Can I breastfeed after breast reduction surgery?

Breastfeeding After Mammoplasty (Breast Reduction Surgery)

A major concern for women considering breast reduction mammoplasty is whether or not they can breastfeed after the surgery. It is possible, however your ability to have a full or reduced milk load depends on a few factors:

  • how much of the tissue is removed
  • whether milk ducts have been removed
  • sufficient gland attachments to the nipple
Other options are available to experience the bonding of breastfeeding, even if your surgery has left you with insufficient milk production. See a lactation specialist for assistance, in this case.
