Why Nipple Reduction?
Many women do not like the size, projection, or asymmetry of their nipples. These patients usually wear extra padding so their nipples are not visible through clothing. Other times they might feel pain or discomfort from tugging in clothes.
Luckily, there is an easy solution. Dr. Stein will numb the area so you feel no pain. He will then trim the excess tissue to resize and reshape the nipples. The procedure is done completely awake and takes approximately 30 minutes.
What Conditions Can Nipple Reduction Treat?

What Can You Expect Before Nipple Reduction Surgery?
Dr. Stein will take meticulous measurements during your consultation and draw markings on your chest the morning of surgery to place the nipple in an optimal position. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions you like to help you feel comfortable and confident about the process. After surgery, you will meet with Dr. Stein regularly so he can make sure your breasts are healing appropriately and that you are recovering well. Dr. Stein is well-known for his excellence in patient care and will be by your side every step of the way.
What Is the Recovery Like for Nipple Reduction Surgery?
Recovery is patient specific. Most patients take Tylenol and Advil alone after surgery and are pain free after a couple days. You can shower over your incisions 2 days after surgery and resume your normal activities shortly thereafter. Exercise can start 1 weeks after surgery once Dr. Stein confirms that your scars are healing well. The nipple shape improves with time and the incisions will take time to flatten and fade.
