What Is Nipple Reduction?
Thanks to genetics, we have nipples of all shapes and sizes. Some are prominent. Others are a bit “too” perky. If you feel self-conscious about the size, shape, or prominence of your nipples, nipple reduction can help correct this issue. Performed at our convenient Manhattan, NYC clinic, Dr. Swift can reduce the size or prominence or adjust the shape of your nipples.

Preparing for Nipple Reduction
If you are a smoker, you should stop or reduce smoking before your surgery for at least two weeks and avoid drinking alcohol for at least one week to help improve and speed recovery. Certain supplements, including vitamin E, Omega fish oil, and aspirin (or products containing aspirin) should be discontinued after speaking with your physician as they may increase bleeding and affect recovery.
Nipple Reduction Recovery
You will likely be able to return to work within a day or two after the surgery. Any bruising should subside within a few days, while numbness should disappear within a week. Some patients experience numbness or tingling in the nipple which should subside within six weeks. You should sleep on your back for around a week after surgery and wear a soft sports bra for approximately two weeks. Stitches are removed within 5-7 days after surgery.
Is Nipple Reduction Right for Me?
If you are concerned about the shape or size of your nipples and want to reduce their size for yourself (and are not feeling pressured to do so by anyone else), you may be a good candidate for a nipple reduction. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you may wish to complete this process before having a nipple reduction.
How Much Does Nipple Reduction Cost?
Costs for your nipple reduction will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Prosper Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
