Nipple Reduction Procedure
The procedure used for a nipple reduction depends to a degree upon the anatomy of the nipple enlargement and the amount of nipple reduction desired by the patient. There are many methods used by various surgeons, including removal of just the top of the nipple, which is then closed with tiny incisions. Nipple reduction may also involve removing a cylinder of skin around the neck of the nipple, then pushing the nipple back into the breast tissue and suturing the skin closed. Sensation is almost always normal following a nipple reduction, and the ability to breast feed can usually be easily preserved.
If the procedure is not being combined with other cosmetic surgeries, then a nipple reduction is often performed in the physician's office with a local anesthetic. There is very little discomfort, and most patients having a nipple reduction will not require any type of sedative.
