Breast reductions are not uncommon. Almost 500,000 women have breast reductions every year. Breastfeeding after reduction even has its own acronym — BFAR. And there are enough women who try it to spawn a BFAR support website and Facebook group.

But there is also a lot of misinformation and ignorance of the challenges that BFAR women face. There are very few studies on how breast surgery affects breastfeeding.
