Would I be able to breast feed if I get breast implants?

You will certainly be able to breast feed. Many women have breast implants and are able to breast feed normally. Studies support this and this is true for both silicone and saline breast implants, whether it is placed on top or underneath the muscle. Good Luck.

Breast implants should not interfere with breast feeding. I prefer to use the incision under the breast (infra mammary crease incision) and not the incision through the areola. Be aware however that not all women are able to breast feed even without implants.

Some women, who never had breast surgery, are naturally unable to breastfeed, and some variations of breast augmentation may make it more likely that you are unable to breastfeed, but most women with breast augmentations are able to successfully breastfeed. Breast implants pose no medical risk to your baby.
