Why Nipple Reduction?
The area of the breast women refer to as the "nipple" actually has 2 parts. There is the nipple itself, the gland that sticks out from the breast, and the darkened skin that surrounds the nipple, known as the areola. Nipple reduction surgery can address the size of the nipple or the circumference of the areola.
Enlarged nipples or areolas can be due to genetics, childbirth or breastfeeding. Whatever the cause, many women feel self-conscious about the way that their nipples look. If you're concerned that nipple reduction could affect sensation of your breast, you can rest assured that Dr. Mariotti's patients maintain full sensation except in rare cases.
Dr. Mariotti offers much more than beautiful results - he'll ensure that you feel relaxed and cared for. Discover why people from around Walnut Creek trust him for their plastic surgery.
Nipple reduction is often performed as part of a breast reduction, breast lift, or a breast augmentation. If nipple reduction is not being combined with another breast enhancement procedure, it will probably be performed under local anesthesia. After surgery, you should expect only a very short recovery time before you are able to return to work and your normal routine.
