nipple reduction

Nipple correction helps to reduce overly large or wide nipples and repair uneven shapes.

The ideal diameter of a nipple is considered to be 6-10 mm. Asymmetry or other deflections can be congenital, but nipple enlargement as well as other unwanted changes may also appear during puberty, breast-feeding or traumas.

The reason this surgery is usually chosen are mainly cosmetic or stem from the inconveniences that come along with tight clothing.

Surgery at Christinas Clinic

The most commonly requested surgeries are nipple length reduction and nipple diameter reduction.

1) Reduction of overprojecting nipples

The incisions around the nipple are made 8 mm down from the top. The lower part of the nipple is  removed and upper part attached to the body with sutures. The lactiferous ducts are left intact.

2) Reduction of overly wide nipples

During the surgery, two vertical strips of skin are removed from the sides of the nipple and the left skin is closed with sutures. The aim is to achieve the ideal diameter of 8 mm while leaving the lactiferous ducts intact.

The surgery is simple, leaves little scars and has overall excellent results.
