Tara Reid’s nipple areolar scar got her some attention. The scars shown look like those of a modified breast lift. She may be in the position of needing a larger version of the operation (full breast lift) to make things work. Some women won’t have a full breast lift worried about the scarring. Another issue might be her smoking history. Smoking can encourage poor scarring.
Her surgeon might be in a catch 22 here:
If he does the full lift operation there are more scars. If he does the lesser operation, she may look distorted. A full lift is more risky for smokers which might also be a factor.
It’s hard to tell with the “nipple slip picture” as the only one we have for evaluation. We don’t know much of what she looks like now much less what she looked like before her operation.
