Nipples Too High After Breast Reduction

I had a breast reduction procedure in Nov, 2007....

I had a breast reduction procedure in Nov, 2007. Only last year did I notice that my nipples were at least 1" if not 2" higher than where they are normally supposed to be.

I am very happy and satisfied with my surgery, but now I fear this will be another problem and perhaps not repairable, or will leave unnecessary scars. Its unsightly and is starting to make me self-concious again.

Is there anything I can do about this?


If you need revision and want to be decreased in size further then discuss that with your surgeon. He Can do that

Most probably what happened is that over the 2 years your breast has bottomed out or the breast tissue drooped (pseudoptosis) causing the nipples to look high. May need surgocal revision. Which could be like the original reduction surgery

Hopefully that wouldn't involve going a size down yet again.

My surgeon is very experienced and very nice and professional.
