Will I be able to breastfeed after breast augmentation?

Actually, what is the difference between breast augmentation and breast implants?

Breast feeding after breast augmentation surgery is usually possible, although some women with or without augmentation surgery try and do not succeed when trying breast feeding. Breast augmentation surgery places a saline or silicone filled implant behind your breast tissue, closer to the ribs and chest wall. They are not actually in the glandular portion of the breast, but rather behind it.

Implants are the device used. Augmentation is the procedure used to place the device. Augmentation mammaplasty is the medical term to describe augmentation. Breast enhancement is another term used for breast augmentation.

Breast implants or mammary prostheses are used to enlarge the breast using a procedure called breast augmentation. Most women who are able to breast-feed in the first place are able to breast-feed after breast augmentation.
