Both Men and Women Sometimes Want To Reduce The Size of Their Nipples.
If your nipples droop, are too large for your breasts, protrude to the point where they always show behind your clothing, are different in shape or size, or they are just too prominent for your liking, you are not alone. Many men and women are simply born with large, misshapen nipples. Genetics are to blame, not you or anything you have done.
Nipple reduction surgery at Midas Touch is the answer to these problems. It is a safe, effective and easy procedure. Nipple reduction surgery improves the look of your nipples, and can transform one or both of your nipples into a normal size and shape.
Nipple reduction surgery does not affect the ability for a woman to breastfeed.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Nipple reduction surgery at Midas Touch is an outpatient procedure that can be completed in the comfort of our office. It typically takes no longer than an hour to perform and you will be given a local anesthetic (you won't be put to sleep).
Your Midas Touch surgeon will determine which part of the nipple needs to be reduced, the length, width, or both.
If your nipples are too long or stick out too far they can be shortened. In this case the tip of the nipple will be removed and sutured closed. Sometimes the skin along the neck of the nipple will also need to be removed. In this case the tip of the nipple is sutured to the bottom of the nipple to shorten the nipple length. If the nipple is too thick a small pie-shaped wedge will be removed from the undersurface of the nipple. This reduces the circumference of the nipple.
The healing process is very fast. You can return to your normal activities in a day or so, and the entire healing process is complete in about three weeks.Â You can even shower the day after your surgery. Your sutures will dissolve on their own. Scarring, if there is any, is minimal or barely noticeable.
