The Effects of Breastfeeding on Breast Implants

For many women, a hesitation to getting implants is directly linked to a desire to breastfeed their future children. There are many important questions around this topic, and today I want to focus on a new study that has reported the effects of breastfeeding on women with implants.

The research evaluated breast measurements in 57 women who breastfed with an augmentation, and 62 women with breast implants who did not breastfeed.

Against the expected results, the study found that breastfeeding will not turn your perfectly augmented breasts into “rocks in socks.”

Dr. Norma Cruz, from the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine in San Juan, reports that “breastfeeding does not appear to further cause breasts to sag in women who’ve had breast augmentation, because breast sagging results from changes brought about by the pregnancy itself—not breastfeeding.”

That’s great news for many of us! And on a side note, I’ve known many women who are actually happier with the look of their breast implants after pregnancy and nursing.

Hi, ladies!

I am so glad you're here, because I know exactly how it feels to look in the mirror and feel self conscious.

That was the story of my life until I made one of the best decisions of my life—getting a breast augmentation. I want you to know that there is no shame in you considering breast implants, and you are absolutely worth the investment.

If you're ready to LOVE the reflection you see in the mirror, then I'm here to guide you every step of the way!
