Nipple Reduction is a surgical procedure which reduces the length and projection of the nipples. This small change can have a large impact on the overall appearance of the breasts. Elongated nipples can be due to genetics, hormonal changes, and post breast-feeding. Nipple reduction is a well tolerated procedure with a high patient satisfaction for both female and male patients.
We prefer to use a de-epithelialization technique whenever possible. This technique takes slightly longer to perform but it heals with a nearly invisible scar.
Smaller, more proportionately sized nipples, improved comfort, and confidence in appearance.
- Pre-operative consultation to discuss goals and procedure details.
- Surgery is often performed under local anesthesia.
- Reshaping and removal of excess nipple tissue to achieve desired size.
