We usually request patients to postpone surgery until 4 months after they stopped breast feeding. They will still have a little milk in the ducts but it has never caused a problem.

Small amount of nipple discharge is probably not a contraindication to breast augmentation revision.

In my practice I would not have a problem proceeding with this is something that is more properly addressed to your surgeon.
