Length: Approximately 2 to 3 hours.
Anesthesia: Usually general.
In/Outpatient: Usually outpatient.
Side Effects: Temporary bruising, swelling, some mild discomfort, numbness, and dry/tender breast skin.
Risks: Unfavourable scarring with keloid formation is possible. In addition skin loss, infection, unevenly positioned nipples (asymmetry), and the possibility of permanent loss of feeling in the nipples and/or the breasts.
Recovery: One week for work, 3-4 weeks for strenuous activities. The fading of scars may take several months to one year.
