Genetics and Lifestyle Influence the Need for Nipple Reduction Procedures

There is a surprisingly high number of women and men who feel their nipples are just too large or wide for their breast. Genetics usually accounts for this condition of large, prominent, protruding, droopy nipples. The form, balance, and symmetry of the breast often impacts how people feel about their appearance and typically causes problems in the selection of clothing and activities. Even though men and women live with it for years, today in our enlightened society they are realizing it can be corrected with a nipple reduction procedure. They can have a normal, attractive looking body and they have options to achieve this.

How Do People Benefit from Nipple Reduction Surgery?

  • Nipple reduction corrects long, droopy, overly prominent nipples
  • It improves the symmetry of the nipple area shape and size
  • Nipple reduction surgery improves balance and how you feel about it
  • It rejuvenates nipples after pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • It reduces asymmetries
  • Nipple reduction is often combined with Areola reshaping and reduction
  • It can achieve beautiful, natural-looking results
  • It improves self-image and feelings of sexuality

  • 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.
