Nipple Reduction Surgery Is A Surgical Procedure For An Issue That Some Women Can Face.
Nipples can often become enlarged due to hormonal changes, genetics, pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight gain. Enlarged nipples may result in discomfort or the inability to wear certain clothing for fear of exposing the nipples.
This procedure addresses the width and length of the enlarged nipples and, if required, can be performed in combination with a mastopexy (breast lift) to help reduce the general size and circumference of enlarged areolas.
Nipple reduction surgery is usually performed under general anaesthetic and takes approximately one hour — patients can expect to go home shortly following the completion of the surgery.
During the procedure, the excess length of the nipple will be removed and, in some cases, the width of the nipple will be reduced. Nipple reduction can also be combined with another breast procedure (such as a mastopexy (breast lift), augmentation mammoplasty (breast augmentation) or reduction mammoplasty (breast reduction) if desired.
Each patient’s concerns are taken into consideration and Dr Lim will discuss your individualised procedure plan with you during the consultation process.
Our goal is to make your experience as supportive as possible — Dr Lim and the My Klinik staff are always willing to answer any questions you may have.
