This seems to be a common misconception about breast reduction.
During a breast reduction procedure your nipples are never disconnected from the supporting breast tissue.
Your nipples will be repositioned and if you choose they can be reduced in size to match the reduced size of your new breasts but they are never detached from your body during the procedure.
