Breast health should be a concern for all our patients. The medical evidence is very conclusive. Dr. Collins assures patients there is no evidence of an increase in the incidence of breast cancer among women with implants. The FDA continually conducts rigorous studies on breast implant performance.
Immediately following surgery, sensitivity may change, but generally only lasts until normal, post-surgical swelling resolves. In fact, nipples can be more sensitive for a period of time following surgery.
Breastfeeding can still be an option for women with implants. A future decision to nurse may be a consideration in incision and placement approach. As an example, the inframammary incision is generally most compatible with future breastfeeding plans; and the areola incision less so.
