Nipple Reduction in Troy

Nipple Reduction in Troy

Protruding or drooping nipples can be a source of insecurity for some women. A nipple reduction in Troy reduces the projection and, sometimes, the circumference of your nipples so you always feel confident in your body.

Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell is a female plastic surgeon who provides a comfortable environment for you to ask questions during your initial consultation and throughout the aesthetic enhancement process. She can evaluate your general health and risk factors, examine your anatomy, and discuss your breast surgery options. She can also review with you the potential risks of your procedure and what to expect during your recovery. Dr. DeLuca-Pytell and her team aim to provide skilled cosmetic guidance as well as compassion and support.

Nipple Reduction Procedure Explained

Dr. DeLuca-Pytell uses local anesthetic for nipple reduction surgery, so you will not be asleep for the procedure. For your comfort, she also offers Pro-Nox™, an anesthetic system you control that uses a 50/50 mix of inhaled oxygen and nitrous oxide to provide fast-acting pain and stress relief.

Dr. DeLuca-Pytell offers different techniques for nipple reductions. During your initial consultation, you and the doctor will decide which technique to use for your procedure, based on your anatomy. Some may benefit from the wedge technique, where the doctor cuts a wedge-shaped piece out of your nipple and brings the edges together, creating a smaller nipple. With the donut technique, the doctor makes an incision around the base of your nipple and another at your chosen level of projection. She then removes the excess tissue and brings the edges together, reducing the projection of your nipple.

Regardless of which technique Dr. DeLuca-Pytell uses, the procedure should take about an hour. Expect to be at our facility for one and a half to two hours on the day of your surgery.

Combining Procedures

The doctor typically performs nipple reductions as stand alone procedures, but they may also be combined with other operations. At your first appointment, you and Dr. DeLuca-Pytell will discuss your preferences and whether you could benefit from combining procedures to achieve your ideal results.

Risks and Recovery

While nipple reduction surgery is a safe and relatively simple procedure, Dr. DeLuca-Pytell will discuss with you beforehand any risks associated with the surgery. If you have pierced nipples, you may have to repierce them after your body has healed from the procedure. Unlike inverted nipple correction, nipple reduction surgery has minimal impact on your milk ducts, so the procedure is unlikely to affect breastfeeding; if this is a concern, though, please be sure to discuss it with the doctor at your consultation.

The scars from nipple reduction surgery are among the least visible plastic surgery scars, and Dr. DeLuca-Pytell takes care to make them as inconspicuous as possible. While uncommon, potential complications with nipple reductions include infection and disruption of the suture line; these can be prevented with proper aftercare.

Full recovery from a nipple reduction procedure takes about one month. Recovery does not require compression garments. You can drive yourself home after the procedure and should not need to take significant time off from work to recover. Our team will schedule follow-up appointments to ensure you have a safe recovery and are satisfied with your results. Should you have any concerns, please call us at any time.
