Ladies with very large nipples may wish for them to be reduced in size. This should be thought about very carefully before any surgery. The procedure is a relatively simple one without complications and results are generally excellent in the long term.
Mr Banwell recommends the surgery be performed under local anaesthesia although some patient elect to have this performed under general anaesthesia undertaken by a specialist anaesthetist.
The procedure is relatively minor in terms of recovery and most women are able to return to the activities of daily living immediately. The sutures used need to be removed at 2 weeks. A small dressing is applied and this will be removed at one week at the first postoperative visit.
Bleeding, infection, nipple necrosis and inability to breast feed should be noted.
