Is it safe to have liposuction in armpit area during a breast reduction operation? Could this cause the nipple to die?

Breast Reduction with Armpit liposuction, Is it safe?
Thanks for your question. It certainly is safe but it depends on how aggressive you are with the liposuction. If too much is done then yes it could compromise the circulation to the breast but for most cases, it is safe. I routinely do it for a better breast shape without issues to nipple as the blood supply to nipple is done differently. Good Luck.
All the best,
