Can my Husband Suck/lick my Nipples After BA?

Is it safe for my husband to put his mouth on my nipples? 350cc, silicone, unders, implanted 5 months ago... (Also, I lactate a small amount with nipple stimulation - always have.) Thank you for any input :)

Sexual Activity After Breast Augmentation

Normal sexual activity with your husband five months after your breast augmentation is not an issue.

I find this posting is be out of place! You should ask your surgeon about this issue!!! 

Nipple contamination after breast augmentation?

It takes several weeks for any communications from the breast ducts (which connect and ultimately end at the nipple) to the surgical implant pocket to heal. During that time, I advise my patients to avoid baths, hot tubs, Jacuzzis, or swimming pools, lakes, etc. for at least 3 weeks. The same would apply to mouth-nipple interaction, since the mouth has a lot of bacteria that could potentially end up causing an infectious or possibly biofilm-induced capsular contracture increased risk.

But by 5 months you've "over-protected" by about 4 months! Stimulation-induced lactation not a concern either! Please proceed. Dr. Tholen

Nipple suction after breast augmentation

It would have been fine even 6 weeks post-op.  You may not want to tell your husband (about the 6 weeks) or else he may need a therapist!

This should not be an issue this far (5 months) out from surgery  Thanks for your question, all the best.
