What is nipple reduction?
While many women are focused on reshaping the breasts, there are those that may also be concerned with the position and size of the nipples. Nipple reduction can enhance the results of a breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction by delivering nipples that are aesthetically balanced, symmetrical, and pleasing to look at. The surgery carefully preserves nipple sensation and sensitivity, so women do not have to worry about sacrificing safety or function for enhanced beauty.
How is nipple reduction performed?
An incision is made encircling the nipple through which Dr. Beale can remove excess tissue. The nipple is then reshaped and resized so that it is more proportionate to the breast. An additional incision can be made around the areola to help combat unevenness or asymmetry. As mentioned earlier, nipple reduction can be performed for patients of all genders who wish to improve the appearance of the chest and feel more confident and secure in their upper body’s appearance.

Who is a good candidate for nipple reduction?
Cosmetic surgery should always be pursued because it is something you truly want and not because of any outside pressures or influences. If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your nipples and you are interested in aesthetic surgery, a nipple reduction might be the right solution for your goals.
Good candidates are non-smokers who are mentally and physically healthy. They should be free from any serious medical conditions that might interfere with the surgery or its recovery, such as hypertension or bleeding disorders. Lastly, patients should be realistic in their expectations, understanding that nipple reduction can improve their appearance but may not necessarily lead to the “perfect” body.
What can I expect from my recovery?
After nipple reduction surgery, clients can typically resume normal activities within the first week, provided the surgery is performed on its own. If nipple reduction is undergone in tandem with breast augmentation, breast reduction, or a breast lift, then the total recovery time may extend by a week or two. Either way, it is important to abstain from vigorous exercise until cleared by Dr. Beale. This will help prevent complications and ensure your aesthetic results remain flawless.
You will receive a detailed aftercare plan and prescription pain medications. By following Dr. Beale’s instructions, you can expect your recovery to be smooth, seamless, and without incident.
