I have had a ruptured saline breast implant for 14 months now. I could not get it removed because I was breast feeding at the time. I waited 3 months for my milk to dry and right before surgery I found out I was pregnant and could not proceed with the surgery. Now baby is due any day, can I breast feed even with the ruptured implant?

It IS safe to breast feed. Do have the ruptured implant replaced after nursing is completed.

Yes, it is safe to breastfeed with a ruptured saline implant. However, once you've stopped breastfeeding, please have it removed/replaced.

Thank you for your question.
You should not have any worries when it comes to breast feeding with
the ruptured implant especially if it was placed under the muscle.. The saline solution has been safely absorbed into your body and will not be harmful to you or the baby. I would recommend you exchange them as soon as you can as the pocket is shrinking around the collapsed implant.

Can I Breast Feed w/ a Ruptured Saline Implant?Answr:
You should not have any problem because of the rupture. That should have no effect at all on your ability to breast feed!
Implant rupture and breast feeding
More than likely breast feeding with a rupture saline implant should not be a problem but the implant should be removed when able. Speak to your surgeon.
You can breast feed with a saline implant, ruptured or not
When the saline implant leaks the water is absorbed harmlessly into your system leaving the silicone rubber shell. The shell can be left in place and you can indeed breast feed without any harm or risk.
