What can I do?

Recently underwent an inverted nipple surgery which literally took 15 mins. as soon as I looked down I was confused because it looked nothing like anything I’d seen from doing a little of my own research. I immediately expressed my concerns and was sent home. “Too much swelling to tell” came for my follow up appointment and same thing. They don’t look right!!!

Procedure: Breast Reconstruction
Location: Gardnerville, NV

Let the area heal and the swelling to come down. It may need a revision

There are different techniques for nipple correction. Swelling may obfuscate the final results. That said, the nipple correction should help resolve the inversion by bolstering the underlying tissue without compromising the nipple sensation.
