Will a donut lift effect nipple sensation?

I was told that an incision around the areoles can cause loss of sensation. Is this the case? I don't like the idea of having scars for a minor lift, if I'm borderline.

Usually a donut lift will not impact sensation because this is usually a skin only procedure and the deeper tissue is usually not violated. If an implant is added then the implant dissection may.
