Nipple Reduction is done to reshape the nipple’s areolar area. This procedure reduces the size of the nipple and the darker skin surrounding the areola. The goal is to give a woman smaller, better-sized and shaped nipple areolar complex in proportion with the breast and the rest of the body. This procedure involves small incisions to remove the excess part of the nipple areolar area. This is usually done in outpatient clinics under local anesthesia. Suture are removed after four to seven days after the operation. There could be some swelling after the procedure, but it subsides after several days to weeks.
