There is mild surgical discomfort, bruising, swelling, and nipple sensitivity for about 2-3 weeks after surgery. The alterations in nipple sensitivity may occasionally be long lasting. Permanent scars are present but vary according to the technique used for surgery. Most of the techniques we utilize allow for breast feeding and the preservation of nipple sensation.

Although uncommon, complications can occur and include bleeding, infection, delayed healing with skin or nipple loss, asymmetry, widened and prominent scars and rarely the need for additional surgery.
