In this edition of our nipple reduction FAQ series, we cover the topic of recovery. Recovery is obviously an important piece of information regarding any procedure, so it seemed appropriate for us to make one for this series.
We get a brief overview on the actual procedure, hearing it is not too invasive and is usually performed under a local anaesthetic. You may have some soreness for up to six weeks, and swelling for as long as four. Obviously this is an estimate, as everyone heals differently, and it can also depend on the strain you are put under in your job and homelife. The more you rest initially, the quicker your recovery will be.
