Women who have large nipples with excessive projection may desire a simple nipple reduction surgery. Excess nipple tissue can be easily removed in the office or at the same time as any breast surgery in the operating room. The office procedure is simple and takes less than one hour with minimal downtime and immediate results. Prominent nipples that would otherwise show in tops,swim suits,or bras become easily concealed and less noticeable. If you plan on breast feeding, this should be done ideally after pregnancy and breast feeding.
If your areola are enlarged, they can be made smaller and more proportioned to your breast or nipple size in a similar procedure. This also can be done at the time of breast lift, breast reduction, breast augmentation with lift, or at the same time as nipple reduction.
