and there is!
I had my nipples checked out by my plastic surgeon again, and he (again) told me to wait and see how they turn up (clear throat) after the infection disappears, but that they’ll likely need to be done again. It looks like (crossed fingers) he could do the same minimal procedure under local anaesthetic. Oh heaven on earth let this be the case, otherwise, I’m stuck with some ‘wee nipples of the rouge variety. Worse things.
