Alice Coombe, 24, went from size 32A to 34DD following breast augmentation surgery in 2016, soon after the birth of her son Hector who she said she “hated” feeding
A mum has revealed she had a special boob job which allowed her to breastfeed her baby after fears her ‘small bust’ could affect her confidence.
Alice Coombe, 24, went from size 32A to 34DD following breast augmentation surgery in 2016, soon after the birth of her son Hector.
Alice, who gave birth to daughter Elizabeth seven months ago, said she hated her bust when she fed her eldest child and feared her confidence and bond would suffer with more children unless she got bigger boobs.
Following the surgery, Alice said she was thrilled with the results.

She asked for her implants to be put underneath the milk glands so it does not affect breastfeeding, and had “no complications” feeding Elizabeth.
And while Alice says she fake boobs have helped boost her confidence, she would never have gone ahead with the surgery had it meant she would be unable to breastfeed.

She said: “Breastfeeding was very important for me.
“I feel it’s a bonding process with your baby and I feel you’re giving them the best nutrients, it’s such a natural thing to do and for them it’s so comforting too.
“I hated my boobs after breastfeeding the first time. I always had little boobs.
“To me it was the best thing I ever did.”
Alice breastfed both of her children, Hector, three and Elizabeth, seven months, until they were five months old.

Many breastfeeding websites say that it is most likely possible to breastfeed, but it depends on the kind of surgery.
While most approaches are compatible with breastfeeding, a “smile” incision around the areola increases your risk of having breastfeeding problems.
Alice, a former PR worker of Plymouth, Devon, spent the last 10 years in Tenerife, where she met fiancé Hector and had her two children said she believes that “everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin”.

She added: “We shouldn’t have to hide things that we are proud of. I’m very proud of my boobs.
“I wasn’t happy and there was a chance to change it, so I did.
“Wear what you want, if you want to show your legs or your boobs then you can.
“It’s 2018, it’s just a bit of cleavage.”
The surgery, which she had done in Spain, cost her £3,800.
She added: “Hector was very encouraging, it’s lovely to have that kind of support. My whole family are supportive.”
