Can women with breast implants still breastfeed?

The eldest Kardashian sister is not shy about the fact that she got implants well before starting a family. And for the 300,000+ women who get them ever year, the ability to breastfeed future children is a major concern. So, in case you're still confused, here it is straight from the doctor's mouth keyboard: YES, you can still breastfeed with implants

Says Dr. Michael Workman: "On average, there's roughly a 90% chance that you will be able to breastfeed after having breast implants, on the assumption that you were able to breastfeed before the surgery. Normally the breast implant is inserted under the muscle (occasionally it is placed above the muscle as well) but doing so should not effect the direct relationship between the breast glands/ducts and the nipple."

Kourtney already knew this, of course, because she breastfed baby Mason and was very open about her feelings. "I love the bonding time, love that it’s natural and what your body is made to do, love the benefits for his body and mine," she wrote on her blog. "I find it to be such an amazing womanly thing."

Would the inability to breastfeed stop you from having a cosmetic procedure, if it's something you really wanted?

My cousin breast feed 3 infants one after another successfully with implants. What's this drama that it can't be done? I don't get it? All her children are happy and healthy. She is still currently breastfeeding the youngster of the 3. She has had her implants for over 13 years without any issues. She actually said just last week after she is done weaning the lil one she will get a lift . She is 39 yrs old.

Im sorry but anyone who puts having breast implants over breastfeeding is a fool. I cannot believe that we live in a culture where people value their looks more than they do the wellbeing and nurturing of another soul.
