After all, many women want to have children, or aren’t done having children, and may worry that future pregnancies will be affected by a breast augmentation.

Will a Breast Augmentation Negatively Affect My Pregnancy?

There is nothing about a breast augmentation that is harmful or would cause negative effects for future pregnancies. Neither saline or silicone breast implants pose a health risk to women who are pregnant or their unborn children. Both types of implants have been thoroughly tested and are FDA approved. If you are a Calabasas woman, who has been suffering from asymmetrical breasts or even the emotional effects caused by breasts that are too small for your frame and rob you from self-confidence and pride, having a breast augmentation before you have children may be the best thing for you and your unique circumstances.

Will I Be Able to Breastfeed After a Breast Augmentation?

During your breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Costanzo at his Calabasas area clinic, he will ask you about your plans for future pregnancies and whether you desire to breastfeed. It is important that you are completely honest with him during this appointment, as his treatment plan will be based on your communicated needs and desired results. The type of incision used during your breast augmentation might affect your ability to breastfeed.

Incision Types – Generally, most women can still breast feed after a breast augmentation.  However, if you wish Dr. Costanzo to make an incision around your areola, which requires going through some of the breast ducts, this may affect your ability to breastfeed.  Dr. Costanzo may suggest placing the incision either in the breast fold or in the armpit to avoid the duct tissue.
