Nipple Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
6 Weeks After Free Nipple Graft, There are Holes that Have Opened that are Leaking a Little, Should I be Concerned?
FNG 6 weeks, no bolsters, criss/cross stiches instead, looks great, pink etc., but last week 2 or 3 teeny holes have opened in nipple or areola area, w/ scant leaking red or pale yellow, both sides, no swelling, no blackened skin, etc. Skin under holes looks healthy. 1st one healed in a week, use vaseline , cover all with no-stick dressings, and have since surgery, 24/7. Change that twice daily. Grafts still sore. Never smoked, (5.4 1/2, 145 pounds), sports bras 24/7. Holes OK? Cover OK?
