Breastfeeding After Breast Reduction Surgery

Do any of you have the book Defining your Own Success: Breastfeeding After Breast Reduction Surgery or have any information/experience with this? I have a family member that had this surgery and she is due in April...PM me or post here

Re: Breastfeeding After Breast Reduction Surgery

I have successfully breastfeed 2 los after breast augmentation. I've done a lot of research. In order to get a good idea she needs to know what type of reuction is had and if any glands were cut/sutured. I would contact the surgeon and get a OR report and/or doctors notes.

I wish her the best of luck. It can be done.

Re: Breastfeeding After Breast Reduction Surgery

I am successfully breastfeeding a 17 month old after reduction surgery. I know it's not always possible but I am so glad it is for us. I know there's a website, it's something like www.bfar.org that is breastfeeding after reduction that's a great source of info. I had my reduction is 2002 and dd was born in 2007. The downside is my boobs are huge again!
