ANSWER

Wrinkles and areola irregularity after breast lift

We perform many breast lifts with and without implant placement in our San Francisco area practice. Some irregularity around the areola in the first few weeks is not uncommon. Soft tissue swelling and healing incisions can contribute to a lumpy bumpy look. In the vast majority of cases this goes away by 3-6 months. If you have persistent irregularity typically a quick in office procedure under local can correct small issues like this.
