Is breast reduction revision possible?

I had reduction from DDD to D 10 months ago (lollipop procedure). One breast has more weight/volume and is heavier than is comfortable. A 2nd opinion was to have the original doctor just lipo the larger breast in the OR vs office. He said the risks associated with revision surgery weren't warranted. I'm not sure this will solve problem - my breast is larger overall, although one side clearly has more weight. If I choose an overall reduction, can this be done without "re-doing" the nipple/areola?

Depending where the excess tissue is, a revision certainly can be performed. If the nipple position is appropriate and the excess is toward the lower portion, then the nipple position would not have to be " re-done". Usually removal of the excess tissue can be done with liposuction but, if there is extra skin, it should be removed as well.

Your second opinion doctor may have just the right idea to achieve greater breast symmetry without having to undergo an entire redo surgery just when your incisions are probably settling in. Hopefully you can discuss with your original doctor and arrive at a simple, inexpensive solution!
