Boob job may harm breastfeeding

Most women would like to have bigger breasts. Some will go under the knife to achieve the size they want but making your breasts bigger may not be better. According to a research, women who went for cosmetic breast enlargement may find it difficult to breastfeed their child. From The Observer:
Ultrasound technology has revealed that there are far fewer milk ducts in the breast than previously thought. As a result, experts believe the loss of only a few ducts in cosmetic surgery can seriously affect the capacity to breastfeed...

...the glandular tissue is concentrated nearer the nipple, not evenly distributed in the breast. The findings could change the surgical strategies for women who want their breasts either enhanced or reduced, as tissue is often taken from near the nipple area.

I don't think women who want bigger boobs will stop going for breast implants just because they will have problem breastfeeding in the future. Here's to bigger boobs!

It's a little silly that they had to do "research" to find that out don't you think? Like riiiiight, having bags of silicone or saline inside your boob *doesn't* have any negative effect whatsoever on your milk ducts et al. :P
