Breast Surgery Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Breast Surgery FAQ

Breast Reduction / Lift

Will I lose nipple sensation from my breast reduction?

There is a risk of losing nipple sensation although this is not always the case.

Is the nipple disconnected during breast reduction?

This is not usually the case except with extremely large breast reductions. The nipple is not removed in our practice.

Can large breast reductions be done with a short scar?

Yes, this is possible, but the skin tone must be good and the patient must be an appropriate candidate.

What is the difference between a breast lift and a reduction?

Usually breast lifts are cosmetic operations designed to restore the youthful appearance of the breast. Breast reductions are performed to reduce breast size for the relief of back, neck, and shoulder pain.
