I work for the Polyclinic Plastic Surgery. I’ve been doing breast augmentation (breast implants) for 25 years.¬†Women always want to know what’s going to happen when I get pregnant? Will my breast change? Will I be able to breast feed? Those are excellent questions to ask and the answer is – most women have successfully breast fed after an augmentation. The other subtle things – to me, after 25 years of examining my patients who’ve had a breast augmentation and then several babies, I don’t see a lot of sagging or drooping. To me the implant acts like a splint and after breast feeding is over, everything tends to draw back and retract to that splint, to that implant. If women were having a lot of sagging issues after breast feeding, I’d have a lot more breast lifts to do. The truth of the matter is they’re not coming back to me to fix things after two or three babies.
