What is an Nipple Reduction?

A Nipple Reduction corrects nipple hypertrophy–enlarged nipples and other glandular tissue

Why do you want a Nipple Reduction in Houston, Texas?

Although commonly presented in conjunction with large breasts and areolas, enlarged nipples can occur by itself. Even individuals with perky breasts proportional to their chest wall can experience protruding, long and hanging nipples. Many people do not like the appearance of this condition, and find form-fitting clothing and bras uncomfortable.

What procedures are often performed along with a Nipple Reduction?

Areola reduction surgery, breast lift, breast augmentation, breast reduction surgery and other breast procedures can be performed in tandem with a Nipple Reduction surgery. The surgeons at The Oaks Plastic Surgery (TOPS) will listen to your concerns and explain all the options available to patients regarding surgical and non-surgical procedures.

What do you want from a Nipple Reduction?

With a very low rate of complication and a high level of patient satisfaction, Nipple Reduction surgery can greatly enhance an individual’s self esteem regarding their breasts. Nipple Reduction surgery can make the appearance of the breasts more attractive and make clothing more comfortable to wear. Candidates may also include those with a hormonal imbalance interested in gynecomastia surgery. The surgeons at The Oaks Plastic Surgery want to work with you to achieve your specific goals.
