What is Breast Nipple Reduction?

Nipple reduction or Areola reduction surgery is requested by both women and men. For most men and women, long or over sized nipples can be an embarrassment. Nipple reduction surgery is a safe and quick way to address this problem permanently. However, more women request a nipple reduction because breast feeding has permanently altered the shape and size of their nipples, making it longer and somewhat droopy.

Nipple Reduction is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the nipple and the breast. Many people confuse the areola (the darker pigmented skin around the nipple) with the nipple (the projected part of the breast). This cosmetic plastic procedure is designed to reshape or reduce the size of the nipple alone. It can also be combined with an Areola Reduction.

Risks on Nipple Reduction Surgery

In Breast Nipple Reduction, complications are rare. However, like in any surgery, there is a chance of infection, scarring or loss of nipple sensation. These happen rarely too.
