Bilateral Reduction with anchor incision, is it normal for my areola to look like this? (photo)

Thanks for your photo, I am sorry to see you are having a healing issue. You are having tissue loss of the nipple and areola. This is a rare but possible complication of breast reduction. Continue to be followed closely by your surgeon. The unhealthy tissue will have to be removed and a new nipple created. Again, this bears close follow up. Please call your PS and make a forward plan.
