At 24, Kendra is a Playboy Playmate and star of her own reality series Kendra. Since announcing her pregnancy with husband football player, Hank Baskett , Kendra has spoken openly about how being pregnant has affected her body and mood. In a recent interview she said, “I was so scared that I wasn’t going to be able to nurse that when I saw stuff come out of my nipples the other day, I was like, I can breast-feed?”

Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J Aston says, “I understand Ms. Wilkinson’s concerns regarding breast-feeding with implants; she can rest assured knowing there should not be any not interference between her breast implants and her milk ducts. However, the breasts routinely change (not for the better) following beast feeding regardless of implants. I wish her all the best in her pregnancy.”

New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “Women with breast implants can still breast feed. The implants are placed under the breast and most of the time under the muscle as well. So the glands and ducts are still intact.”

Many are under the impression that having breast implants means that women cannot breast feed, but this isn’t true. The ability to breastfeed depends on the woman, as well as the placement of the implant.

Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden explains, “It is very common for women with implants to wish to breastfeed, and many women do go on to breastfeed sucessfully. However, as a first time mom nobody can guarantee Kendra or Kourtney will be able breastfeed. This holds true even for women that do not have implants. Appropriately sized breast implants frequently do not interfere with breastfeeding if placed under the muscle and placed through an inframammary crease incision. Periareolar incisions carry a slightly higher higher risk of loss of nipple sensitivity and potential difficulty with lactation as the surgeon must navigate through the mammary gland to reach the pectoralis muscle.”

Kendra is due in December and Make Me Heal wishes her the best of luck in her new role as a mom.
