10 years ago I got breast implants half under the muscle, half over. The incision was on the areola. Before I got pregnant I didn't have 100% feeling around my breast. I can only assume nerve damage. Does anyone know a success story of who has successfully breast fed when the incision was through the areola?

I had no problems nursing before (my first child) or after (my second child) breast augmentation. My incision is in the armpit and the saline implants are under the muscle. I have not noticed any major changes in my breasts either. They are a little lower than they were. But, that is to be expected. Good bra helps with that.

I'm currently 30 weeks pregnant and the one thing that is slightly turning me off breast feeding is that it will ruin the look of my breasts.I have 460cc silicone gel implants under the muscle.Anybody had any experience with major breast change after breast feeding with implants?Thanks.

I am considering getting breast augmentation in the future, my question is for those who have breastfed or have been engorged, does having implants feel similar to that way? Like the pressure or the hardness or does it soften up? Curious, thanks ladies

I have had mine in for 6 yrs. they are under the muscle. I had no problems breastfeeding or getting milk with my son, as a matter of fact I am 27 weeks along now and leaking!

I know there are no entries in here, but I'de like to share my experiences with breast augmentation and having a child.
I was still able to breast feed with no problems. I was able to express about 4oz each side which I guess is kind of low, but I started supplementing with formula from the beggening, so I wasn't expressing as much. Maybe this is why I was only able to get 4ounces. My breast actually seemed to get smaller after a few months of birth. i didn't know how this was possible until I asked my doctor. The implant did not get smaller, my actual breast tissue got smaller (my real boobs), making my chest appear smaller in size. AND I still got slight stretch marks from this. My breast remained the same size throught pregnancy, except when I was engorging. I was a 36D.
I had my incision under the breast. I heard if you get the incision through the nipple, it may effect your ability to breast feed because they might cut some milk ducts.
