It is sometimes possible to breastfeed after undergoing breast surgery, but it will be a much different experience to breastfeeding without having a breast lift. Depending on the procedure, the surgery will affect the breasts and the lactation process in different ways. Breast lifts can affect the lactation system and make it difficult or impossible to breastfeed afterwards. If you are interested in getting a breast lift but still want to be able to breastfeed in the future, talk to your surgeon to see if there’s a way to alter the surgery to preserve your ability to breastfeed.
