You will need a thorough examination so that an accurate assessment can be made. In general, nerve and blood vessel function is preserved with breast reduction surgery. The ability to breast feed also relies on the preservation of milk glands that are still connected with the nipple. Certain techniques like the superior and central pedicle types of reductions are known to preserve this connection well.
Although cup sizes are a poor way to communicate size goals, a 34 D is entirely possible while still preserving function. Please visit a few cosmetic breast specialist that can show you many examples of their results.
Best of luck!

Before undergoing the breast reduction procedure it will be very important to communicate your size goals with your (carefully selected) plastic surgeon. Most patients wish to achieve enough of a reduction to help with their symptoms while remaining proportionate with the remainder of their torso. With the goal of improving communication with my patients I find the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) very helpful. I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or “C cup” means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful. Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate.
Best wishes with your breast reduction procedure; hopefully you will be very pleased with the outcome of the procedure performed.
