Breast augmentation can help women gain confidence back in their appearance. But many women wonder if having a breast augmentation can affect breastfeeding.
What is a Breast Augmentation?
Dr. Ozan Sozer and Dr. Paul Phillips are experienced, Board-certified plastic surgeons that perform several breast augmentations each year. Breast augmentation is when breast implants are placed either under the chest muscles of the breasts or breast tissue. This surgery enhances the shape and appearance of the breasts, making them more proportional to the body.
We offer several types of implants at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, including saline implants, silicone implants, Gummy Bear implants, and SoftTouch Cohesive implants. All of these implants have been approved by the FDA.
While the nerves can be affected with breast augmentation like with any surgery, women who have implants under the muscle are less likely to have problems with producing breast milk.
One of the options for incision placement that Dr. Sozer and Dr. Philips offer is around the areola. An incision around the areola does not necessarily mean complete detachment, so it can still be attached to the breast milk ducts. Regardless, there is no guarantee of full production of breast milk. Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips will go over your personalized surgical plan to see which placement is most suitable for you if you want to have children in the future.
There is insufficient evidence that breast milk is affected by breast implants. While mainly silicone implants have been studied, there have been no clinical reports about babies being affected by the breast milk of mothers who have breast implants.
Candidates for Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation may be right for you if you have breasts that you feel self-conscious about beingtoo small. Breast augmentation can also fill out breasts for those who have experienced volume loss or sagginess due to pregnancy.
I had breast augmentation done in November, it’s been 3 months, and I am loving the results. Dr. Sozer did an amazing job and the staff was very friendly.
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
