Almost 6 years ago I had a reduction, using the pedicle technique. Has anyone here been successful BFAR? I've been to the BFAR website, but I'd really like to know if anyone here has had any luck.

I haven't bfar(mine is scheduled for in the next few weeks though). The dr said I would not be able to bf'd, now I know this isn't necessarily true but it doesn't matter since we're done having kids.

It depends on how many of the ducts were cut. You may be able to fully bf'd, partially or not at all.

I don't know anyone who's had a reduction so I'm not sure. From what I've read, you'll have to try it and see, like what Carrie said. Good luck and stick around!!!!!!

Hi there,

My sister had a reduction before her marriage, and she had a bit of trouble BFing her first son, but she just had her second son and has plenty of milk. It definitely depends on how many ducts they cut, but it can be done. Good luck!
