Nipple Reduction

Nipples come in all shapes and sizes as part of normal anatomical variation. They may be asymmetric (different each size) and sometimes even bifid (split nipple in two parts).

Sometimes ladies with very large projected nipples may wish for them to be reduced in size as they can sometimes cause embarrassment or problems leading to being self-conscious, especially in intimate situations. Whilst Mr Banwell will reassure you that your nipples are just a variation of normal, an operation does exist to help reduce projection and lead to them being less obvious in clothes, swimwear and underwear. However, careful consideration needs to be made regarding nipple reduction.

The procedure itself is a relatively simple one performed under a local anaesthetic with few complications (scarring, adverse scarring, asymmetry, varying projection, numbness and potential issues with breast feeding. Results are generally excellent in the long term and recovery is rapid. Sutures are usually removed after 2 weeks and activities of daily living can recommence around this time.

Mr Banwell and his team will be happy to explain further about prices and available operating dates for nipple reduction in Sussex, Kent and London including the following locations: East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Eastbourne, Bexhill, Hastings, Brighton, Worthing, Chichester, Oxted, Westerham, Sevenoaks, Guildford, Caterham, Maidstone, Chatham, Ashford, Woldingham, Croydon, Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Bromley.

BRAS & GARMENTS

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.

The results of the surgery were excellent. Four months after the surgery there is hardly any evidence of scarring. Mr Banwell was also very good at explaining the nature of the problem and the treatment.

Mr Banwell explained to me exactly what he was going to do and made me feel at ease. The team were all friendly and made me feel very comfortable in the hospital. The scar on my forehead healed very quickly and I have full movement and feeling of my eyebrow. I would recommend Mr Banwell and his team because of the high standard of professional and personal care given to me.


Diane P.

I am writing to let you know that I was very pleased with the recent surgery to remove several moles on my face, neck and back. The whole process was carried out very efficiently.  The mole on my face has almost completely disappeared already.  The post-operative information was most helpful, although the leaflet I was given varied slightly from your verbal instructions. However, you accurately told me what to expect.  I have no hesitation in recommending your work to other people.  The on site staff were all friendly and helpful throughout.


Pamela H.

Care given prior to, during and after my operation has been extremely thorough. With specialist available to speak to at my own convenience, all aspects of the operation were readily explored and advice was tailored to fit my individual expectations. A particular benefit of Mr Banwell’s surgery was the flexibility in timing with both appointments as well as the actual operation date. Although the decision to undergo surgery was a difficult choice, Mr Banwell proved honest and realistic about expectations and the final outcome was exactly what I had requested. Although it is a decision not to be taken lightly, I would recommend Mr Banwell to any woman in the correct mind set.


Zoe L.

I was referred to Mr Paul Banwell in February 2010 when I was diagnosed with an advanced melanoma in the lymph nodes in my left groin.  At my consultation he explained in layman’s terms my diagnosis and all details regarding the operation I needed.  Mr Banwell operated on 27th February 2010. The operation was a complete success – he has removed all the cancer as subsequent scans have proven.  I then spent seven days recuperating in the McIndoe Surgical Centre in East Grinstead under Mr Banwell’s and his specialised teams care. They were all wonderful. Mr Banwell was at my bedside every morning to check my progress. His kindness and caring knew no bounds. He made all my fears and anxieties groundless and replaced them with optimism for a great feature and my aftercare was first class.  I would recommend this highly professional, dedicated, humane family man to all who need any medical intervention. He is the best. How do you thank a man who gives you your life back? There are no adequate words.


Pauline W.

During the time I have been in the care of Paul and the team I have been treated extremely well and very professionally, I could not have asked for better care. Paul was extremely caring and considerate throughout this time and has put me at ease during any procedures that I have had carried out. I trust his judgement completely and recommended Paul to a close family member who had a similar problem.
