Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
This woman needed a breast reduction desperately! At my New York practice, she complained about terrible back, neck, and shoulder pains, as well as bad rashes under the folds of her breasts. Interestingly, her nipple sensation improved with the operation. Plastic surgeons think this happens because there is less tension on the nerves with the reduced breast weight.

Dr. Sterry has never removed a woman's nipple for a breast reduction! In fact, this patient's nipple sensation improved after the operation.
She was back to work in 10 days but said she could have gone back sooner.
