Nipple Reduction Surgery will correct puffy nipples that are bothersome to men and women. Puffy nipples in a man can be especially feminizing when the nipple and areola are prominent, large, and stick out. Often, puffy nipples can be a side effect of gynecomastia or pseudogynecomastia (weight gain). If you’re unhappy with the size, shape, or position of your nipple on your pecs, Dallas Plastic Surgeon Dr. Azouz is here to help.
What is Nipple Reduction Surgery?
Nipple reduction is a minor plastic surgery procedure to create more naturally proportioned, (typically) smaller areolas and nipples. Both men and women alike can benefit from this cosmetic surgery procedure, but men who have mild breast enlargement or who dislike the look of their nipples can be very bothered, especially in tight shirts. Nearly any change in size or shape can be achieved with a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure at Azouz Plastic Surgery in Dallas.
Can I drive myself home after Nipple Reduction?
Likely, you will not be able to drive yourself home from a nipple reduction surgery. This is partly because many nipple reductions take place at the same time as more invasive procedures, such as a breast reduction or breast lift, or for men, gynecomastia surgery. Whenever sedation is used to ensure safety and comfort, patients will not be able to drive themselves home.
Do I need To wear a special garment?
Most likely, men and women undergoing nipple reduction, whether alone or as part of a combination surgery, will likely need to wear a special support garment. This is done to offer support to the tissues as they heal, resulting in a more consistent result and helping to reduce swelling. Dr. Azouz will specify which garments and how long you should wear compression.
Can I shower normally after Nipple Reduction Surgery?
Dr. Azouz will advise when you can take your first shower after your nipple reduction or gynecomastia surgery.
What is the best position to sleep after Nipple Reduction?
Dr. Azouz will advise you to sleep on your side or back after a nipple or breast cosmetic surgery is performed.
When will I see full results after Nipple Reduction?
As with all surgeries, there is a period of recovery time required to see full results. For people only undergoing nipple reduction surgery, recovery time is expected to be faster than in those who undergo an underlying breast procedure. For more extensive surgeries, seeing full results may take longer. In either case, you won’t see full results until the swelling has resolved, which can take several months to longer in some cases.
