Having a large and long nipple can cause discomfort in clothing and decrease self confidence. Nipple reduction procedure creates a smaller nipple to alleviate discomfort and restore self confidence. The procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia. Antibiotic ointment needs to be applied to the incisions for 5-7 days. The area needs to be kept clean for a few weeks to allow optimal healing. The scar is well concealed and not very visible. There is a chance that you might not be able to breastfeed in the future, so this must be taken into consideration when you want to pursue the procedure.
