  • Would be best. After all, it is surgery on the area in question. And the ducts could be severed.

  • I would not only wait until you're done breastfeeding this child, but until you're done having children. It could affect your future ability to breastfeed. If you DO have it done and plan to have more children, make SURE the surgeon knows that.

  • Yes. The milk ducts are often damaged during breast surgeries
