Is It Normal for Milk to Leak After a BA?

I had a BA about 2 weeks ago; I have had 3 follow up visits with my PS and everything is good! My left side has been slightly more swollen and sore than the right and while doing the massages this morning I noticed a couple of drops of milk leaking. Last tiime I was pregnant was over 24 years ago!

SOme women do have spontaneous nipple discharge after breast surgery. If it persists it may be a good idea to see your surgeon or OB/GYN.

Breast milk leaking is normal after augmentation

Even after 24 years, women can experience milk leaking from the nipple after breast augmentation.  It is not all that common, but it is not surprising.  This usually resolves in a few weeks and seems to have no long term consequence.

Thank you for your question.

Yes, it is normal to have temporary discharge from the nipple after breast surgery.  This should resolve in a few weeks.  If it persists, a visit to your OBGYN may be indicated.

I hope this helps.

This will occasionally happen after breast augmentation and is transient and should stop within a few weeks in most cases. If it lasts longer than that it is worth going back to your surgeon for an evaluation.

It's is not common but not unheard of to have the breast lactating after undergoing a breast augmentation. It usually is minimal and last a few weeks. If it persists it would be wise to see ones OBGYN doctore.
