When patients think of plastic surgery, they often think of the more common procedures that are performed such as liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast augmentation. But plastic surgeons can also help with a variety of other less-advertised procedures for both men and women. This includes nipple reduction surgery. Dr. Rachel Walker of Dallas, TX is a plastic surgeon in the community who is excited to offer solutions for patients who have large, prominent, or misshapen nipples that are impacting their self-confidence. With surgical correction, many men and women can enjoy improved self-esteem.
What can cause large or unusually-shaped nipples?
There are a few different situations in which patients may experience prominent nipples. These include:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Breastfeeding and pregnancy
- Natural aging
Am I a candidate for nipple reduction surgery?
It is important to speak to a medical provider to determine if nipple reduction is right for you. Both men and women might seek this procedure if they are embarrassed about the appearance of their nipples, either in everyday situations or during intimate moments in the bedroom. With surgery, the size, shape, and overall appearance of the nipple—and the areola, if patients desire—can be improved for cosmetic purposes.
What else can be performed during the procedure?
There are a few other imperfections that can be addressed at the same time as nipple reduction if patients choose. Puffiness caused by excess fatty tissue in the breast, more specifically for men, can be removed with liposuction. The diameter of the areola can also be reduced in size, and patients can even have their nipples reduced in conjunction with breast augmentation or a breast lift. By consulting with a plastic surgeon about the areas of the breasts that you are concerned about, you can learn more about other procedures that can be performed simultaneously.
