Can I Breastfeed After Breast Surgery?

Breastfeeding After Breast SurgeryMany patients ask the question whether they will be able to breastfeed after undergoing breast surgery – breast reduction, breast augmentation, or breast lift.

The truth is that many factors affect a mother’s ability to breastfeed her infant. Milk supply and a family support system are often as important as any other factors. Breast surgery is just one consideration among many and usually a prior breast surgery will not stand in the way of you experiencing this special time with your child.

If you are concerned about the effect your surgery will have on your ability to breastfeed, you should discuss this with Dr. Eisemann during your consultation. Certain techniques can be used to avoid severing nerves in the breast and nipple that would affect your ability to breastfeed.

Some women choose to wait until after they have experienced childbirth and breastfeeding to undergo breast surgery. Your breasts can change significantly during pregnancy and shortly after. At that time, you could consider a mommy makeover for an overall rejuvenation of your figure.

To discuss your breast surgery options and when the proper time is for your procedure, please contact Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at 713-766-0071 to schedule an appointment with triple-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann. We welcome clients from throughout Houston and the surrounding communities.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
