About Nipple Reduction
If you want to reduce the size of your nipple, a nipple reduction in New York may be an option to consider. If you feel uncomfortable about your nipples, you can get their size reduced to achieve a more proportionate appearance. This procedure can be done in combination with other male breast surgeries or as a standalone procedure.
This page deals with nipple size only and not the areola. The nipple itself consists of ducts that extend from glands. Under a microscope, these glands resemble grapes while the ducts look like stems. Their function in females is to carry milk. Male patients have the same nipple structure as females, however without the lactating function. Male nipples share this structure with female nipples due to the early stages of infancy, before gender is determined.
Nipples have different looks as far as size, length and width. Additionally, they can be flat, inverted or cylindrical in shape. Most males have an areola of about 1 to 1 1/2″ in diameter and their nipple is typically small, narrow and short, which contribute to an overall masculine appearance. Males can suffer from deformed and abnormally shaped nipples that may be long, wide or a combination of both. When this deformity occurs in men it is termed “puffy nipples” and it can be easily and safely corrected by nipple reduction surgery when performed by an experienced Gynecomastia Surgeon.
As with all cosmetic surgery, results are most gratifying when expectations are realistic.
You may be a good candidate for nipple reduction if you want to reduce the length or width of your nipples. If you want to reduce puffy, stretched, sagging, elongated, or big nipples, this surgical procedure may be for you.
If you have piercings, those may have to be redone after getting a nipple reduction surgery.
Ideal candidates are in good overall health without medical issues, especially circulatory and blood-clotting conditions. It is also important to have a positive outlook and realistic expectations.
During your consultation with Dr. Mordcai Blau, a physical examination of your nipples will be performed. Your medical history will be discussed, including past surgeries, current medications, and pre-existing conditions. You will then be asked about your desired results. Dr. Blau will then create a personalized treatment plan for you.
There are different techniques that can be used for this procedure. Dr. Blau will determine the best option depending on your anatomy.
To start your nipple reduction sugery, markings will be made before local anesthesia is administered. Then, Dr. Blau will make incisions and remove excess tissue. Finally, the incisions will be closed once enough tissue has been removed to achieve the best results.
After your nipple reduction procedure, you will need a short recovery period. You will be asked to wear compression garments to reduce the swelling. Pain and bruising can be expected but should disappear quickly.
Some patients are able to return to work after a few days. However, avoid strenuous exercises and heavy lifting for several weeks to ensure proper healing.
