“Can I get a breast lift without removing my nipple piercings?”, a worried RealSelf user asked.
“All metal piercings need to be removed before surgery for the use of an electrocautery in the operating room. If your piercing is close to the surgical site as in your case with the nipple rings, we remove them before surgery, have them sterilized during and reinsert immediately after surgery under a sterile dressing. Breast of luck.”, Aristocrat’s certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S explained.
