Breast feeding after explant
If you are able to breast feed with the implants, it would be unlikely that you would have a problem after the implants are removed. It is probably wise to wait 3 months after you have stopped breast feeding to have the removed.
After the implant is removed you can start breast feeding at your next pregnancy. You would not want to undergo anesthesia if you are currently pregnant or breast feeding.

Removing implants should not affect the ability to breast feed
Thanks for your question. It is unclear why you want the breast implants removed. If you have soft implants and relatively normal capsules then this could be done very soon. If there is a contracture, then I would wait at least 3 months from stopping breast feeding before having surgery. Once the implants have been removed, you should be able to breast feed your next pregnancy. Best of Luck!
Breast feeding after implant removal
Breast feeding should not affect you ability to breast feed but you would probably like to wait at least a few months before breast feeding again. Implant removal is typically not too difficult to perform or under go, so in most cases you should be fine.
Will breast implant removal negatively affect my breastfeeding ability?
Thank you for the question. Removal of breast implants will not negatively affect breast-feeding in the future. I would suggest that you wait at least 3 to 6 months after you have stopped breast-feeding before you undergo elective breast surgery.

Will breast implant removal negatively affect my breastfeeding ability?How long after having the removal can I breastfeed again?
Discuss breastfeeding and implant removal with your Plastic Surgeon, as well as your OBGYN doctor. Having the implants removed will not have a negative affect on breastfeeding.
Breast feeding and implant removal
You can safely remove silicone breast implant and breast feed your baby after healing. Most of us recommend at least 4-6 weeks after implant removal. If you plan this well before pregnancy, it should not be an issue. Make sure to see a plastic surgeon for full evaluation.
Wait 3-6 months after weaning before pursuing explantation.
nursing is a priority to you, I recommend waiting until after you’ve weaned
your baby before pursuing explantation. Performing surgery and going through
recovery while still maintaining your milk supply would be challenging to say
the least. After weaning, I suggest waiting at least 3 months (6 would be
better) before pursuing explantation. Your breasts need time to go back to
their natural pre-breastfeeding size and profile in order for you to see the
best results. Removing your breast implants shouldn’t affect your ability to
breastfeed future children, although keep in mind that many women even without
implants find their nursing capacity varies from baby to baby.
