Thank you for your question. Nipple/areola complex loss is, fortunately, a rare event. However, when it does occur it can be devastating. Risks vary with the size of the breast and the distance the nipple is being moved. Sit down and discuss your concerns with your surgeon. There are ways to mitigate the risk of nipple loss.
Consult with an experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area. Good Luck,
That is a possibility although extremely rare. It increases with the size of the patient and the size of the breasts. And option would be to look into the Scarless reduction where this is not seen. It's not an operation that's right for everyone but it's worth looking into.
The loss of the N/A complex is a severe complication of any breast surgery, though a very rare event it happens. Best to discuss in detail with your chosen surgeon...
