What is nipple reduction?

Prominent nipples and areolas are a common point of concern for men. An over-projecting nipple can restrict confidence and impact one's interest in warm weather activities.

The overly large or wide areola can also be a point of concern. These issues are generally a result of genetics but can be caused by medications, steroid usage or weight fluctuations. While nipple reduction surgery reduces the size of the nipple, an areola reduction can be done to decrease the diameter or puffiness of the areola (surrounding darker tissue). It is quite common for one or both of these procedures to be combined with Gynecomastia or (Male Breast Reduction) to improve the chest’s overall appearance.

No need to feel embarrassed

Am I a Good Candidate for Nipple Reduction?

The best candidates for this procedure are men with big or puffy areolas who don't like how they look or who feel embarrassed because of how big they are. Candidates should be in good health in general and be able to control their blood pressure. If a patient smokes cigarettes, they should quit before surgery or stop for the whole time of surgery and recovery. Men who are thinking about getting their areolas reduced should look at pictures of people who have had the surgery before and after to get a better idea of how much it can help them. As with any cosmetic surgery, how happy you are with the results will depend on what you expect.

Nipple Reduction Recovery

There should be a week-long break from exercise and hard lifting. For two weeks, our Chicago nipple reduction patients should refrain from doing any chest exercises that are particularly strenuous. Scars in the nipple are typically tiny and hard to spot.

Nipple Reduction Results

One of the most enticing characteristics of nipple revision surgery with Shifrin Plastic Surgery is that it produces long-term results.

However, keep in mind that various circumstances may influence your decision after surgery. Age is one example; persons who undertake this surgery may see alterations as a result of aging, weight increase, and biological processes that take place over time. These circumstances may skew your perception of how effectively you recover over time.
