Prominent nipples or puffy areolas can be a source of great embarrassment for men. Nipple correction surgery reshapes or reduces the size of the nipples to contribute to a more attractive, more masculine chest. Although it is a relatively minor procedure, nipple reduction can have a major effect on a man's confidence and self-esteem.

Suitable candidates for nipple corrections

Men who have large or droopy nipples are the best candidates for surgery. Patients should be in good overall health, with blood pressure under control. Candidates who smoke should stop before the procedure.

 

The procedure

It is important not to confuse the areola (the darker skin around the nipple) with the nipple (the projected part of the breast). Nipple reduction surgery reduces the size of the nipple, but we can also perform an areola reduction, which decreases the diameter or puffiness of the areola. It is quite common for one or both of these procedures to be combined with male breast reduction to improve the chest's overall appearance.

Nipple correction surgery lasts approximately one hour and is usually performed under local anaesthesia. During the procedure, discrete incisions are placed on the nipple or areola and excess breast tissue is removed. If you have an over-projecting nipple, a portion of the nipple might be removed, allowing us to create a more ideal contour. During your initial consultation, our surgeons will thoroughly discuss your concerns and desires.  

What to expect?

Recovery from nipple correction surgery is short. Most patients experience no bruising, very little swelling and minimal tenderness around the incision area. Most patients return to normal activity within one day.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any scarring after surgery?
Luckily, with most gynecomastia surgeries, there is minimal scarring just around the areola— that way no one ever has to know that you had the surgery in the first place. Gynecomastia surgery is a safe, easy, and effective way to help men get rid of excess breast tissue.
