Today’s women are enlightened on cosmetic procedures.  Nipple reduction is very popular because many women feel their nipples are too large, too prominent, too droopy or out of balance with their body.

NIPPLE REDUCTION is done commonly today for women.  They choose this procedure because they are unhappy with nipples they feel are too wide or just too large for their breast.  Because our society today is more enlightened, and Millennials regularly have cosmetic procedures done as part of their regular health care routine, women of all ages today are choosing to “not just live with” nipples they don’t like.  They know we can correct oversized nipples and create the form, balance and symmetry they desire.

Breast form, balance and symmetry frequently impacts how people feel about their appearance.  This often causes problems in choosing clothing and activities.

Nipple Reduction Procedure

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. Davison and Dr. Pinell make very small incisions through which they work to remove tissues, change the nipple length and diameter and to improve overall contour and balance.  If the areola is too puffy, they will correct it during this surgery.  Many of their patients choose to combine their nipple reduction surgery with a Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation to get the optimal results they are looking for.
