Breast Enlargement & Uplift Risks & Complications FAQs

Will I be Able to Breastfeed After My Breast Enlargement and Uplift Surgery?

It is very likely that you will still be able to breastfeed after your surgery if you were able to breastfeed before it. However, some women may struggle to breastfeed after their breast enlargement and uplift. The incision and surgical technique your BAAPS/BAPRAS surgeon choose to use may impact your ability to breastfeed. It is therefore important to tell your surgeon during your consultation if you want to breastfeed in the future.

If you are currently breastfeeding, it is likely that you will have to stop for at least 3 to 6 months before having surgery. This will allow your breasts to settle before your procedure.
