I had a reduction. My right nipple is inverted now. I think an incision at my nipple (not my areola) has not healed. What gives?

The tip of my nipple has a white pigment (which, is very noticeable to me considering I'm African American). I know I need to see a doctor about this but my finances aren't quite what they were before. Plus, I'm a bit ashamed that I let it go for so long. There was a bit of shame in the procedure in the first place. Lipo for gynecomastia isn't really something you talk to your bros about.

Nipple pigmentation issue


If your nipple has some pigmentation changes, you may want to wait a full year to see if the color returns. If not, it can often be tattooed.
