It Has Been 3 Months Since my Breast Reduction Surgery and my Nipples Have Started to Bleed. Any Ideas?

Nipple, where the milk ducts are.

We are always concerned about bleeding from the nipple area as it can be a sign of a pathologic condition.  You should be evaluated by a general surgeon or your GYN.

The bleeding you are experiencing from you nipples may have nothing to do with your breast reduction.  It would be very important to have this evaluated.  I would notify your breast reduction surgeon as well as your OB/GYN doctor.
