Nipple sensation after breast reduction
Thank you for your question. Nipple sensation after reduction may be affected by many factors. How large are your breasts, what surgical technique will your surgeon use, how much sensation so you have now? Also, you must balance to desire for nipple sensation versus the pain relief and improvement in breast appearance and shape against one another. Most patients in my practice that want/need breast reduction have little nipple sensation prior to surgery. Most patients will lose some or all of that sensation. Good luck.
