Mushy nipple
« on: December 02, 2018, 12:53:08 AM »
Hi, I had gyne surgery a like 4 years ago. I’m almost 30. After much reading online, I see that it’s no walk in the park post-op. Many patients seem to have complications. I’ve had to go back a handful of times for a number of post-op issues, even years later. I don’t want to write a book though. Trying to keep this short and to the point.

Okay, so my right nipple is kind of mushy and feels kind of dull. I also have a pretty significant scar on the areola. My nipple seems lifeless. I’m not liking the cosmetic result. It rolls up a little bit when I flex or like, I don’t know how to explain, stretch/lower my shoulder or arm downward. Seems like the skin around this nipple is detached. I’ve endured many complications with my right pec while my left chest seems flawless and so perfect. 


Can my right nipple be fixed?

And I cannot see the same doctor again because he’s 300 miles away. Just don’t have time to travel that far anymore. What kind of doctor should I see locally that can fix this?

It seems as if you have a number of issues -- and it would be best to return to your surgeon for he knows what exactly was done.  It may be worth the trip to see your original surgeon because most plastic surgeons do not have the experience to deal with some of your concerns.  If that is not possible or desirable, then consider traveling for another opinion from a gyne expert in your area.

Good luck!

It has been a long time since your surgery and it sounds like you have several issues / concerns. It would be best to see your previous surgeon since he/she has the most knowledge of what was done. Otherwise you will need to make a consultation with a good gynecomastia surgeon. You should bring all of your OP notes from your previous surgeries to your new consultation. Good luck.

I agree with the other surgeons. Perhaps you can post some photos if they demonstrate your concern.
