I was reading and wondered if you found a surgeon to solve your problem ?

I am truly sorry to hear it...I had a BR in 08 as well as my Areola grafted...and my PS did such a fantastic job you couldnt even tell he actually resized my areola...my scars are minimal...my PS was just very very neat...my nipples were perfectly rounded...not sure if you are willing to travel but my PS is Dr. Steven Belinkie..in Connecticut!

Hi Owasso,
Sorry to hear about your problems. I just had my surgery a few days ago & my drains came out today.
I also had nipples graphs done with my reduction as well as lipo on my abdomen & flanks.
Right now I am still all covered up with the special bra from the hospital & a compression thing over my stomach. I am having some pain & discomfort but I can work around O.K. I am hoping that by 4 weeks I will be able to attend a promised event up in Ct.
Let me know how you are doing.
Hang in there.

Hi Owasso -- Firstly, welcome to RealSelf's breast reduction community. I'm so sorry for all that you've gone through but this is a great place to share your experience with others and I hope you're able to find the help and support you're looking for. You can meet other BR patients in the forum here.

Secondly, and most importantly, there are a lot of things doctors can do to reconstruct your nipple. You may want to post a photo in the Doctor Q&A Forum so you can get some professional opinions (over 1,000 doctors participate in that forum).

Please hang in there and lean on us for support if you need to. We're all here for you. *hugs*
