WHAT IS A NIPPLE REDUCTION? - BREAST SURGERY
A nipple reduction is a surgical procedure which is performed to reduce nipple size.
IS THIS PROCEDURE SUITABLE FOR ME? - BREAST SURGERY
Nipples may protrude as if they are always erect, be enlarged, or be droopy and long which for some people can cause embarrassment and make certain clothes uncomfortable to wear.
The area around the nipple (the areolar) may also be enlarged or uneven in shape.
Breast feeding can contribute to changing the shape and size of nipples, making them longer and less attractive.
Enlarged nipples can have an effect on the way people feel about themselves, whether naked or fully clothed.
A consultation with the surgeon will be able to determine if the procedure is suitable for you and will enable you to come to an informed decision.
