Male Nipple Reduction – Length Reduction
Length reduction, as the term suggests, is used to correct nipples that are overly long. When nipples are too long, they may protrude noticeably or sag. Different techniques are available depending on the particular patient's anatomy.  Common options include the ring reduction or fold over procedures.

Male Nipple Reduction – Width Reduction
If the nipple is too wide but not overly protuberant, it can be corrected by means of a width reduction procedure.  The wedge reduction technique is the most common operation to correct this problem.

Male Nipple Reduction – Puffy Areolas
Another reason your nipple may be protruding is a collection of firm breast tissue underneath your areola. In this case, Dr. Stoker will make an incision along the areola and remove the amount of firm breast tissue necessary to allow the nipple to retract into the desired position.  

Male Nipple Reduction – Recovery
Recovery from male nipple reduction surgery is usually rapid. Patients typically have only modest discomfort following surgery. The majority of patients experience minimal bruising.  The results are visible immediately, and continue to improve over the course of several months.
