Breast Numbness in Tissue and Nipple Area - Chattanooga, TN

The pros of this surgery was to correct severely sagging breasts which caused irratation to my shoulders when trying to pull them up with a bra.

The cons apparently the loss of feeling that you can get from the surgery. I was told that the numbness could occur but in very rare cases. The doctor is now just stating "You signed the papers, you knew the risks".

I have numbness in my right breast after a breast lift and augmentation of 280 cc silicone implants. How much time do in realility is needed for this nerve to heal? I am 3 weeks out of surgery. Do I need to assume this feeling will never come back or do I have a good chance that it will? I am not so worried about nipple but breast tissue numbness is very noticeable.

I know what you are talking about. It is quite depressing that the negative aspects are not realized until after the fact.
hmmm, I have had no sensitivity loss at all in my nipples. I've had a lift and implants 2 weeks ago. Wonder what causes some women to have it, and some not. I can feel everything :s

The surgery has been about 14 months ago now. I still have some pain and numbness in the right breast.
Because I waited until I was older the breast are sagging again but nothing like they were. I would like to say that this is not a one time fix for anyone that wants to stay looking young.

I will comment that I do like the improvement in the looks of my breast especially with clothes on. I guess all in all it did help my self esteem.

then they make you sign all the papers so quick that you don't really get a chance to READ it like you should! cuz they just paraphrase whats in it but leave out the important fine lines! wishing you all the best!
