3 month update to "puffy nipples"
« on: April 12, 2006, 11:56:41 AM »

I had my 3 month post op visit.  First let me clarify that when I wrote "puffy nipples" I was indeed mainly talking about the areola as I believe this is the problem which most of us are concerned with.  After 3 months there is NO change.  I am the exact same.  Again I had lipo and excision.  I will admit that I am still sore in this area so it's possible that there is still swelling causing them to remain puffy but I doubt it.  Most of you with success said they went flat and stayed flat shortly after surgery.   I asked the PS today and told him I am very concerned.  He then said to give it 3 more months (which I will and have no problem with) but I don't believe time will change things.  At the end of the meeting he then said that he didn't advise going back in because he already did an excision and going back in wouldn't help and may actually lead to abnormal contouring.  I believe he just simply didn't cut enough tissue out and unfortunately my options are to go to someone else or just live with it.   :-/

Sounds like he didn't excise enough of the gland out.

Who was your surgeon?

First, let me say: Don't Panic. We all really want to be done with our gyne, once and for all, it's very easy to get frustrated with a procedure that should produce instant results but often doesn't.

A couple questions: were your nipples flat immediately after surgery? I gather that's usually a good indication of approximately what they will look like once you've healed completely. Also, do you feel hard tissue underneath your nipples? If you do, and if it's sort of irregular and mostly around the incision line, then it's probably deep scar tissue. The best way to deal with this is to massage it aggressively. I've been doing this, and it's starting to produce good results after about 3-4 weeks.

My nipples also have not instantly flattened like some people's. But I have to say they are starting to show signs of minute improvement. So my advice is to hold out, be patient, and don't despair.

I had surgery last tuesday and my nipples were flat that day and have remained flat since. Knock on wood. So not sure what to tell you. I'd be concerned and upset myself as you spent a good penny to have this corrected. By no means just "live" with it. That is what you were trying to avoid by having this surgery to begin with, right?
