Nipple enhancement is a plastic surgery procedure that alters the size and/or appearance of the nipples. It can be performed on both men and women, and it seems to be growing in popularity. There are several types of nipple surgery, including nipple reduction, nipple reconstruction, nipple augmentation and nipple repair. Nipple surgery can also be performed to reduce the size of the areolas (the darker pigmented areas around the nipples).

This surgery is often performed during or after breast augmentation, breast lift or reconstructive surgery. If you are concerned about the appearance of your nipples, schedule a consultation to discuss these issues. After a thorough examination, your surgeon can help you decide which nipple surgery, if any, can best address your concerns.

The best candidates for nipple surgery include individuals with:

  • Asymmetric nipples
  • Inverted or indented nipples
  • Enlarged nipples
  • Enlarged or puffy areolas
