could I get a breast reduction revision??

Hi, I had my breast reduction last June of the 4th. I wasn't really to happy with the results once I saw them, but the physician assistant told me it's to early just wait 6 months and see. The first issue I had was my nipples aren't even, one is lower the the other. Then I have these fold on the side of my left breast since the first time I saw my new boobs. The left breast is bigger

Hello lyn, It is certainly possible to have a revision to address issues with your breast reduction. The nipples can be evened out, and a difference in sizes can be adjusted as needed. Since it i has not been a year, it is best to return to the surgeon who did your surgery for an evaluation and discuss why you are unhappy. It is also possible to get a second opinion. It is not uncommon to do revisions following breast reduction. Best wishes to you.

Thank you for sharing your question. Yes it is technically possible to have a revision of your procedure to further improve upon your results but best to wait at least a years time to see your final results and to make a future procedure more predictable in terms of outcome. Continue to discuss your concerns with your surgeon or seek second opinions if you have lost confidence in him/her
