Introduction to Nipple Reduction

In women who underwent breastfeeding especially, the deflation of breasts and enlargement of nipples further creates a stronger contrast between the two and accentuate the changes. A combination of breast augmentation with nipple reduction can effectively restore a youthful look.

Nipple reduction is a safe and effective procedure for most men and women who are self-conscious of the size of their nipples and desire an improvement. Patients undergoing the procedure should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations about the possibilities of the surgery.
How is Nipple Reduction Performed?
Depending on the dimension of the enlarged nipple, different techniques can be used to reduce specifically the width, height, or both of the nipple.

There is very little pain from this procedure and can be done completely under local anesthesia.
