Nipple reduction surgery involves decreasing the size of protruding or disproportionately large nipples and trimming excess tissue to create an aesthetically balanced breast.
Huge nipples would come along with people who has large areolas, this could occur in women who just gave birth.
For the patient who have these problems are recommended to do both areola and nipple reduction. In the early period after the surgery, there will be a small pleat around the created areola. Three months after the surgery the small pleat will eventually fade away and the surface of the areola will become smooth again. The patient should consider this surgery when they decided not to have more babies because if they have another baby the areola will enlarge again.
