Nipple Correction – Reviews Of Plastic Surgeons
Nipple correction is a great procedure, especially in men and in women who are done with childbearing and breast feeding. I wedge out about 1/2 of the nipple and then fold the remaining 1/2 down and stitch aound the edge.
Correcting enlarged nipples
Nipple size is dependant on genetics, development, and the size of the breast and areola. In patients who are concerned that their nipples are abnormally enlarged, a simple surgical procedure can correct the nipples to reduce their size without affecting nipple sensation. I routinely perform this surgery in an outpatient setting. (Raffy Karamanoukian, MD, FACS, Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon)
Surgical options for protruding nipples
There are many options to correct protruding nipples. The most important first step is to be evaluated by board-certified plastic surgeon. Your surgeon should evaluate you and determine the underlying cause of the shape of your nipples.
Many times, this can also be seen with other breast changes such as a tuberous breast or breast asymmetry. The nipple recon touring may be performed at the same time as a breast surgery to help establish good balance throughout the breast and between each breast.

Protruding nipples on men can be a very embarrassing condition, but can easily be treated using local anesthesia. (Randy J. Buckspan, MD, Austin Plastic Surgeon)
Nipple reduction surgery can decrease the projection of an excessive nipple. It can be done under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort or recovery. It is more commonly done in women but there’s no reason a man couldn’t have it done. (Richard P. Rand, MD, FACS, Seattle Plastic Surgeon)
Nipple surgery usually helps protruding nipples
Nipple reduction is not a common request in men. First we need to figure what part of the nipple is bothersome…. the nipple itself, the surrounding pigmented areola or both. In men it is usually both.
This can be a minor case of gynecomastia and a relatively simple reduction can improve it. (John P. Di Saia, MD, Orange Plastic Surgeon)
Large, protruding nipples in both men and women can be made smaller by a short surgical procedure called nipple reduction. It can be done in the office under local anesthesia and the small scars are usually unnoticeable.
The amount that the nipples are reduced can be tailored depending on what the patient wants. (Caroline Min, MD, Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon)
Protruding nipples can be corrected
It is usually called nipple reduction and yes there is surgery to correct that. It is commonly performed in women, but I have performed it in men as well. It can usually be done under local anesthesia with some sedation. (Farbod Esmailian, MD, Orange County Plastic Surgeon)
You can correct over-protruding nipple easily in the office setting under local anesthesia. The amount of reduction is determined by you and your plastic surgeon. This seems to be an issue that concern both man and woman.
The recovery time is usually one to two weeks and pain is minimal. (Stewart Wang, MD, FACS, Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon)
Nipple correction surgery is possible for men or women. It’s a procedure which can often be done in the office under local anesthesia. Seek an opinion from a surgeon who is Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. (Carmen Kavali, MD, Atlanta Plastic Surgeon)
Nipple reduction surgery can be performed under local anesthesia through small incisions that are generally inconspicuous. Men who have undergone nipple reduction usually describe greater confidence when wearing a T-shirt or a swimsuit. (Ronald Friedman, MD, Plano Plastic Surgeon)
Enlarged nipples can be treated by a very small procedure to reduct the height of the nipple protrusion. This can be done under local anesthesia. (Steven Wallach, MD, New York Plastic Surgeon)
If you specifically have just the nipple protrude too much, that is treatable with a simple procedure.
More commonly, however, men have excessive breast tissue or gynecomastia, and that can be treated with removal of the breast tissue. At times, liposuction is also useful to contour the rest of your chest area.
Sometimes, you can use liposuction alone which decreases your scarring. The best thing to do is consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who can review your medical history to make sure the excess breast tissue is not medically related (such as hormonal imbalance, medications, and even marijuana use is a culprit).
If there is no medical cause, then surgical correction is a good option to give you a more masculine appearance, to help with form fitting clothing as well as just walking down the beach. (Bahram Ghaderi, MD, Chicago Plastic Surgeon)
Nipple reduction is not an uncommon request. Although I perform many more breast procedures on females, it is interesting that I find that more males request ‘nipple reduction’. This procedure is often performed differently for males and females.
I find that most males prefer their nipples to be as small or least protruding as possible. This procedure is performed under local anesthetic in about one-half an hour. (Sanjay Grover, MD, Orange County Plastic Surgeon)
It works like a charm, can be done under local anesthesia and the recovery is quick. I’ve never had someone say “Gee, I wish I still had those big, long nipples”. (Lisa Lynn Sowder, MD, Seattle Plastic Surgeon)
