Nipple reduction can reduce the height and width of the nipple, reshaping it into a desirable form, while preserving sensation.

During the healing and recovery process, you should be able to return to your normal daily activities just a few days following your surgery, depending on your tolerance of the swelling. We recommend avoiding any strenuous activities, or heavy lifting, for at least 2 weeks following the surgery. Wearing a good support bra for the weeks following the surgery is also recommended.
You will be able to see your final results and the shape of the nipple and areola within 2-3 months of the procedure, once the areola has settled into its new form and the scar has settled.
