Should I be concerned? Breast reduction over 1yr ago. Pus oozing from nipple. (photo)

This is unusual at this time and I recommend seeing your PS. This may well be fat necrosis although you may need an USS just to check that there isn't any underlying issues.
Pus one year after reduction
I agree with Dr Pousti re fat necrosis. You could also have a suture reaction if this has been an ongoing problem. However, the best place for diagnosis and treatment is in your plastic surgeon's office and you should be seen by him or her for appropriate treatment.

I am sorry to hear about the problem you are experiencing. Your plastic surgeon will be your best resource when it comes to accurate assessment and advice. Having said that, based on your description and photograph, I think that is very likely that you are dealing with fat necrosis that is gradually liquefying and making its way out. Best wishes.
