Nipple reduction

Breast-feeding can sometimes cause nipples to become enlarged and misshaped. Occasionally women have developmentally large nipples. Nipples may be too long, too wide or both.

Summary of the procedure

For each case there is a different type of procedure that can help. The techniques that would work best for you will be fully discussed at your initial consultation.

The procedure is performed as a day case under local anaesthetic; there is no overnight stay necessary.

Postoperative period

  • You will have a waterproof dressing over the area that you need to keep on until you see the nurse after four to five days.
  • You can go back to work on the same day or the day after your surgery provided your job is not too physically demanding.
  • You can usually go back to swimming after ten days.

What you need to be aware of

As with any surgical procedure, there can occasionally be complications; possibly including scars, bleeding, infection and alteration of sensation. The chances of any complication can be reduced by observing the postoperative recommendations above. Smoking is also a risk factor. This subject is always fully discussed during your initial consultation.
