Breast Reduction: Q&AAsk a Question
Pus-filled Nipple & Areola? (photo)
PS did large breast reduction & lift on 12/5/12. Areas of areola and nipple look like they are made of pus that PS says are just scabs. Other areola (not in photo) also has very darkened, scabby-looking areas that PS says are also scabs. I had some congestion due to very large reduction so PS says the nipples are struggling but thinks they will make it. Should I be concerned about these pus-filled (looking) areas? There isn't too much drainage from them on my daily dressing changes. Thanks!
