Does A Breast Augmentation Change Your Nipple Sensation
Yes, temporarily: Often, nipple sensitivity is increased initially. This can be way too much, at first. Within few weeks, this subsides toward normal. Unfortunately, breast augmentation can also cause permanent loss of nipple sensation on one or both sides, due to injury to the nerves in the breast.

What if my breasts are asymmetrical after breast reduction? If i end up with asymmetrical breasts or nipples after breast reduction, can it be fixed?
I : I am always careful to point out to all of my patients that natural asymmetries exist in every woman's breasts. Your surgeon's goal is to achieve the very best symmetry possible, but there will likely be some degree of asymmetry present after surgery as well. Early after surgery, asymmetry may be the result of post-procedural swelling, and i advise waiting for several months before making a final judgement regarding the appearance and symmetry of your breasts. If an unacceptable degree of asymmetry persists, minor revisional procedures can certainly be performed to improve your cosmetic outcome. Some revisional procedures may be covered by your medical insurance. All the best, dr. Skourtis. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
