Will I still be able to breastfeed after a breast reduction?

As your surgeon is likely to remove some milk glands and ducts during a breast reduction, this can effect your ability to breastfeed post-operatively.

Many women can still breastfeed after surgery, but this depends heavily on the tissue removal technique that your surgeon uses. Certain surgical techniques will have more of an effect on your ability to breastfeed than others.

For this reason, it is very important to notify your surgeon if you are planning to breastfeed in the future.
