Will BA change my nipple size?

After breastfeeding my two kids (although I'm done with that now), I noticed my nipples are still larger and darker than they were before I got pregnant. I'm wondering if having a BA will make them even bigger, or will they pretty much stay the same? can you make them smaller during the surgery and still maintain sensation? Thanks!!

Response to: Will BA change my nipple size?

BA can make the areola look a bit bigger and make the nipple project a bit more. This can be adjusted at the time of a breast augmentation and likely will not change sensation but does involve a scar all the way around the nipple/areolar complex and BA in itself CAN cause a change in nipple sensation... so there is no guarantee that any form of breast augmentation will not affect the nipple sensation but would not expect that a change in areola size would impact this risk greatly.
