Did they just trim the end and suture it?? Would you mind posting a picture of after? Lost any sensitivity with it? I've had to consults. Both Ps use a different technique ... Thx you so much!!

Now my skin is getting irritated with the adhesive from the paper tape so I switched to a regular bandaid and switched placement direction and my skin is still irritated! When I asked how long recovery would be for the nipple reduction at my pre op my PS said the same amount of time as my BA. I assumed 5-7 days, NOT! It's taking much longer than I expected. No pain, no gain :-) other than that I'm just glad they are much smaller!
I'm happy to hear you are happy they are smaller!! Sorry about the pain did your Ps just trim the ends off and suture?

Honestly, I was a bit freaked out! It looked like they were just chopped off! I've been reading about techniques online and most said that they would trim and flip it inside. Ummm..mine seriously don't looked flipped inward. I've also noticed that they are super sensitive even when I'm applying neosporin on. Thank goodness it's not a painfull sensitivity.

I don't think he did. I don't see any sutures.
