How is nipple reduction performed?

Dr. Boonchai makes a small incision on the nipple itself. Once the incision is complete, the doctor removes excess tissue from the area of the incision. Stitches are then used to close the incision, and gauze dressings are placed over the breasts.

Pre-Operative Care

Our team will evaluate your medical history to check for conditions that may delay the surgery or the healing process. Some of the common conditions are:

  • Bleeding tendencies – problems with blood clotting, or lack of clotting
  • Scarring problems you have had in the past – like keloid scars and hypertrophic scars
  • Hypertension (High blood pressure) – particularly if it is not under control.
  • Smoking – this may affect your reaction to the anaesthetic and prolong the healing process. Please stop smoking 4 weeks prior to surgery.

Please avoid aspirin and brufen-containing medication for two weeks prior to surgery to eliminate the chance of post op bleeding. Generally it is best to continue any blood pressure or blood sugar medications. These may safely be taken with a sip of water on the morning of surgery.

Post-Operative Care

Dr. Boonchai will allow you to shower, please make sure to keep the dressings clean and dry at all times. It is vital not to wear clothing that restricts or flattens the nipple. You may want to get gauze pads, and Bacitracin or Aquaphor ointment. By moisturizing the nipple, it will heal faster. You do not want the nipple to rub against your clothing, and compression of the nipple can be minimized by using gauze pads and some paper tape, or with us of band aid. When showering, do not scrub the nipple. Do not use harsh soap or body wash on the nipple, and avoid scented lotions. Do not engage in water activities such as swimming for four weeks, or until your surgeon gives you permission. Remember that early after surgery the nipples are delicate, and you won’t have any feeling in them. If you engage in sexual activity, avoid the nipple area until everything has fully healed.

Most women feel an emotional boost after having nipple reconstruction, because the appearance of a real breast is now combined with the appearance of an actual nipple. For many, this is the time where you can truly get comfortable with the new you, and start to move forward.
