Breastfeeding after breast augmentation surgery
Q: A woman in her mid-30s. A few years ago, I underwent breast augmentation surgery through a wheel incision. I’m currently pregnant and over 22 weeks old.
The first milk isn’t coming out right now. Is there a problem because of the surgery? It’s not impossible to breastfeed, right? There’s no problem, right?
A: Breastfeeding is possible normally after breast augmentation surgery. Armpit incision during breast enlargement does not affect the mammary gland that makes breast milk at all. Therefore, breastfeeding is possible just like those who have not undergone surgery.
There is a slight possibility of injury to the mammary gland during a mammary incision, but in reality, the mammary gland is injured and does not prevent breastfeeding. In fact, even with a wheel incision, almost everyone can breastfeed normally.
