Nipple Reduction Procedure Overview

Understanding where you start & knowing about today’s safe, reasonable options for predictable outcomes…helps you make well informed decisions for now & your future.

The nipple is defined in two parts: the nipple and the areola. The nipple is the central part that projects and the areola is the pigmented area around the nipple.

Dr. Rudderman uses very small, nearly imperceptible incisions for his Nipple Reduction procedure. Working through these he can remove tissue, change the nipple length and diameter and improve overall contour and balance. If the Areola is too puffy, he can correct this at the same time. Many patients choose to have this done in tandem with other breast procedures, such as Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation, to achieve the most pleasing outcome and do it all under one anesthesia. Dr. Rudderman will help guide you through your choices to achieve the results you want and deserve.

  • Dr. Rudderman and his staff made the experience easy and comfortable. They were realistic communicating surgery expectations, expected pain levels and down time from work. Nurses were informative and friendly and wait times minimal. I also liked the fact that Dr. Rudderman does all his own work and doesn't let other less experienced people do parts of the surgery the way other doctors may. I'm only one week out of the surgery, but I am very satisfied with the results so far.
