    i am going to ask my boss for you tomorrow...

    Can you PM me if you are uncomfortable to post here...How was your procedure done? As in how were the implants put in. What is your incision like? This is important because if your milk ducts were cut it would reduce the amount if milk you might have.

    I can tell you there are many woman out there who nurse post implants as well as post reduction.

    From what I understand, it's kind of like a 50/50 depending on how you had the surgery done. I had a friend who had a breast reduction in her teenage years. Her doctor told her that she might or might not be able to breast feed. By the time her son was born, she wasn't producing enough milk or something so she wasn't able too.
    Of course, that's a different surgery.
    I really hope you can breastfeed! I personally can't wait to breastfeed and I feel so silly for feeling that way lol.
