Nipples pierced after breast reduction?
Congratulations on having undergone breast reduction procedure; this operation tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform. Your plastic surgeon will guide you when it comes to timing to proceed with nipple piercing; in my practice, I would likely ask that you wait about 3-6 months. Make sure that whoever is doing this procedure for you is reputable and utilizes sterile technique. Best wishes for an outcome you will be very pleased with .

I would double check with your operating surgeon, but you could probably get them pierced 6 weeks after surgery. Good luck!
