Effect on Breast-feeding

Despite the overwhelming advantages of breast-feeding, some women with silicone breast implants may fear silicone could be passed on to their child, possibly affecting growth and development. However, according to a study, that measured silicon as an indicator of silicone, the levels of silicon found in lactating mothers with implants, as compared to lactating mothers without implants, was not significantly different.

"Our findings suggest there is no difference in silicone levels in the breast milk of women with silicone breast implants than in the breast milk of women without implants," said John Semple, MD, ASPS Member Surgeon and study author.

More than 329,000 breast augmentations were performed in 2006, according to the ASPS. For the first time since ASPS began collecting statistics in 1992, breast augmentation was the top cosmetic surgical procedure performed.
