I can only speak to the Dr I saw in the group. Others may be more competent. I had breast reduction performed by Dr. Steven Lynch a year ago and I was in good health. During the operation he botched the nipple and had to completely take it off and reattach. The care of this nipple after the surgery was complex and time consuming for me. A year later it still looks awful. He didn't insert a drain and in the hospital I had a lot of fluid and blood leakage. I passed out at one point. Once home I became engorged in my right breast and it had to be reopened in his office to get out the excess blood and fluid. That breast is now noticably smaller than the left. I wish I never had this surgery.
