My nipple has deflated after areola incision?
Doctor Answers 1
Change in areola contour
Any incisions on the breast, including around the areola, can effect the nipple contour. Depending on what surgery you had performed through the areolar incision, there may be changes to the underlying tissue that supports the nipple. Following up with your surgeon is recommended so options for further reconstruction can be discussed, if you are interested. Best of luck!
