Breast Reduction Nipple Graft
We continue our recent vlog series on breast reduction advice this week with a look to nipple grafts. If you’re about to undergo treatment for a reduction or maybe if you’re currently assessing your options and the results you could see, this video has been created to better inform you on what to expect and to tackle the changes that you’ll have to consider.
As you’ll see, breast reduction surgery is different for every person depending on what the size of the initial breast is. For larger breasts sometimes when undergoing surgery it is not possible to achieve a smaller size without needing a nipple graft. Free nipple grafts are offered as part of the treatment to ensure proportion in the changes seen. During this process the nipple is removed and the breast is then reshaped before the replacement or nipple graft is positioned on the resized breast.
The video offers examples of breast reduction nipple graft changes and how the nipple itself is impacted by the procedure. Before undergoing this surgery, it is always best to discuss the pros and cons of nipple grafts during your initial consultation. Your surgeon will be able to outline the risks imposed whilst providing advice on what would be best for your reduction in relation to your size and shape.
