type of surgery you had;
  • The type of incision used; and
  • Whether or not you suffer from underdeveloped or hypoplastic breasts.

Most approached to breast implants are compatible with breast feeding but “smile” incisions around the areola increase the risk of breastfeeding problems. If you underwent plastic surgery procedure to correct underdeveloped breasts then your body may not be capable of producing enough milk and you may have to use a breast pump to stimulate production or supplement your baby’s diet with formula or donor milk.

The location of the implant can also impact your ability to breast feed. The less pressure placed on the mammary glands, the better the chances that they will be able to produce a sufficient amount of milk. These glands will perform normally as long as they have the space and blood supply they need to grow.

Despite these facts, if you are considering getting implants but still plan to have a child, it is always better to wait until you have nursed your last child before opting for implants. This is because pregnancy and nursing can have a dramatic impact on the size and shape of the breasts and affect the final results of your surgery.

By waiting until after these changes have occurred you can correct any new issues that develop and avoid accidentally getting larger implants than you actually want.
