Nipple Reduction, Why and How
Why do women consider nipple reduction? It can be actually pretty embarrassing to wear a bathing suit or a top or even a bra that doesn't really cover the nipples. Women have told me that they feel really embarrassed around their children or around in-laws or in professional situations where they feel like they always have to cover up. Some women actually get rashes underneath their nipples as their nipples droop and crate this raw surface. So, women are actually surprised to find out that there's a very easy procedure that can done under local anesthesia to reduce the projection of their nipples. They can choose how much or how little their nipple projects. Under local anesthesia, the skin along the sides of the nipple is removed and the top is sown to the base with absorbable sutures. Patients can return to work the next day.
