Breast augmentation is that a reduction in size? If it is then as long as they didn't do anything to the milk ducts then I don't see why you can't BF your baby girl. Congrate son the girl and I would ask your midwife about this as they would be able to give you a better answer I think.

if you are worried that your milk hasn't come in like you should go to your doctor and get domperidone - its a indegestion tablet which causes loads of milk to come through

As you have said with implants at the nipples your milk supply may have been cut and therefore not work. But even if you have implants put in from under your boobs it is difficult. The production of milk is not affected BUT with the implant pushing hard up against the front of your boob can affect the flow to the nipple as the milk is pushed only around the edge of your implant rather than flowing directly through the entire breat. Also as you will know it can be hard for the baby to latch on when your boobs are engorged with milk, so with the implants pushed hard to the front of your boobs when engorged makes it even harder.
Having said all this any professional in the know will tell you yes you can feed, it's a case of can you cope with the added difficulty in the beginning. Good luck.

Any breastfeeding or breastmilk you can give your baby will be wonderful, even the smallest, smallest amounts can really help baby's long term health. Why not try it and see how it goes?

You might want to consult an IBCLC, too. They're expensive but the savings on formula outweigh the costs of the consultation. They will be able to help you give baby what you can.
