can I breast feed a year or two after having a breast lift?
Breast feeding should be possible if you were able to breast feed before. It also depends on the type of lift. For more information please read: http://www.bostonplasticsurgeryspecialists.com/services/breast-surgery/breast-lift/
Usually the way I do lifts you can, but to know for sure call your doctor. He knows the technique he used, I don’t.
There is no problem in breast feeding after a breast lift — that is if your breasts produce milk and all the milk ducts are intact. The problem is that some surgical techniques involved in the lift will sever the milk ducts — and it is problematic whether they will re-attach themselves.
The best thing to do is to try — if you can express milk from the nipples, then you should be successful in breast feeding.

Generally the answer is no, but depending on some techniques, you may be able to have some milk production
