Many women are concerned about losing sensation in their nipples after breast surgery. Our skilled Atlanta breast surgeons take steps to avoid complications like loss of sensation. This is one of the many reasons it is important to select a qualified and experienced breast surgeon.
You may experience some numbness in the days and weeks following your surgery. This is a normal part of the healing process. Permanent loss of sensation in your nipples, however, is a complication of breast augmentation surgery that our breast surgeons guard against.
Breast implants that are too large may stretch your skin too much and cause nerve damage. Our breast surgeons at Marietta Plastic Surgery will work with you to make sure you are selecting a good size implant for your figure.
Placement of your implant and incision type can also affect your risk for losing some nipple sensitivity. We will discuss all of your options and associated risks to make sure you are making an informed decision and selecting the right options for the results you want to achieve.
