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

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.
