Nipple Reduction Surgery
Enlarged nipples can make men and women feel uncomfortable about their appearance. Changes in the size of the nipples can occur from congenital conditions or pregnancy and breastfeeding. This can create anxiety and stress with sexual intimacy. Nipple reduction surgery can reduce the size of the nipples for a more aesthetically pleasing look.
Nipple Reduction Process
Nipple reduction surgery is an outpatient breast procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia in a couple of hours. You may resume normal activities within a week, as recommended by the doctor. The surgery process involves removing a portion of skin or nipple tissue to create a smaller and rounder surface. The surgery can be combined with other breast augmentation and repair procedures to enhance overall appearance.
The procedure may leave some scarring, which can blend into surrounding tissue over time. Incisions are typically placed where the darker part of the nipple can help make the scar virtually invisible. If necessary, Dr. Jeremy Nikfarjam will recommend special treatments to help reduce the appearance of scars.
When to Consider Nipple Reduction Surgery
Many individuals seek nipple reduction surgery to address certain complaints. These complaints generally involve nipples that are too big or long. Others may seek to correct nipples that are highly visible under clothing. A nipple reduction procedure can also correct sagging or damaged nipples as a result of breastfeeding. Nipples that are too small or inverted can be corrected using different plastic surgery techniques.
