Preserving nipple sensitivity and ability to breast feed with The Horndeski Method breast lift/reduction
Breast reductions, nipple sensation and breast feeding . . . what you should know.
The questions you have identified are important considerations for any women considering a breast reduction and especially for those who are still planning on adding to their family.
Typically, nipple sensation is diminished after surgery and then gradually returns, however, with any breast reduction technique, there is a chance of developing impaired nipple sensation or even numbness.
Breast feeding is often possible following breast reduction surgery, but this too can not be garaunteed. It is safer to assume that you'll be more likely to need formula to supplement your breast feeding following surgery.
If a Free Nipple Graft techinique is planned, then numbness and an inability to breast feed are expected.
