Breastfeeding after tuberous breast correction? (photos)
Doctor Answers 2
Congratulations on your breast augmentation and areola reduction! Regarding the question of breast feeding, that is a difficult question to answer. There is a subset of women who cannot breast feed even if they didn't have surgery, so it's unknown if you would have even been able to beforehand. The only real way to know if you are able to breast feed is to try it and see if a baby is able to properly latch or if there is enough milk production.

Based upon the procedures used to correct tuberous breast deformity, there is no reason why you should not be able to breast feed. I agree with your surgeon.
