Tear drop shaped nipples
They may improve a little bit, but you will likely need a revision .THis is often a minor procedure, but you need to wait about 6 months or so.
Is very common after a lift +/- augmentation. It appears you have a very good result 3-4 weeks post-op. The little tear drop shape is very common during these procedures. Allow some time for things to settle, if things don't round out to your liking a minor revision in the office under local could easily be performed.
Nipple areolar distortion is a known issue after breast lift with or without a breast implant. It really depends on the natural forces on your skin and this can be unpredictable at times. This can be revised at a later date to improve your results.Best Wishes,Nana Mizuguchi, MD
Post-Op Healing with Nipples and Scars
Healing will go on for 2-3 months for the early period. There may be some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. Sensation will be abnormal. Scars will be changing.
If my patients have concerns that something is unusual about their healing process, it is important for them to call the office and discuss these concerns or come in to be examined. #Hypertrophic or #keloid scars can be a problem. The worst are usually under the breast with an #AnchorLift or inverted “T”. These can be treated like all thickened scars with re-excision, laser, kenalog/5-FU injections, creams, silicone strips and other methods to reduce and improve healing. While you are still early on in the healing process you should not hesitate to visit your surgeon again with any questions or concerns about your incisions and scars. Best of luck to you!
This is a technical limitation of the design and execution of this surgery. It is not desirable for the nipples to have this shape. It may improve with time.
