Complications due to Breast reduction Surgery
• Loss of sensation over areola or nipple
• Skin of the areola and nipple may get devitalized and decay away, which is consequently corrected by further surgery. This is the most devastating complication after such a surgery and may happen more in women who smoke or who have very large breasts.
• Breast tissue or fat also may undergo 'necrosis' or decay of the cells.
• The breast may feel a lot firmer than before.
• It may not be possible to breast-feed a baby following a breast reduction and this has to be clearly understood before undergoing the surgery.
• Occasionally asymmetry of the breasts can result and revision surgeries may be needed.
