Painful areolas 2 years post areola reduction surgery, possibly from stitching?
7 months ago
I had areola reduction 2 years ago and its feels painful to touch and it feels so tight and gets really stiff and constricted in the cold, i was wondering if this looks like it could be from permanent sutures around the areola i have no idea ?

Thank you for your question.
I would recommend contacting your original surgeon. It is hard to determine by your photos, but the symptoms you are describing could be from scar tissue from the original procedure. Good luck.
