Q:

I had a breast reduction done two months ago. I am pleased with the outcome but have one concern. Since the surgery, my both breasts are numb underneath my nipples. Can you tell me if this is normal and how long will it be before I get feeling back in them again?

A:

Is this between the nipple and the fold?  It takes several weeks to months for sensation to return after surgery.  It also depends on the technique used to perform the breast reduction.  Do you have a T incision or just a straight incision down the front of the breast?

A:

It not uncommon to experience diminished sensation of nipples, areolae, and/or breast skin after breast reduction.  This is most often temporary, but may be long lasting.  Rate of return of sensation is variable.  Numbness may persist for many months, or perhaps return in the next month or two.
