The areola and nipple are natural components of the breasts, each unique in shape and size. While some individuals naturally have larger nipples due to genetics, others may experience changes in size or shape due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, or other conditions. For those who feel self-conscious about the appearance of their nipples, Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, a distinguished double board-certified plastic surgeon at Vantage Plastic Surgery in NYC, offers nipple reduction surgery.

Large nipples can present various challenges, from discomfort caused by rubbing against clothing to embarrassment due to their visibility through clothing. Moreover, larger nipples or areolas may appear disproportionate in comparison to breast size. Nipple reduction surgery is a transformative solution that allows individuals to adjust the size and shape of their nipples, creating a more balanced and desired appearance.

Nipple and Areola Plastic Surgery

Nipple or areola reduction plastic surgery is a straightforward outpatient procedure at Vantage Plastic Surgery. The initial step involves scheduling a consultation with Dr. Shteynberg to discuss the procedure and articulate the desired outcome. During this consultation, Dr. Shteynberg provides a comprehensive overview of what patients can expect before, during, and after surgery.

In most cases, incisions are strategically placed in the darker area of the nipple or areola, ensuring that scars are discreet and nearly invisible as the skin heals. The surgery involves removing a portion of the nipple or areola to achieve the desired appearance. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia for standalone nipple reduction or combined with breast lift or augmentation surgery under general anesthesia.

Recovery from standalone nipple reduction surgery is typically less than a week. However, if combined with other breast plastic surgery procedures, the recovery period may be longer. Dr. Shteynberg’s expertise ensures that the healing process is smooth, with scars fading over time.
