I am due in 4 weeks and planning to breast feed. I've been trying to research pumps but am not sure if my surgery will make a difference on what would be a good product. Anyone have any info or ideas??

I recommend the pump in style medela breast pump! I have had my since 2006 and I am using it on my second child now. It has strong suction to help get the milk out, and it still work like brand new. Yes they are a little costly but well worth the money! Especially if you are going to be pumping a lot or going to be having more than one kid!

I had a BA and have had no problems using my pump. I have a Medela Pump In Style. I was slow to make colostrum and didn't get it in until 20 hours after he was born but I don't think that had anything to do with my implants. At this point BFing is going great and I have had no problems resulting from having had a BA. Also, my boobs still look great! I'm a member of a BA forum and 7 or 8 women have had babies in the past year and all of them so far are BFing and have also had no problems with pumping or BFing as a result of having a BA.
