What could be causing my nipple to bleed after a breast reduction?
A little bit of "bleeding" is often normal. There can be some "fat necrosis" that causes discharge that can look like bleeding. You always want to be watchful of possible complications, or minor issues at this point. It is always a good idea to check with your doctor or go to the nearest emergency department if things seem to be getting worse.
10 days post op, some advices:
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling. Kind regards
