In short, yes.
Following breast augmentation surgery, the sensation to your nipples may change. Some women will develop increased sensation; some will have decreased sensation. Most changes in sensation are temporary and therefore will return to normal. Because sensory feedback from the nipple helps stimulate milk production, in cases where sensation is impaired, milk production may be reduced.
For patients that have breast implants placed alone (without breast lift or reduction), the chance of having impaired milk production is exceedingly low. However, if your breasts were augmented because of underdeveloped breasts (breast hypoplasia) or tuberous breast deformity (constricted breast), you may have trouble producing enough milk.
