Tinea versicolor and breast reduction

Tinea versicolor is not likely to effect the results of a breast reduction. However, it may be associated with fungal infections and you may want to exclude this possibility prior to surgery.

Will Tinea Versicolor Effect Breast Reduction Surgery?

No, Tinea Versicolor will not affect your Breast Reduction surgery. I would recommend just washing it with something such as Selsun Blue, or another similar anti-infective agent
