I appreciate your question.

Your results look great.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.  Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic plastic surgery.

 

Best of luck!

Nipple Stretch After Benelli

Nipple (really areola) enlargement after a Benelli lift can be a problem if the procedure is done with a larger breast or with an implant that is too heavy for the skin to hold. I think you were a good candidate for the procedure and that your results are as expected. Please keep us posted !

Your results seem to look very good right now. Some tissue stretch and changes are expected after surgery.

So far looking good

So far things look great, Your doctor may have used a permanent suture which helps keep the size from stretching out. You have an excellent result. Silicone scar pads for the areola may help you but need to be worn all the time for 2 months. Good Luck!
