Areola and nipple reduction surgery
Excessively large nipples can lead to a complex
For some women, excessively large nipples can lead to a complex, and the fact of getting dressed may be a daily fight to hide their nipples.
Big nipples do not have to go together with large areolas. Large nipples are visible through clothes and can even cause pain or hypersensitivity to friction.
The solution is a minor surgical procedure under local anesthesia.
Nipple reduction surgery does not require more than one hour and it is carried out under local anesthesia. The length she wants is discussed with the patient.
The scar is perfectly hidden at the base of the nipple and remains completely unnoticed, even naked.
The patient can return to her social-working life immediately, although she must take into account not to make strong physical efforts during the first days. And can go back to regular physical exercise approximately 10 days after surgery.
Nipple reduction surgery can be combined with areola reduction surgery if needed. As there is no visible scar in the nipple reduction, the areola reduction leaves a scar around it.
Many women that come for a consultation about this surgery ask about how nipple reduction can affect baby breastfeeding. Women that undergo nipple reduction can breastfeed their babies normally. In very rarely cases breastfeeding is affected by the surgical procedure.
Results are highly satisfactory and patients who have undergone this surgery lose their fear to show this part of the body that had caused such a complex.
