Nipple reduction surgery with Dr Phillip Craft at The MIAMI Institute, presents a safe, quick way to permanently address long or oversized nipples in men and women permanently. An increasing number of patients are requesting nipple reductions, either in combination with a breast augmentation, lift or reduction, or simple as a single procedure. Many women request a nipple reduction because breast feeding has permanently altered the shape and size of their nipples, making them longer and somewhat droopy.
A Nipple Reduction is generally performed under local anesthesia. The incisions are inconspicuous and made on the nipple. Excess tissue is removed in a sinusoidal pattern and the skin sutured. Often a cylinder of skin around the neck of the nipple is removed and then the outer portion is "pushed" back and sutured. Nipple sensation is generally normal and a woman's ability to breast feed is usually preserved. Dr. Craft's patients experience no bruising, very little swelling if any and some tenderness around the incision area. All in all, there is very little discomfort with very minimal down time and most patients return to normal activity within one day.
