Nipple Reduction Surgery

Nipple reduction is a quick, safe surgical procedure that can reduce the size of one or both nipples, to improve their appearance. It can shorten both nipple lengths and reduce the width, creating more balance between the nipple and areola.

Nipple Reduction Surgery

The average length of a nipple reduction surgery is under an hour. After creating a tiny, circular incision all the way around the nipple, the surgeon trims away any extra tissue and reshapes the remaining tissue to make the nipples smaller while being careful to preserve their symmetry. You won’t feel any pain during the nipple reduction procedure itself, since local anesthetic will keep you comfortable.

The Benefits of Nipple Reduction Surgery:

  • It can make droopy, stretched nipples and large nipples smaller and more proportional.
  • It’s a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery that doesn’t require significant downtime.    
  •  The procedure is considered to be safe, with fewer risks and potential side effects than most types of plastic surgery.

Preparing for your Surgery:

  • Smoking should be stopped several weeks before your operation.
  • Maintaining a healthy weight can help patients avoid further complications.
  • Regular exercise can also help (but make sure you consult your GP first).
  • There should be no shaving or waxing of the area to be cut in the week leading up to the operation.
  • Having a bath or shower on the day of the operation is a good idea.

Nipple Reduction Surgery Recovery:

You won’t need to take time off work, but you’ll have some tenderness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort during the healing process. The swelling should start to resolve after the first week, though it could take up to six weeks to fully heal.

Nipple Reduction Surgery FAQ

Does a Nipple Reduction leave scars?2023-04-06T11:26:30+01:00

As with any type of surgery, a nipple reduction will leave scars where incisions are done. However, any nipple scarring is typically well-hidden and blends in. Following the aftercare recommendations you are given might help reduce any risk of visible scarring following your nipple reduction surgery. Scars dissipate with time.

Is Nipple Reduction painful?2023-04-06T11:27:52+01:00

Following the procedure, you may have some soreness, swelling, and moderate bruising; this is totally normal. After the initial 3 to 5 days, it ought to start to settle. You should take it easy for the first few days and utilise over-the-counter medicines to ease any discomfort.

The greatest position to sleep in while recovering is on your back, although any pain from your nipple reduction surgery should continue to subside as the tissues settle.

How long will a Nipple Reduction last?2023-04-06T11:28:54+01:00

Will I still have sensation in my Nipples after Surgery?2023-04-06T11:29:55+01:00

Will I still be able to Breastfeed after Nipple Reduction Surgery?2023-04-06T11:37:50+01:00

Even though breastfeeding may still be successful in some circumstances following nipple reduction surgery, it may not be viable if the fundamental structure of the nipple was damaged.
