A nipple reduction procedure can help you reduce the prominence, size, and/or shape of your nipples—enhancing the overall look of your breasts and increasing your confidence in your appearance.
The other technique is a reduction of the areola, the dark pigmentation surrounding the nipple.
Nipple reduction surgery features two primary techniques, which can be performed together or separately. One technique reduces the size of the actual nipple,
which may be too wide or too long.
Areola reduction surgery can help if the areola is too large, puffy, or out of proportion to the breast—or if there is a lack of symmetry between the left and right nipples.
Overly large nipples can be the result of genetics, breastfeeding, or aging, but whatever the reason, nipple reduction surgery may be able to help if you are unhappy with the shape, size, and/or prominence of your nipples.
What to Expect
The areola and nipple areas can be reduced during the same procedure, or only one may be reduced.
During the nipple reduction surgery, your plastic surgeon will minimize length by removing a section of the tip and/or minimize width by reducing the circumference beneath the skin surface.
To reduce the areola circumference, the surgeon will create a circular incision around the areola and remove a section of it, leaving a circular scar that will fade in time.
Following a nipple reduction, you may experience bruising and numbness, which will fade and subside over the following days. Most patients can resume normal activities within two days of their procedure. While the results of the surgery are permanent, the breasts can still sag over time due to normal aging.
People have reported the following benefits:
- Long-lasting results
- Minimal scarring
- Improved proportion of the nipples to the breasts
- Symmetry between left and right nipples
- Enhanced self-esteem and body image
