Breast feeding and sensation changes with an incision around the nipple

Pt. Query:

Hi there! i’m looking at getting a breast augmentation. I love all of your before and after photos and have seen alot of good reviews online. However, when i called, the soonest they could get me in for a consultation is in three weeks, the busiest doctor i have seen/called so far. I am concerned with how busy you are and am curious how hard it is to get in after the surgery. Also what are you experiences with going through the nipple and sensitivity and breast feeding? thank you for you time!

Dr. Yates Response:

Don’t worry about the followups we are very accommodating.  The scheduling line is not allowed to double book our appointments so that we have some ability to see people that need to be seen.  Call and talk to one of my assistants and I am sure they can get you seen sooner than 3 weeks. (801) 773-4840 ext 3441.

Regarding the areolar incision, there is a greater likelihood of problems with sensation and breast feeding and if these are an issue at all I would recommend the crease incision.  The percentage of risk is somewhere around 5-10% for sensation and 15% for breast feeding.
