During pregnancy, the breasts vary greatly. The breast responds to some women very sensitive touches, so that at times, wearing clothes is a pain. After a few months, the body on the hormonal changes has largely set and it is significantly better.

Simultaneously with the increase in the hormones estrogen and progesterone breast begins to grow. This produces milk glands, tissues and blood vessels, which prepare the breast on the new task to the care of the baby.

Nipples OP

Before you decide OP for a nipples you be assured, that no other children want to breastfeed or are potential problems at an early stage deal. The adjustment can cause by the OP, that breastfeeding is not more easily.

Operations to reduce the size of her nipples are uncomplicated operations under local anesthesia or washed under general anesthesia may be performed. A sedation or a general anaesthetic are usually not necessary. If you choose general anesthesia should be expected hospital stay with a tag.

During the operation, performed a cut at the edge of the nipple itself and a further cut in the desired size. After the 2 cuts, removes the upper skin between them and the skin stitched back.

Operate large nipple

If the nipple is too big and no breast firming this is planned, the nipple at the previous point can remain. Otherwise, the nipple are cut off without doing the milk ducts to hurt and then to the desired new position offset.

Little shrink nipples

Only slightly enlarged nipples performs the cut directly at the nipples, so that the cutting scars are later difficult to see.

The nipple can increase again during the healing phase. The surgeon uses a thread to reduce the skin tension after the surgery and to prevent the enlargement of the nipples.

Nipples pain

Complaints arise especially with nipples that have invaded and sometimes cause inflammation. Usually too short gland ducts are after pregnancy in this type of nipples, so that the nipple is pulled this inward and sunken effect.

The pain of the breast during pregnancy be caused above all by the following factors:

  • Breast growth
  • Greater blood flow to the chest
  • Increased sensitivity of the breast

After breast reduction surgery completely different side effects than during pregnancy can be observed

  • Decreased sensitivity of the nipples
  • Wound healing
  • Sensiblitaetsstoerungen

Modeling of the area on the nipple with autologous fat

In rare cases, it may be that you additionally so to must model the area on the nipple, that filler in the form of fat is necessary.

The fat on the previously agreed sections with a cannula in a particular tissue-sparing procedure is removed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. The proportion of suitable fat cells for the transplant can be increased through the gentle procedure. Then prepared the fat cells in a special process.

The prepared fat cells are then injected to the appropriate locations in the chest. While the surgeon with lots of experience must spread evenly the fat cells into the tissue, so that as many cells to grow properly and a homogeneous skin and tissue image is created. This doesn't work in the first OP have accordingly to be injected.

A misapplication is the risk that too many fat cells die off and are removed from the body. This can cause unsightly results in terms of shape and appearance of skin. In the case the doctor must then schedule more surgery for correction. Even with the removal of fat cells, the surgeon can make mistakes and to selectively perform the extraction, so that dents.

The transplantation of fat cells

Adipose tissue contains stem cells, which positively affects the skin structure and elasticity. The process of extraction of the fat cells should be optimized as far as little fat cells and tissues are injured. Injured fat cells should be filtered out in preparation for the transplant. After the injection are the transplanted fat cells first had no connection to the blood vessels in the connective tissue.

The surgeon must inject to the fat cells, that fat cells can grow well and it will not be a one-off reduction of fat cells. How high is the percentage of fat cells that do not grow depends mainly from the experience of the surgeon, the methods of processing of fat cells and the tissue characteristics of the patient.
