QUESTION

No Milk Coming out After Breast Augmentation Surgery?

I had my breast augmentation surgery about 4 years ago, and I gave birth to my daughter 8 days ago. My milk has still not come in. I am NOT planning on breast feeding, but does this mean that the milk is not going to come at all?

ANSWER

Lactation after breast augmentation

Thanks for the great question - It is difficult to say. Some women who were previously able to breast feed find themselves unable to breast feed with subsequent births even without any surgery so there is a percentage of women who can have problems breast feeding even without surgery. That being said most experts put the chance of not being able to lactate after breast implant surgery at 5-10%. I hope this helps!
