Nipple surgery is a very well known procedure that aims to correct inverted nipples, reduce the size of the areola, and minimize enlarged nipples. The procedure targets men and women who are dissatisfied with the way their nipples look.
The procedure begins with the surgeon creating a small incision on the nipple or an incision around the areola. Excess fat and tissue is removed from the nipple and areolar regions, and the area is finished by applying stitches and gauze.
If you have inverted, protruding, or asymmetrical nipples and you feel your nipples are not proportional to your breasts, you should definitely consider nipple surgery.
After the surgery, the skin on your breasts may appear shiny due to swelling—this is normal and will subside in a few weeks’ time. You should also expect numbness in the surgical area for about a month and a half until you’re fully healed.
