It Has Been 3 Months Since my Breast Reduction Surgery and my Nipples Have Started to Bleed. Any Ideas?

Nipple, where the milk ducts are.

Bleeding from the nipple area 3 months after a breast reduction

We are always concerned about bleeding from the nipple area as it can be a sign of a pathologic condition.  You should be evaluated by a general surgeon or your GYN.

Blood from nipples 3 months after breast reduction

The bleeding you are experiencing from you nipples may have nothing to do with your breast reduction.  It would be very important to have this evaluated.  I would notify your breast reduction surgeon as well as your OB/GYN doctor.
