Male nipple reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure that involves the removal of excess tissue from the nipples to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. The surgery can be performed on one or both nipples and is often done in conjunction with other body contouring procedures such as chest sculpting or breast reduction.
The goal of nipple reduction surgery is to create a more masculine chest appearance by reducing the size and projection of the nipples. This can be an effective way to alleviate concerns about the appearance of the chest and to boost confidence in one's appearance.
Male nipple reduction surgery is a relatively simple procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia. It takes about thirty minutes to one hour to perform the procedure. After anesthesia, the nipples go numb, and the surgeon makes incisions around the areola, the pigmented skin surrounding the nipple.
The surgeon then removes excess tissue and reshapes the nipple to create a more pleasing appearance. The incisions are usually closed with dissolvable stitches.
