Breast Reduction without nipples being moved?

I would like to have a breast reduction, but do not want to have my nipples moved. Is this possible? I am 36DDD and would like to be size B.

I not sure if you meant without removing the nipples and replacing as a graft. Unless you only want a reduction in breast tissue and the skin not tightened, the nipples would stay were they are and your breast would most likely hang or sag even more. After a consultation with a plastic surgeon, you would able to find out if the nipple and areola can be relocated to a lifted position by keeping them still attached thereby most like preserving sensation.

An examination would most likely be required to answer your question. Many patients with large breasts have sagging of the breast or breast ptosis. A lift is usually performed as part of the breast reduction to place the nipple in a more proportioned/appealing position. Consider a consult with an ASAPS Surgeon in your area to address your concerns.
